Windows 7: ATI Driver crash

07 Jan 2011   #1

Windows 7 Build 7600 (Final)
ATI Driver crash

I upgraded to latest ATI drivers after hooking up a second monitor (TV via HDMI) and now I'm getting crashes, mainly while the computer is idling. There are normal a couple a day. Chromium has always been open since I leave it open. I disabled hardware acceleration in flash since I thought that might be the problem, no change.

Multiple minidumps and one broken full dump are attached. The dumps says the process name is dwm.exe so I thought maybe Aero was the problem, no change.

Full, broken dump: (114mb)
Probably won't be upload until about 1.15hr after this post time stamp
