Acer Aspire 5536 with Windows 7 Professional

Problem
Blue Screen of Death caused (according to WhoCrashed) by ATI driver ‘atikmdag.sys’ – ‘page fault in non-paged area’. Some forums link this to overheating. The latest drivers are being used. Any ideas?

Thanks for the suggestions -I have a few problems with Memtest 34a- (I have 4GB of ram) - can you run it from a USB drive as I have no working DVD - see earlier problem!-and no floppy drive. If yes - what do I put on that usb from the zipped file? I presume I change the boot order in the bios for it to work?

And Crossbow -which of those many links are you suggesting? Driver Detective found no probs with ATI drivers as they are the latest from the ATI site. Any other links there you would recommend? Thanks again both for your help.
