Keep a baseline and then a recent Windows 7 backup image to replace reinstall just in case.
for now i will go with MSE but i will have to at some point change to something else i think, maybe eset, i cant bring myself to stay with a windows application like that for too long.

If you are overclocking STOP

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:
Quote:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.
To ensure minidumps are enabled:
Quote:
* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.
I am crashing tons with Catalyst 12.2's on a new machine. Kinda stuck with these drivers since I have a new HD 9750. I have attached my minidumps from the last 2 BSOD from the past hour or so. I have been downloading, but not playing intensive games or anything. I didn't know anyone could read these minidump files, so I appreciate any help.

File Type: zip Minidump.zip (70.0 KB, 9 views)

Have you tried uninstalling CCC and using just the driver? You only need the full bloatware package if you're using special settings (overclocking). Uninstalling it solves a lot of problems.

Well I'm running dual monitors and I need Eyefinity and the like.

You tried the built-in Windows 7 multi-monitor features found by right clicking a blank area of the desktop?

I can extend the desktop - I can't make one wide desktop or spread games across multiple monitors without Eyefinity. I think. Still learning, admittedly...

game drivers are tricky for sure... i just had ANOTHER crash! ill post my minidump

it was the same 3 as always, i was able to hold out 3 days, but in the end it crashed anyways... BSV says it was caused by driver dxgkrnl.sys like last time, and the time before, at adress dxgkrnl.sys+5d000

and which is an all around, not a virus in of itself, good database, checks usb drives and disks, etc? some crashing is alright, but if i reinstall trend it may continue working again, proble, i refuse to use nortan, trend is hard to install, mcafee just sucks in my opinion
I agree and personally avoid Norton, McAfee, Kaspersky.

For myself Esets NOD32 or Eset Smart Security works, is easy to use, and zero infections.
ok so problem is back, apears rather common in ati 12.2 drivers so i tryed the ati 12.2 pre cert drivers to see if that will help at all. people are complaining about how they are making new drivers every month and not being therough with the fixes
