ATI Radeon 4650 HD = BSOD?

I keep getting this problem whenever I play any games, mostly World of Warcraft. I always get the BSOD! It's the most annoying thing in the world. I just upgraded to 7 yesterday and I downloaded the new drivers from their site.
most I could before it reset.
Stop:0x0000008E

atikmdag.sys Adress at 9397E1F1 base at 93806000

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Try uninstalling the ATI drivers/CCC etc and let Windows install the driver and let me know what happens.

First the atikmdag.sys file is a video file usually a driver problem. We could help you a lot more if you were to goto c:\windows\minidump and find the bsod dump file (*.dmp) and zip it and upload it so we could take a look at it

Thanks

I'm assuming the files in that folder are hidden? I don't see anything when I click it. I don't see where I can modify the folder options where I can make it so I can view hidden folders.

Edit1: I googled it and found how to :P Dunno why I'm so off today.
Edit2:The folder is still empty.
Edit3: How do I make it so Windows installs the drivers?

That's the best I could do since that folder was empty.

Here is a bunch of dump files from the same video card. This issues occures when recovering from sleep mode. I am able to log in but then shortly after the video card stops responding. Using the latest ATI Microsoft Certified video driver. Hope this information will help solve Mikes problem as well

BSOD after driver update

i have pretty much the same issue here. i get bluescreens (sometimes after clicking OK in the windows troubleshooting dialog) when using 3D apps or games. i believe it started with the ati driver update 10.3 but i tried older drivers as well and it doesnt change anythting now. i guessed i needed a clean uninstall and even installed ffterwards with anti virus deactivated and firewall turned off. but i still get bluescreens. i attach my dumpfiles and hope someone has a solution for me.

Just a suggestion. You can try optimized drivers. I did and they work, but I got no improvement so I just went back to regulars. Software Releases - NGOHQ.com

They could help, worth a shot.

That driver is for XP, which i don't have an issue with.
A few more notes, that might be interesting:
- my mainboard doesn't allow 4 GB Ram, which is why only 2.5 GB are used (and displayed)
- I have three partitions, and Windows7 is not on the primary one (since XP is)
- I get two different STOP messages, the above mentioned 8E one, and a 50 STOP.
- Dxgmms1.sys was mentioned a few times on the blue screen
- I tried the hint wioth the Windows driver setup, which happens everytime i uninstall drivers anyway. There is no way to prevent Windows 7 from installing drivers is there?

I am very disappointed by the lack of QA on ATI's side. but i guess that's China.

Than you for anyone who can help me though. THere are a lot of people out there who have trouble with this. Not only the 4650 but also 48xx series and general ATI support under Windows 7.... please help us!

Thank you and apologies for my desperation.

UPDATE: I tried several approaches and my result is: All seems fine once you use Driversweeper after uninstalling the ATI driver (and CCC) and then installing an older version of te ATI driver. Everything after 9.12 wouldn't work for me. so i DL'd the 9.12 CCC and after sweeping all my drivers and rebooting the system (then uninstalling the automatically installed Windows drivers and aborting the Windows Update check) i installed the 9.12 pack. Another reboot and all works a treat!

I am happy (for the moment). So after all, it was the usual ATI problem: the uninstall doesnt work properly.

Other half-related question: Driversweeper finds nVidia Chipset drivers... not sure i have any nvidia hardware in my system... how can i find out? Off topic... so only if you know the answer anyway... the answer is: driversweeper finds drivers for other OS's as well. so disregard.

EDIT2: My problem s not solved unfortunately. The szstem now takes a lot longer till it crashes, which is a bit of progress but after about an hour or two it still happens. no heat problems accourding to CCC overdrive info. I am slowly thinkin that i should probablz replace mz mainboard. have one here that might work. will try on the weekend.

Also.... no answers? at all? i don't awnt to bump this thread since that is bad nettiquette..
