Had the Sapphire 7950 OC 3gb card for about 2 and half months it has been fine till about a week ago when i updated the software and drivers and i was constantly getting BSOD atikmpag.sys errors
I have just re-rolled the driver seems to be okay for now but has BSOD odd occasion
Anyone know any fixes ro what the cause might be or its the card?
the dump files read:

i have the XFX 7950 installed on a new build running windows 7 64bit and i was getting BSOD on a regular basis.
I tried all sorts of things i tried the card on a vista 32bit machine(12.4 for vista 32bit) and it worked fine no BSOD for 3 days. I also tried the new build without the 7950 card(using the gpu on the ivy bridge cpu) and the machine was stable for 3 days. So the conclusion was the 12.4 driver was causing the issue.
