Windows 7: BSOD playing TF2, error 0x000000d1 (amdk8.sys)

BSOD playing TF2, error 0x000000d1 (amdk8.sys)

Hi, I am getting a BSOD when playing TF2 (Team Fortress 2).

Here is a screenshot of all the dump files that have been created most times when I play. The viewing program is BlueScreenView by Nirsoft. It will happen randomly in the middle of playing, sometime 1 hour into playtime, or 5 minutes in.

Attached is a ZIP containing the files gathered by the SF Diagnostic Tool.


Operating System
Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit SP1
AMD Athlon 64 X2 5600+
Windsor 90nm Technology
2.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR2 (5-5-5-18)
BIOSTAR Group A780L (CPU 1)
HP w1907 (1440x900@60Hz)
ATI Radeon 3000 Graphics (Biostar Microtech Int'l)
Hard Drives
298GB Western Digital WDC WD3200AAJS-00L7A0 ATA Device (SATA)
Optical Drives
AMD High Definition Audio Device

I have updated my graphics drivers using AMD Auto update tool, as well as doing it manually. Still no dice.
Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance.

Update it from Realtek

Some hardware failures are also possible. There is some hints. So take the following tests.

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.

Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.

Thank you for your reply, I will disable those programs right now.

As for the driver, I was not aware that the Network driver was crashing, all event viewers pointed to the amdk8.sys, which is the CPU processor driver so I've been trying to update that, and I had updated all my graphics drivers as well thinking that those were at fault.

As for the hardware failure, I have run memtest before for many passes (more than 10) and it has always gone through with no memory failures detected, but I will run that one again, as well as the two stress tests.
