Describe your issue:

Whenever I play star citizen 2.6.1 (resolution 1280x720), after less than 5 minutes my computer will blue screen and point to atikmpag.sys as the cause. I cleaned out the inside of my PC. I have removed and re-installed drivers twice, one using windows device manager, once using AMD uninstall tools. I followed an online guide and manually expanded and copied into the windows driver directory folder a fresh copy of atikmpag.sys. Guide is located here Fix atikmpag.sys / atikmdag.sys blue screen errors (BSOD) . I also used a windows forum suggestion and added a delay into the registry to give the video card time to recover. None of this has worked.
