No driver works after 17.3.3 for 8970M M17x R2

I have an Alienware M17x R2 built in 2010 equipped with AMD Radeon 8970M Crossfire. I have tried every driver release after 17.3.3 and they all do the same thing: crash windows (BSOD) on the ati driver every time it tries to initialize hardware accelerated graphics (like windows aero). I am trying to play doom eternal using the latest driver, but like I said before, every driver after 17.3.3 has this behavior. I can provide any information and the vBIOS from both my cards to help resolve this issue. Please help. My suspicion is something chanted in wattman from 17.3.3 to later releases that is tripping a bad value somewhere causing the reboot. The system works flawlessly with every driver release from 17.3.3 and backwards.
