You can switch off VPU Recover

You can remove the ATI Drivers then go to Windows Update and it should offer a driver for ATI

If this does not run well, re-install from ATI as you could have been unlucky

If you go for the uninstall, after removing the ATI Drivers, get tuneup trial

http://www.tune-up.com

run disc clean up then registry clean up then click optimize to run reg defrag, which takes a few minutes and needs a reboot.

After the reboot, either get a driver from Windows Update or ATI

VPU Recover is a feature unique to ATI, which saves you from a blue screen of death. When the VGA card stops responding to driver commands, VPU Recover resets the vga card, and turns you back to Windows. This allows you to save your work and safely reboot

If after reinstalling windows and drivers my guess would be the card went kapooy
