Windows 7: BSOD and flickering screen at random time

BSOD and flickering screen at random time

Hello
I few weeks ago I switched out my hard drive and everything worked fine for some time. A few days ago my pc blue screened while playing Elder Scrolls:Oblivion. Which you know...happens. But now, the screen starts flickering colors and blue screens at random times (watching movies, browsing facebook, reading news) and sometimes the screen flickers right from startup and goes immediately to BSOD.
I've checked all the wiring and everything seems fine.

I've read from other posts that DMP files are needed so I'll try to include them.

Any feedback would be much appreciated.


Sorry for any bad grammar.

The cause of your BSODs seems to point to your ATI graphics driver. Please update it following these instructions.

I'm unable to install the catalyst. "Failed to load detection driver" is the error I get and then it simply closes.

Can you go onto the device manager and look to see if there is a yellow triangle next to your graphics card?

Can you create a system restore point by following these instructions.

System Restore Point - Create

Then update your graphics card driver by right clicking on your graphics card in the device manager, then update driver.

In device manager there is no yellow triangle and it says my drivers are up to date. And I cant create any new restore points cause I can only start my pc in safe mode without BSOD.

Can you please create a system restore point. If you don't know how follow these instructions.

System Restore Point - Create

Then can you go onto device manager and look at display, is there a yellow triangle next to your graphics card?

Then can you choose the update driver option in the properties section when you right click it.


Sorry for the double post I'm on my mobile and it doesn't update properly sometimes.

Hmm, your driver isn't up to date at all, it was released in 2011.
Can you uninstall the driver from the control panel and update it using windows update.

If that doesn't work can you try enabling driver verifier to see if there is anything else causing BSODs.

Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Follow these instructions but when John says enable everything except for Microsoft Cooperation You should also leave Unknown and Macrosoft.

Uninstalled the drivers and reinstalled but the outcome is the same as before.
How do I enable driver verifier?
I didnt understand the last part of your message...

Ive added the new DMP files in case that has been a change

Sorry, I was on my mobile and it's really awkward. I've edited my response.
Before you enable Driver Verifier can you please run a stress test on your graphics card using Furmark. You have 0x116 video tdr errors which can be caused by faulting graphics cards.
Follow these instructions.

I think I cant run the stress test in safe mode, which is the only way I can start pc. At least it wont let me run it.
On a side note, I finally managed to install the AMD catalyst and drivers which seemed to fix the problem. No blue screen and even got to game a little but then later, out of the blue, BSOD again whilst browsing internet. So I'm back in square one


again i included the latest dump files

Can you post a screenshot using Speccy - System Information - Free Download so we can look at the temperatures.
You have 0x116 bugchecks, these are difficult to solve.

Are you overclocking your GPU? If so then please stop.

You can take a look at this
