Issue Details:

Since I attached a second monitor to my computer I have been consistantly experiencing the BSOD "Display drivers failed to reset//timed out". It generally happens when I am playing WoW, although has also occured when watching videos on WMP. 'Seems' to happen more often if WoW is playing on one monitor while WMP is open on the other. Sometimes I can play for over an hour without a BSOD, or sometimes it takes less than 5 minutes.

Installed Catalyst 12.6 beta (read that this can solve the problem), and also follow your advice. Don't know which one did it, but I've been playing for over 3 hours without a BSOD.

Thanks for your help and quick response
