Windows 7: How I fixed the ATIKMDAG.SYS BSOD problem for good

How I fixed the ATIKMDAG.SYS BSOD problem for good

I'm pretty sure everybody who had this problem has been frustrated and pissed off to the point where you wanted to throw your graphics card out of the window. I felt like that as not only did I get BSOD, I also got garbled up display followed by either a BSOD or reboot where even the BIOS showed the garbled graphics at the Asus splash screen.

I tried most of the fixes on the net and all of them were useless i.e. removing a memory stick, installing new drivers etc.

One day the PC went all tits up and there was no display even after a reboot, nothing would bring it back, it was f**ked for good, I decided to remove the graphics card and felt it was pretty hot so I ended up removing the HS/Fan.

Long story short I cleared the thermal paste and put on some arctic silver 5, spread an even coat with a credit card and screwed back HS/Fan.

After putting it all back I booted up the PC and still nothing so I left it on to let thermal paste to start working. Woke up the next day and it was all back to life and has been ever since I did about a week ago.

I've ran some benchmarks with 3D Mark and not a single crash.

In conclusion this can also be a heat issue so people should look into replacing thermal paste.
