Non-Random BSOD - Atikmpag.sys Error

Hello guys,

I took blue screen error (atikmpag memory error)

It happens mostly while i watch movies via flash player. For example, I took 3 BSOD consecutivly just a minute ago. But I had not took any yesterday from the same situation.

System Specs:

i5 3570k
16gb corsair
asrock extreme4
asus 7850HD DCII
Vertex3 SSD (256gb)
High Power 750W Gold+
Windows 7 pro 64Bit

Everything is brand new.

I didn't do any OC, everything is running as stock. Also i'm sure that there is no temperature problem.

here is description of how error accurs:

First screen freezes, and goes black right after it. Then it returns back and windows says, ati driver is recovered. I could take control for just a minute and but this time it goes directly to BSOD. Always the same.
I figure it out that when just after first black-out appeared, if close all the browsers running flash in minute, it wont go BSOD but if i open any(browser with flash) after, it directly goes BSOD again.

Here is the picture of BSOD:

Here is Cpu-z Memory record:

Date , GPU Load [%] , Memory Usage (Dedicated) [MB] , Memory Usag - Pastebin.com ( look at line 425 it is when graphic card fails)

Here is Crash Dump Files:

Attachment 268766

Could it really a memory problem or is it related with driver or Flash Player it self?
I'm stuck on it. What do you suggest?

Hi,

Your dump files show a STOP 0x116 which is a Display or Graphics related BSOD.

Good work incxbxs

Hopefully it was just your ATI Graphics driver causing the issues.

If you do experience a new BSOD please post up the new logs.

Look forward to your feedback in a few days or so.

It would be interesting to see your new logs, follow Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions, let the tool run until it has completely finished and then upload the new logs.
