My laptop recently developed what seems a worsening problem.
It's a Win7x64 computer, running an AMD Radeon 5 graphics adapter.
For about the past month, roughly the start of 2017, my computer has been crashing, mostly during browsing, giving a BSOD "infinite loop" error. When this would happen, it would take repeated attempts to reboot, as most attempts would result in a BSOD right after the Windows logo vanished. The consistent part of the error was "driver got stuck in an infinite loop" (but would not specify WHICH driver) and 0x000000EA, with other strings.
The problem during boot has worsened in recent days, despite efforts to clean the system, until I can only start in either safe mode or after deleting the display drivers.
It's certainly a display driver error, since deleting the AMD graphics driver will always result in a successful (but generic) start, and reinstalling the driver almost always results in a BSOD.
I'm using the latest Jun 2015 drivers, and rolling them back to the previous version did not help.
Any ideas? I'm posting post-crash data below from the most recent failure to boot.
