Freezing at boot & BSOD/Crashing

Yesterday when I turned on my PC it froze while booting on the drivers loading screen, freezing at AtiPciE.sys. It did the same thing when I tried booting into Safe Mode. I put in my Win7 DVD and ran the startup repair after which my PC was able to boot into Windows normally and worked just fine for hours. This morning I booted my PC up and it was able to boot up into Windows but shortly thereafter crashed and gave a BSOD.

I have tried uninstalling the ATi drivers and running driversweep then re-installing the ATi drivers in safe mode but I kept getting an error when trying to install the driver. I then ran a system restore but that has not fixed it either. I also ran a spyware and virus check while in Safe Mode but that did not help either. When trying to install the ATi drivers while not in safe mode I did not get the error message but the PC crashes every time during the installation and gives a BSOD.

I'm hoping I won't have to reformat but I can not think of anything else to try.

Any ideas?

Not sure if this will help but I ran HijackThis, here's the log:
