Windows 7: BSOD randomly x116 atikmpag.sys

20 Dec 2013   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x86
BSOD randomly x116 atikmpag.sys

this is amazingly bsod. when playing game, watching movie, even browsing
i have HD 4650 DDR 2 sometimes keep bsod in 1 day.
magically not bsod in 4-5 days. and bsod again.
once bsod appear it will likely bsod in next 2-3 hours
the problem is AMD driver .

today , i got bsod at 4 pm. i uninstall complete the driver (12.4)
and i install 13.9 the latest in web AMD. done installing
restart.. and boot up to desktop. 4 sec later bsod.
so i think this is must driver faulty. i uninstall again.
and installing (12.4b) its ok.. not bsod... until the last. it bsod again when browsing (-+ 8pm)

please help me, i dunno what to do now.. i planned for format computer next sunday if still not solve

PS: ignore the first bsod, IRQL not less equal. because my old c2d E7500 is broke. i changed to pentium E2160 now. but not formatting. so i guess maybe the win 7 fault too

Hi blackstrike. Stop 0x116 BSODs are display/graphics related.

It seems to be an old computer.
BiosVersion = 080012 
BiosReleaseDate = 05/14/2008
If there is any possible BIOS update, apply it. PCCHIPS Web Site

How old the ATI Radeon HD 4600 Series GPU is? Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

The display driver is old, too.

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.

Let us know the results.
