Describe your issue:
Driver installation fails, Windows BSOD and shows error message "SYSTEM THREAD EXCEPTION NOT HANDLED in atikmdag.sys".

I have tried the different installs as listed in the "Driver version installed" section, along with the auto detect. I have uninstalled, reinstalled, updated my BIOS from F6 to F7a, nothing seems to work. After scouring the internet, it seems I'm not the only one having these kinds of issues, my MOBO is PCI-E 2.0 which seems to be a common issue. I have tried Windows safe mode, uninstalling all the drivers, updating BIOS (to the beta version for my MOBO), I even booted into an old Windows 8.1 install (same PC) and tried that, same error.
Right now I have a £500 paper weight on my desk, I can put my old GTX 770 in and it just works.
