It could be a PSU issue. If you PSU is not rated for the graphics or is failing it could cause this issue when the extra graphics are needed.
Please run a new WhoCrashed report and include with your next reply.

At this point i believe the issue is with the Catalyst Control Panel
So let's try this, reboot into safe mode and uninstall the control panel.
Then go to the Device Manager and uninstall the video driver.
Please Go to
1: STARTand the click on RUN
2: Type in devmgmt.msc
3: Click Enter
4: Right click on the video card and then click on Uninstall

Now reboot and only allow the system to install the newest video driver for your card.
Do not install the Catalyst Control Panel
Try the game now and let me know what happens.
