    Try uninstalling the card in the device manager, physically removing the card, putting it back in with either newer drivers (if available) or the previous version of the driver, 6.4 or 6.3..

    uninstall your ati drivers from the add/remove utility, then use Driver Cleaner to completly remove all ati files, then reinstall the latest ATI drivers.

    Some graphics driver bsods can be caused by a dodgy installations or upgrades.
