    ATI drivers causing BSOD

    I'm running the ATI AIW 7500 card w/ the display drivers. I was getting frequent blue screens almost everyday and i tried reducing fastwrite from 4x to 2x, changing aperture size 32,64,128, increased voltage to 1.80, disabled power mgmt in bios, I removed old traces of previous ati driver installs, win2k updates are current, I even tried re-installing sp2, I thought i had this problem licked but after 2 weeks I just got another BSOD of the stop 0x001e k_mode_exception variety. this one and the irql_not_less_than_or_equal are common ones I've been getting. All sources point to buggy video drivers as the likely suspect, but others seem to have no problems running ATI AIW 7500 and win2k, why is mine so buggy? and what can I do to fix it?
