Win7 issue with ATI HD 4870

the issue with my pc is that everytime i try to run certain graphic intense application, just after few moments the desktop disappears & a blue screen stating a fatal error as well as memory dump appears instead. i tried updating my graphics as well as each & every hardware component drivers to the latest available, but to no avail. i also updated my bios to the latest one but still no good news. the same problem persists when i try to render my scene in maya11, few moments after the render initializes, the desktop screen rips apart as if the video went dead & the same blue screen appears, restarting my pc. i have tried reinstalling my os quite many times now(booting from dvd, formatting the partition, reinstalling), but after a while the error repeats. other stuffs like surfing, music, watching full hd videos, games such as cod2, cod mwf2, cod5, rail sim, ship sim, bia hell's highway work excellently. i keep downloading movies & tuts for days & my pc remains running without any hitches. this problem started just after, a few months ago when i had to use system restore. apart from this my pc works fine. kindly provide me with a suitable solution.
