Dumps blame atikmdag.sys, your ATI display drivers

(Do these steps even if you have already reinstalled the ATI drivers)

- Stop any overclocking and reset all BIOS options to default values
- Boot into safe mode with networking
- Uninstall the ATI drivers including Catalyst Control Center
- Use driver sweeper to remove leftover ATI display driver files Guru3D - Driver Sweeper (This step is important)
- Reboot into safe mode with networking
- Install the latest drivers ATI Radeon
- Reboot into normal mode

Code:
BugCheck 3B, {c0000005, fffff88004929817, fffff88008382900, 0}

Probably caused by : atikmdag.sys ( atikmdag+90817 )

I've been having all sorts of problems with the 10.12 drivers. Then why I clean them out and try and go back to 10.11 or 10.10 the installation fails and I'm back to the 10.12. Are you using the CCC2 software?

CCC2 ?
I'am using the catalyst control centre software and i downloaded the 10.12 package with openCL drivers. I haven't got a dxgmms1.sys or a BSOD to indicate it was the driver/video card fault but i have been getting other BSOD's so it may be coz of 10.12

I'll switch over to 10.11 and give that a try.
