    BSOD playing games, or opening high graphic related programs

    Sometimes i get bsod while running games. i don't know whats causing this, i pretty much don't know about bsods.
    I just suspect the reason is there is secondary/primary graphic card on my computer, its called apu.
    Device manager shows two display adapters, one of them "AMD HD 7660G" (my processor is AMD A-10 4600 APU with Radeon HD Graphics).
    Other one "AMD Radeon HD 7700 series" says the device manager. (HD 7730M Chelsea Pro says the sticker on laptop)

    I had this issue both before the format, and after the format. .dmp file is the first bsod after format.
    I will try provide information if you ask anything else than posted.
    I would appreciate any help you could give me. Thanks!
    Note: User Account Control disabled on my computer. If this info helps anything.

    Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known BSOD causer. Uninstall Daemon Tools at first. Then download SPTD standalone installer from, and execute the downloaded file as guided below :

    • Double click to open it.
    • Click this button only:
    • If it is grayed out, as in the picture, there is no more SPTD in your system, and you just close the window.

    A stop ox116 is a display/graphics related BSOD. And your display driver seems to be out of date.

    Update your ATI/AMD display driver to the latest WHQL.
    You can get it from the link in our forum, Latest AMD Catalyst Video Driver for Windows 7, or you may go to AMD Graphics Driver and Software and opt for Automatically Detect and Install the appropriate driver for your card.

    During installation, you may opt for advanced installation, and install the display driver only, not the Catalyst Control Center.

    Are you overclocking? As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings.

    Check if the Power Supply Unit (PSU) supplying adequate power to the computer or not.

    I will try to give full detail just in case another person might run into same problems.
    I was using AMD Vision engine.
    I uninstalled Daemon tools, and confirmed with standalone installer's "uninstall" button.
    I used AMD Clean Uninstall program from AMD website.
    My usb ports stopped working.
    I installed Catalyst 13.9 as graphic and hdmi driver. I found USB drivers in the driver CD that came with my laptop. It was together with AMD Vision engine installer, so i had to deselect others else than USB driver. (13-9_mobility_win7_win8_64_dd_ccc_whql.exe is the name of file what i exactly downloaded from amd website)
    Now my device manager says "AMD HD 7660G+7700M Dual Graphics" instead of "AMD HD 7660G"
    I installed Daemon Tools Lite withy uncheking "SPTD 1.83" option box.

    So far problem is gone. I played 3 different games and two of them was giving BSOD frequently when played in high graphical options. I didn't get any BSOD.

    Seems problem is fixed :) Thank you Arc for solving it!

    No, it is not me. If anything is done here, it is done by you only. I just helped you to get the causes of the issue.
    You are welcome mate. Let us know for any further issue :)
