BSOD - Only happens in games.

Hey, everyone it's been quite a while of having this issue with my desktop and it's becoming rather troublesome, I've formated twice and reseated my hardware and nothing is clickin for me. Here's a list of System Spec's and the BSOD errors to follow.

If anyone can please post or pm me with a solution I'll pretty much kiss your feet.
So i'd like to thank anyone who replys with a resolution to this issue in advance I would be more then grateful.

Everything for drivers "Should" be up to date as far as I'm aware since my last format was fairly recently. Any questions feel free.


Health Report came clean aswell ^_^.

Okay I feel like doing some of the work for you guys, I opened my dumps in BlueScreen View and 1 and only dump the last one is saying, "atikmdag.sys" is the cause. from my understanding this would be a ATI Driver issue no? I'm having troubles logging into the XFX site to download there drivers. So i'm going to dl and driversweep the newest ATI drivers and update with progress.

It's always better to grab the drivers from AMD directly.

atikmdag.sys is definitely connected to AMD drivers.


The 5970 is very problematic for drivers. (I had one) You might have to try a few different and older sets before you find a 'good one'.

Also, don't forget the CAP profiles. These are particularly important if you are using on 'old' driver. CAP profiles contain' fixes' not found in the drivers. They are sometimes the difference between working and non-working.

Thanks for your reply I been waiting very patiently for one haha, I've never had previous issues with the card it's roughly a year ago it's only a recent dilliema and I do use profiles for some games. Oddly this only happens RARELY in Heroes of newerth or League of Legends, but more common in graphic demanding games like Metro, Deus Ex, Battlefield, Starcraft 2 even. I'll let you guys know what happens after I grab new drivers wish me luck.
