Windows 7: BSOD While Gaming 0xA0000001 Atikmdag.sys

Ok, just played for an hour with a live stream in the background (forgot to turn it off) and no BSOD. I don't want to say it's fixed yet because it was only an hour, but that's already 3x as long. I will try the game again later. But to be honest I'm not getting my hopes up :P BF3 crashed within 10 minutes of playing a few weeks ago, played again the next day for 1 hour and no BSOD. So like I said, it is still to early too say if this is working or not. I will still run memtest tonight and see how that does. Here are the temps from playing today, in case anyone is curios. Also, for essenbe, here is the minidump file you wanted to see. It is not the most recent because system restore deleted all the newer ones. It shouldn't matter though because WhoCrashed showed every single error being the same.

So I guess to recap. I need to mess around with a few driver versions and see if that resolves anything. Then I need to run memtest tonight, and if that comes up error free then I can try another PSU. And if the problem persist I can either buy a 760, or send in my card. But at this point who knows, it could be something else entirely.
Yes mate as essenbe says and I ma just wondering re the slots now I know my board has a slightly different "procession" order in that slot 2 going away from the CPU is actually the first "starter" slot and not as what one would think it usually is - the one nearest the CPU.
I am only pointing this out because you mentioned slot one is blocked by the cooler??

Having said all that I suspect the problem is elsewhere

Hmm missed this post wasn't looking just out of pure interest I am wondering what the volts come up with using HW Info?? as I am a bit of a fan of double checking as I know that there have been times when the BIOS has been out of whack with one of the software utilities readings ie Speccy or CPUID and HW Info for that matter

Ran Memtest last night, no errors. Later today I'm going to leave FarCry3 open for a few hours and see if it will crash. So the driver may or may not have fixed it, I just don't want to say so for sure because sometimes it can take longer than 1 hour. But FC3 did crash within the first 10 mins last time. It is good to know that it is not the RAM though

The crash dump you posted in post #41 is of 01/06.

If there is any further BSOD after altering the display driver, let us know.

And RAM was even not a suspect.

Ok, it was just everyone was saying it could be RAM issue, I don't know anything about BSOD's so I'm just doing what you all tell me to do :P I will do more testing and either report back with good news or bad news. And yeah, it is outdated I don't have any recent because system restore deleted them all.

So my question to you Arc is that you believe the issue was or is software related only?

Here is what I believe about your issue.

First apply any other version (better a known good WHQL) of the display driver.

If the display issue continues with multiple version of the driver, unfortunately there is no other way but changing the GPU.

Sorry Arc I probably am to blame for the RAM issue as I think I suggested it in the first place. It was only really to eliminate any hardware stuff. Apologies for the confusion.

Please dont take it like that, John. Though it was not very specific in this case, but memtest is never a bad idea. We know that failing memory can cause any issue.

No mate I didn't mean to sound like it probably looked was beginning to willing to try anything as I like to eliminate stuff as one goes along.
