Windows 7: Atikmg.sys bsod

Hopefully this BSOD is from Catalyst 12.4 being my current driver version. I am upgrading to 12.7 as soon as it is no longer a beta driver.

-My memory is confirmed stable using Memtest86+ for at least 7 full passes (about 7-9 hrs). and win-diagnostic comes up with nothing.

-CPU is prime stable for 12+ hours and never exceeds 50 C as monitored by HWmonitor

-GPU/VGA is 8 hours furmark extreme burn stable, never exceeding 70 C, How would you recommend I OC my VGA through the Bios???

-If you are referring to old dump files for the 0x124 bugcheck then it is probably from Overclocking. As I stated before, no other dump is pertinent as all the most recent ones except 7-1-12 are from known cause. The rest are all much older and have been dealt with.

  1. AODDriver often comes with AMD Overdrive or AMD Vision Engine Control Center/Catalyst Control Center. You probably have a corrupted version from an older install of your drivers/software.

  2. Why are you waiting for 12.7? Why not try 12.6?

  3. Memory can pass diagnostics and still be faulty: Finicky RAM.

  4. I do not recommend overclocking your VGA at all for the time being until you are running stable again. When you do overclock, it should be done with the AMD software, not 3rd party software.

  5. STOP 0x124:

    The 0x124 BugCheck was from your most recent crash (included in the reports you gave us) that occurred June 27th. Do you have a more recent crash than that?

    Your 0x116 was from June 8th, which was even longer ago.

I will uninstall afterburner if necessary. I am trying to recreate the same dump. I have been running computations again with all settings and applications running the same as on 7-1-12. It has been at full load for over 12 hours with no issue, same clocks and voltages, no BSOD. A bit odd.

Should I enable driver verifier?

@Writh: the separate attachment on my second post is the minidump file from 7-1-12.

12.7 because it has performance improvements and 12.4 is stable with the computation software I use.

For the time being lets ignore the RAM, I am pretty good with hardware and I did not fully elucidate all the stability testing that I have done on all pieces of my system. It is the software side that I am not as savvy on.

Ah, okay. I missed the latest .dmp. It is very similar to the other .dmp I have, though, and is also a 0x116 as you said.

Interesting the system is stable. Keep monitoring, and let us know if you get further crashes. You may consider updating to 12.6 at some point to see if it helps.

I will keep her stressing and get back to you guys. I am also going to see what is up with the AOD driver as you mentioned before. Any advice on whether or not to turn on Driver verifier to try to induce a driver crash? Thank you guys for the help.

I'll be in touch,

Driver Verifier probably will not yield anything useful at this time. For now, I think your best bet is to keep trying different graphics card drivers. Your crashes indicate that you likely have a graphics card driver conflict and not another underlying driver problem.

3rd Party Drivers:
Here is a list of your 3rd Party drivers. I have highlighted those that may pose problems in red; you should update them if possible.

RTCore64.sys - If you do insist on continuing to use MSI Afterburner, at least make sure it is up to date. There is an update to the software from 2012.
