This last month i have noticed a huge increase in my BSODs, 90% of them while gaming (random, could be 10 minutes of gaming, could be hours), 1 or 2 i woke up to from some point in the middle of the night. I have no idea what is causing them as i get different errors almost every time, but its 1 of 3 causes in BlueScreenView, hal.dll, ntoskrnl.exe or atikmdag.sys. Sadly i have no idea how to read a mini dump, so i have no idea if this is software or hardware, if someone could help me out i would be very grateful.
On the driver side, i am running 12.1, because if i update past this, my video card goes really stupid and glitchy, image example below. The screen glitches as soon as it boots on any newer drivers, i get the lines/image glitches even just sitting on the desktop not doing anything, and scrolling or moving windows makes it 100 times worse. I believe i have narrowed this problem down to the Sapphire mini DP to DVI adapter i have for 1 of my monitors (all DVI). if i boot, unplug the adapter, then plug it back in, problem goes away until the next time i boot.http://img833.imageshack.us/img833/276/20121031002628.jpg
But i still got BSODs on the newest drivers (the 23rd), so i went back to the not glitchy 12.1 drivers. Temps should not be an issue, card has never been above 62C, rest of temps in system seem fine. RAM checked out when i bought it, but haven't run memtest in a year or so.
Here are my mini dumps. Oldest one is from jan, but i have had 5 this month so far.http://dl.dropbox.com/u/39480951/2013%20mini%20dump.zip
AMD Phenom 2 X6 1090T BE @ 3.9ghz | CORSAIR H80 | 2x 4gig Mushkin Enhanced Silverline DDR3 1333 | Sapphire 2SR Radeon HD 6970 | CORSAIR CMPSU-850TX 850W | GIGABYTE GA-890GPA-UD3H AM3 AMD 890GX
Hopefully that covers everything.
