    BSOD playing games, WinDBG and WhoCrashed point ATIKMDAG

    Hello, I'm new here and searched many posts on this forum and others, but can't find a solution. The thing is, when I play games, for like 2 minutes, my game freezes, I can still move the mouse but can't alt+tab or ctrl+del or anything, then another 1 min later everything freezes, but doesn't reboot or gives me BSOD, sometimes it appears to really crash and then I get the BSOD. I used WINDBG and WhoCrashed to verify and it points to atikmdag.sys. I tried to do those steps of getting the new driver, do the expand command on atikmdag.sy_ and such, tried installing only video drivers without CCC, nothing solves it. Tried many drivers, beta or not beta, ran memtest for 7hours with no problem, stressed both gpu and cpu with furmark and CPU burner and it doesnt crash. Tried to reinstall windows but it didn't solve. Can anyone analyze my dumps and point me to the right direction? I'm going to give a try on 'verifier' cmd command now. I would be very grateful, and sorry for bad english.

Solved BSOD while playing games in BSOD Crashes and Debugging
I was playing some casual games, when I started getting BSODs Driver IRQL less or not equal. I'm not too savvy, so while I found the minidump files, I have no idea how to fix the crashes. For some reason, it only includes the latest BSOD dmp, as the two others gave errors.
any reasons for that and how do i check if my gpu and ram is okay and is not causing this trouble!
