Windows 7: Graphics card causing boot problem

Did all the things what you mentioned.. Just 2 things i couldn't- updating ethernet driver. There wasn't any exe file, just few sys and dll's and an inf file. I tried clicking 'install' in the context menu after selecting that inf file, but an error popped up stating that the file you selected doesn't support this method of installation.
2nd is the ntdisk.sys thing. Can you help me updating it?
And now, even after doing all the un-installations and re-installation of catalyst drivers, the issue is still there..
Forgot to tell that while carrying out the operation, some BSoD's also appeared. However, they looked or atleast seemed same.. Would you like to take a look?
And today, i also got a couple of random display turning off (not the monitor) with the text- 'No signal input'

No, I would like a picture of the back of the computer case. I have an idea brewing.

I hope the image quality will be fine for you to work upon your idea.

I have a feeling that your power supply is sub 200W. Something around 150W, likely. I don't think your installed unit can handle it.

A very good point, LS

@EzioAuditore- yes please upload your last couple of dumps. I would like to take a look.

Regarding the Ethernet drivers, put the files you downloaded into a folder on your desk top. Open Device Manager and locate your Ethernet Driver under Network Adapters. Right click on it and select Properties. Click on the Driver tab. Click on the Update Driver button. Select Browse my computer for driver software and point it to the folder on your desktop.

ntdisk.sys - I cannot find what this driver does except that it is an XP/2000 driver. Searches lead to a lot of Eastern Asia websites and I do not read the languages.
warning   Warning
Following these instructions will break whatever device/program ntdisk.sys belongs to.

If you are feeling brave, create a restore point. Do a search on your C: drive for ntdisk.sys. Find the file and rename it from .sys to .bak. Reboot and the driver will not load. This is a viable way of dealing with obsolete drivers, except, in this case, I do not know what this driver does.

@LS
You meant that the power supply is way more than that my card can tolerate? I'm not good at these voltage, power etc things.. May be if you can explain in detail...
@Carl
Will try that renaming thing too.. Atleast, it cant get worse than which i'm currently facing.
And i'm currently posting through mobile. Will upload the dumps as soon as i return home.

That ntdisk.sys was related to that recovery app. Deleted that driver.

And Something strange happened today.When i started my pc now, the computer did boot up successfully in the very first try but there was no display as if the GPU had given up. But after pressing the restart button 5-6 times , the display came up..

I ran FurMark for about 15min (as the temp reached around 78, so quit'ed it), for that duration, no artifacts were found. And here's the dump attached.

I'm so horrified now, i cant afford any other card now..
Update- I shut my pc down. Switched on, still the same black screen after starting windows screen. It still exists.
