No button for testing DirectDraw and Direct3D was present, but this did appear on the bottom of the page
The file aticfx64.dll,aticfx64.dll,aticfx64.dll,aticfx32,aticfx32,aticfx32,atiumd64.dll,atidxx64.dll,atidxx64.dll,atiumdag,atidxx32,atidxx32,atiumdva,atiumd6a.cap,atitmm64.dll is not digitally signed, 
which means that it has not been tested by Microsoft's Windows Hardware Quality Labs (WHQL).  You may be able to get a WHQL logo'd driver from the hardware manufacturer.

They seem even more common without the ATI drivers installed.

OK lets see what driver you have.
Do you know what version exactly you installed?
Do you have a link tot he page I could take a look at or the make and model of your video card?

10.12 is the only release for 64 bit operating systems. Thinking the BSoD's were malware at the time, as I had some strange happenings with programs accessing websites, I splurged and upgraded instead of a reinstall. Kiiiinda shot myself in the foot I think now...

I could try the release by NGO, but have my doubts. http://www.ngohq.com...eme&dwn_id=1330

EDIT:
found some older drivers, 10.11 was a no go, 10.10e trying now. I remember 10.10 working back when, but who knows now.
EDIT2:
10.10e also unsuccessful. I clearly remember thos drivers working before, so I am unsure of where to go now.

I'm not sure how much I would trust the driver from the link you provided.
It would most likely be the same or a beta version. OK I want to test something. Reboot and go into Safe Mode and then see if the BSOD happens there.

BSoD's aren't happening in Safe Mode, at least in the time-frame they would in normal mode.

But are they happening at all in Safe Mode?
If so then the issue is not a driver but a OS issue or a hardware issue.

They are not happening in safe mode, sorry if I was ambiguous. I could leave it up for a longer time frame to make absolutely sure.

Well then the issue has to be OS or Hardware,
The most obvious choice would be the video card/ . Do you have onboard video or a spare video card to use?

Unfortunately I have neither of those.

I just ran it overnight in safe mode, still no BSoD's. I think its' quite safe to say they dont happen that mode.

The we can try a in place repair of your OS and see if that will work.
OK the issue seems to be the Win 7 OS itself that is causing your problem so lets do a Repair Installation by following the steps HERE.
Please read and follow all instructions carefully.

My install disc is at home, and I could get it mailed to me in a few days. I'm sure someone on my dorm floor has an .iso burnt, but that's not acceptable is it?
