Windows 7: Hd 5970 and multiple displays = bluescreen

Hd 5970 and multiple displays = bluescreen

Hey.

Just got my new computer together and ive encountered a blue screen problem.

everytime i enter a game with catalyst AI on and using more then 1 monitor i get a blue screen.

It works if i take off catalyst AI or remove all monitors

I can run bad company 2 or metro 2033 without catalyst ai on and 3 monitors. But that makes the game lag a little.

So i want to fix it and get catalyst ai on and still use 3 monitors.

My system is as follows:
I7 quad-960 3.2Ghz.
Xfx hd 5970
6gb Dominator dhx+ 1600Mhz
Asus Rampage II Extreme X58
Corsair 750W psu
windows 7 pro 64Bit
X-fi soundcard that came on the Motherboard.

The blue screen code is :

Driver_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

Stop: 0X000000D1 (0X0000000000000148, 0X000000000000000B, 0X0000000000000000, 0XFFFFF88004B54250)

Atipmdag.sys - Adress FFFFF88004B54250 base at FFFFF880048BF000, Datestamp 4b68f9c4


Ive been looking around for a fix and i found loads of others with similiar problems. But no fix. Thats how i found out i had to remove the other 2 monitors to get it working

What Catalyst version do you use currently?

Welcome!

I think you already have your answer: Catalyst is causing the problems. Uninstall it, and only install the drivers.

I guess you'll have to wait for a version of Catalyst that doesn't cause problems.

Hope this helps,

As far as I know, CCC is just a program to change some options and all. I don't think it affects performance any.

Go to AMD ATi website, download both the latest and 1 version before the latest, try both.

edit: make sure you download every hotfix there is for each version of driver

Tried 4 different drivers now. Looks like all of them have this problem.

THe catalyst Ai thing that keeps giving me a blue screen is if the card uses 1 or 2 both cores in Crossfire i think. So i can only use 1 gpu core on the card.

Cat9.12 crossfireX eyefinity Hotfix was the last and only driver that properly supported 3 monitor eyefinity with xfire enabled.

GPU42ATICatalyst9.12Hotfix

It says to use this driver in the Cat10.2 release notes. They havn't said in Cat10.3 if the issues had been resolved or not.

Also, run a complete memtest86+ v4 on your memory to verify full stability. Atipmdag.sys is a memory manager and Driver_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL errors can occur with upper corrupt memory.

If it is memory related can it be something as simple as wrong voltage or wrong timings ?

My memory have 8-8-8-24 on the package. But on Cpu-z it says 8-8-8-20
