Windows 7: BSOD while playing Metro 2033

The Broadcom folder is gone nor do I have any BASFND.SYS files left in my system. Also, I updated my Steam files manually they are exactly the same DLLs that were updated yesterday at the time of BSOD.

After playing Metro 2033 for about 30 minutes my computer locked up but there was no BSOD. I could not CTRL+ALT+DEL I had to hard reboot the machine, then checked the event viewer and found this warning:
Display driver amdkmdap stopped responding and has successfully recovered.

When I played Metro with Catalyst 10.1 I had only 2 occasions when it locked up without BSOD. Ever since I updated Catalyst to 10.3 and 10.4, I started getting BSOD with this game. Should I perhaps revert to the older driver?

Why should the older drivers work and not the newer ones?
I would suspect that there's a hardware issue.
Try running this free stress test:

FurMark Setup:
- If you have more than one GPU, select Multi-GPU during setup
- In the Run mode box, select "Stability Test" and "Log GPU Temperature"
Click "Go" to start the test
- Run the test until the GPU temperature maxes out - or until you start having problems (whichever comes first).
- Click "Quit" to exit

I don't know but I had fewer issues with this game and Catalyst 10.1. May be I just got lucky when played it for the first time as these crashes seem to occur intermittently. I work for a software company I know what intermittent crashes are and how difficult it is to catch them.

Nonetheless, I will try this Stress Test utility but frankly speaking I am very skeptical about it.

I just played Crysis and Crysis Warhead for over an hour without any issues. These games are extremely taxing on the GPU. I have also played whole campaign of Gears of War without issues.

I suspect that it may be a combination of game and ATI drivers that are not optimized for Metro 2033 yet, I read about similar problems with nVidia cards. Besides I played the first two chapters of the game without any issues. Last but not least there are other people who have lots of problems with Metro 2033 stability-wise including but not limited to BSODs, system lockups, it even corrupts windows system files that require system restore.

Am having a similar issue but my drivers are nvidia, mb 680i sli, 2x gtx 260, latest bios update: 15.53_nforce_win7_64bit_international_whql and 260.99_desktop_win7_winvista_64bit_english_whql.
I have many other games on steam, none does this. I dont believe is a driver specific issue.

It has been while since I posted here. Since then both of my Radeon 5870 cards failed or at least started to fail one of them started making very loud buzzing noise the other was leaking some oily substance from the fan. I had both cards replaced under warranty however currently I am running on a single card and I have completed Metro 2033 without an issue. I do not know if my cards were faulty from the beginning or not but to me it seems that single card setup is less troublesome.
