Windows 7: BSOD (0x00000116) - Atikmpag.sys

BSOD (0x00000116) - Atikmpag.sys

Intro: The computer worked fine till today when I was at my brother, when I had to go I accidently lost the grip on my computer due to a filter. When I got home it worked fine four an hour or two, then suddenly the screen started flickering from side to side and turning blue, black etc. all-in-all graphical errors, and now I can't start it at all without getting the BSOD.
EDIT: It happened the first few times during 3D-usage (Starcraft 2, A video-ad and FM2012)

Now the conclussion I've come to myself is that it might be the GPU that got hit. But I don't wanna waste shitloads of cash for a prober one again if it isn't the problem but perhaps my motherboard. I've searched on google about the problem, and the main points seems to be due to the GPU (Mainly driver problems).

Now my main question is: Could it be my GPU that got hit? Is their anyone out there who had a similar problem?

My specs:
Intel I5-2500K
AMD Radeon HD 6970
ASUS Sabertooth P67
Corsair Vengeance 4GB 1600 MHz

Edit:
It's 64Bit Home Premium - Retail
The hardware and software is approximately 6 months old

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

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.

"It's not a true crash, in the sense that the bluescreen was initiated only because the combination of video driver and video hardware was being unresponsive, and not because of any synchronous processing exception".

Since Vista, the "Timeout Detection and Recovery" (TDR) components of the OS video subsystem have been capable of doing some truly impressive things to try to recover from issues which would have caused earlier OSs like XP to crash.

As a last resort, the TDR subsystem sends the video driver a "please restart yourself now!" command and waits a few seconds.

If there's no response, the OS concludes that the video driver/hardware combo has truly collapsed in a heap, and it fires off that stop 0x116 BSOD.

If playing with video driver versions hasn't helped, make sure the box is not overheating.

Try removing a side panel and aiming a big mains fan straight at the motherboard and GPU.

Run it like that for a few hours or days - long enough to ascertain whether cooler temperatures make a difference.

If so, it might be as simple as dust buildup and subsequently inadequate cooling.

I would download cpu-z and gpu-z (both free) and keep an eye on the video temps
