Windows 7: AtiHDMI.sys BSoD'ing randomly on sounds

20 Sep 2009   #1

Windows 7 RTM
AtiHDMI.sys BSoD'ing randomly on sounds

Hey guys (and girls),
I've recently put my new system together and since then i've been experiencing several Blue Screen of Deaths.
First i thought it was on the video driver, as windows crashed alot when alt-tabbing back into games, but my most recent crash was when i clicked on " next song" in windows media player. I've read a bit on it on the net, and it seems that updating the sounddriver should fix it, but as the crashes are random i'd like some extra advice so that i'm sure i'm not missing anything.

The BSoD tells me that it was ATIHDMI.sys that crashed
My system:
Intel i7 920 not overclocked
6 gb OCZ ddr3 1600 mhz ram
Ati HD4890 1gb ddr5
2x Samsung 1TB spinpoint in raid0
Foxconn Flamingblade motherboard
Hansol 17 inc crt display and a 42 inch full HD LG tv connected trough HDMI

Running Win7 RTM fully updated

I've zipped the Dumps in this post

Thanks alot in advance!

When windows crashes it takes atleast 1 or 2 restarts before Intel Matrix Storage Manager sees my Raid partitions as valid boots

Im going to do a quick look at them all to see if they have anything in comman.
