I'm sure someone on my dorm floor has an .iso burnt, but that's not acceptable is it?

Nope can't help you with that due to legality.

My install disc is at home, and I could get it mailed to me in a few days

We can wait till you get it and then proceed.

Do you find if I fiddle with graphics card drivers while we wait? Driver sweeper tells me that the problem driver is still around, even though its supposedly only part of CCC, so I want to see about getting rid of it.

Yep I would uninstall everything.
Then install the next older driver only and not the CCC suite.

Crash still occurs with generic drivers, and older standalone versions(although those standalone versions still have that driver for some reason) :/ If it comes down to it, at least the card is still well within warranty.

This is true and might be worth changing to a different card or to a nvidia card.

Brief update, my parents failed me on sending the discs out, but I'm home on break right now and will be able to run the tests. I switched to a nvidia card borrowed from a friend, and am still getting many crashes of the same, and different types, so I've really no idea what's gone wrong now.

OK after going back through the topic since it has been awhile I needed to refresh my self with the topic.
You need to uninstall all video drivers completely. To do this go into Device Manager and then expand your Video Card or Graphics Card entry.
Right click on the drivers and uninstall them all.
You may want to do this all in Safe Mode as the drivers will not be in use then.
You need to make sure any old drivers are gone so that you can download and install a fresh copy from the manufacturers website.
