How long did you had your radeon working before this happened to you?

When video card can't accept drivers it often means that card is dying, esspecially if you have done everything you can about software.

Have you noticed any strange lines accross screen or some kind of artifacts recently?

It could, but drivers for your radeon are digitally signed. Don't know why they would not be. Try to install some older legacy drivers, and update your windows 7 to SP1 if you have not already.

Update failed? SP1 update failed? Which version of windows are you using? Which build? Do you have retail, oem or perhaps RC version?

Have you checked that SP1 is not already installed?

How did you get your windows? With your PC, or it came on separate DVD, are windows legit?. When you check your MY COMPUTER properties and look at the info of your PC what does it says? OS version part.. It should say something like Windows home 7 build... or Windows 7 pro... or... check that entire line.
