since the first day of windows 7 every time the system has been stressed i have gotten this issue. I have tried the following:
New display drivers
installed a discrete card
downclocking the ram to 1333mhz
and a new bios
system specs
asus m4a78te
phenom 2 945 @ stock clock
4 gigs ddr3 1600
gigabyte amd 6850 stock clocks as well
500 watt power supply
500 gb western digital blue

sounds like your PSU can't handle it

I'd try @ least an 800W or maybe a 1000W PSU from a big brand, like BFG, Corsair, Curicial, OCZ, ect.
don't bother getting some cheap knockoff. One thats 80+ certified is preferable

^ that's ridiculous !
If it turns out to be a psu issue a quality 650W is enough.
Crucial doesn't sell/make psu's and BFG is out of business.
Anyways more often then not that particular error is caused by unstable drivers.
In Add/remove dump the ATI install manager=everything
Download and install DriverSweeper

Run DS in safemode
Check off ATI
Analyze and clean
Restart normal
Install ATI 11.1 as ADMIN
Good luck!

i think a larger power supply is ridiculous, the thing was built for efficiency and it runs fine under linux under max load even when i overclock, il try what you said but if it doesnt work i guess reinstalling windows with the latest drivers is my only option

...This worked for me also! Just posted a link on the Solidworks forum where I noticed they've been struggling with this for years! I'm going to go ahead and thank you on behalf of myself & random- probably large- # of frustrated users.
Thanks!

Hi,

Did you delete EVERYTHING, when you uninstalled AMD Catalyst? There is an option (1st) to delete the program, but also an option (3rd) to delete all (drivers, register etc.).

Thanks.
