BSOD atikmdag.sys R9 280x Problems!

Hello Everyone,
I bought my first gaming rig a couple months from now and only recently have i began to experience BSODS. Its been going on for about a month now and i have managed to narrow down the cause of this recurring BSOD. Whenever i watch videos at random times when i scroll the video to fast-forward or to fast-backwards (reverse w/e its called) I get the BSOD. I have searched the forum for many solutions and have attempted to try a few solutions (im quite amatuer to computing thus i havent ventured deeply into the complicated stuff i dont understand).

I have the log for the BSOD through the program bluescreenviewer and it comes up with this. It may be a bit outdated since i changed something so that it did not restart my computer immediately after the BSOD but only through manual restart

One of the main solutions that i believe would have worked is the solution in this post however it does not seem that it does.
http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-1656824/atikmdag-sys-error-bsod-startup.html

Specs:
Intel core i5-4670k
Asrock z87 Extreme 4
Gigabyte R9-280x
2x4GB G.Skill Ripjaw X DDR3-2133
Corsair HX650

I am open to any solutions to which can fix this problem and greatly appreciate it.

  1. Best answer
    Try disabling hardware acceleration in Flash settings.
  2. atikmdag.sys is a radeon driver. Sometimes you can fix the error by uninstalling then installing the driver again. make sure its not a Beta.

    http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=363233 gives another method to look at. They also say to uninstall Catalyst Control Center and see if that fixes the problem. Try that and if it doesn't work, try their method.

    Form experience I've also seen these sorts of problems with corrupted files get fixed wioth a Checkdisk/Repair - so try that.
    And I've seen virus do it - so run a Virus scan
