Hi, I am still getting freezes on my machine, though the BSOD seem to have stopped. Perhaps the Marvell controller is what was causing the BSOD?
At any rate, the freezing is still a constant occurrence, but I am still unable to pinpoint why or when it will happen. My computer has frozen twice today and 3 times yesterday, but it was fine for several days in a row prior to this. I have checked everything I know how to check, installed/updated every driver
I can, and still the freezes come. I have noticed that they do tend to come more frequently when gaming, but I can have a freeze just browsing the internet with no other applications open.
I don't think heat is a issue as I have been watching the GPU-Z and CPU-Z programs and recording the temp. I have also double-checked all my wiring inside the case and ensured that everything is locked snugly into place. The freezing can occur 6+ hours after I boot, or it can happen within 15-20 minutes.
I have had some games crash once or twice without freezing the computer; WoW has crashed twice and given me a memory error. I ran the boot Memory checker on a UDB drive for a few hours and found no errors with my RAM, though.
I have looked at dozens of forums relating to the atikmdag.sys issues, but have found nothing that has worked for me.
Any help you may be able to give would be greatly appreciated; I'm at the point that if someone told me that it was for sure a certain piece of hardware, I would throw that piece away and get something else. This freezing problem has really crippled my computer, and this is the computer that I work on as well as game, so this is a very serious issue for me.
