I recently had trouble with the new 10.11 ATI drivers
causing my to BSOD with an atikmdag.sys error every time I tried to watch a video in my web browser. It would do that or cause the display driver
to stop responding and then start the video with a completely green video but sound. I decided to uninstall and go back to 10.10, so I uninstalled using the ATI installer, then preceeded to go into safemode and use driver sweeper to remove any leftovers. When I tried to install, everything in the package installed except my ATI display driver. I tried this over and over, including the 10.11 ones, and still kept failing. I eventually went back to the CD that I was given when I purchased my card, which was 10.3. It worked for awhile but eventually it started to BSOD. I would like to just hop back up yo 10.10 again so I can play several games without the performance hit that 10.3 has, but I can't figure out how to get it to install. I might also add, at one point, I received a "MOM.Implementation does not exist error," but it went away after I reinstalled the 10.3 drivers for the umpteenth time.
My system looks like this:
Asus P5Q-E Motherboard
Intel E8500 @ 3.16Ghz
4GB DDR2 RAM
ATI HD 5850
Dual Monitor setup as well
I am 100% sure its a display driver problem considering when I uninstall the drivers, I can do everything perfectly fine. I'm thinking that when I did a driver sweep, it deleted more than it should have and damage my windows 7 compatibility with my display drivers. A reformat is not an option at this point as I left my windows 7 CD at home, and I won't be able to get it back till finals are over this week. Any help would be greatly appreciated as this has been EXTREMELY frustrating for the past few weeks. I've done everything I could possibly think of to no avail. If there is anything that I could give you all that would help solve the problem, just let me know and I'll try and get it up there as soon as I can. Thanks for anything guys and girls!
