AMD Catalyst Driver Version, and Driver History
I've literally spent 12 hours in the last two days installing older and older versions of Catalyst trying to find a working one. The last one that worked prior to initially updating was 13.9. This problem first occurred updating to 13.11 beta v8 for Battlefield 4.
Windows 7 x64 Ultimate.
During the install of Catalyst drivers, blue screen of death. http://i.imgur.com/kc69N16.jpg Culprit is atihdw76.sys. No matter what I do, what I uninstall, how I boot, as soon as I try and update my freakin drivers I get a BSOD. This started when I tried updating to the latest beta drivers for BF4.

- Pretty bog-standard Antech case with dual front fans, big top and side fans, standard upper-rear fan. Dual 1tb drives, no SSD.
- Prime95 completed overnight, checked it this morning ran with no errors. HWmonitor and CPU-Z show nothing wrong. Honestly never had any trouble with this system (aside from obviously it's getting old)
So this is freakin infuriating. I'm obviously going to be upgrading this system soon and if I can't work this out quickly I'm going to go intel/nvidia and never touch anything by AMD ever again. My system was working perfectly fine YESTERDAY and when I update to the new drivers (which the people in the EA tech support forums said to do) I suddenly can't boot without uninstalling my graphics card. Now I can't install the last working version and I'm just unable to use the machine basically at all.
Can anyone be a superhero and help me out here? I'd rather not have to by a new machine tomorrow.
