Windows 7: BSOD while gaming/idle - latest error is atikmpag.sys

BSOD while gaming/idle - latest error is atikmpag.sys

I've started to get BSOD's lately, which started while playing Star Wars: The Old Republic, but now, sometimes occur when I'm watching a video or just idle on my desktop. The most recent error message I got was atikmpag.sys. I initially suspected a video card issue, but I have the latest drivers, according to AMD's website. I have attached the dump file. Any help would be appreciated.

If you are using a program like Ccleaner please stop using it while troubleshooting.
This because programs like Ccleaner remove dump files that are needed to troubleshoot.
Or configure Ccleaner to not remove dump files:

Have there been bluescreen this month?
There are only logs from last month.
Please check {windows partition}\windows\minidump and check if there are any recent dump files saved.
Please make sure your pc is configured for small dump files How to configure minidump | Windows 7 tutorial

Just for the sake of argument, I went ahead and removed my AMD drivers and re-installed the newest ones from their site. For now at least, the blue screens appear to have stopped. This can be marked as solved, and I will update if anything else happens.

Stop Error, and PC automatically powers off while gaming, or Idle !
Hi, The problem started 7 months ago, but it was minor. Mostly, while gaming, in the main menu, the PC just shuts down. Sometimes it gives me " Stop errors". The last STOP error was 0X0000007F. I've updated BIOS and the Graphics Driver.
