Windows 7: Atikmpag.sys, dxgkrnl.sys, dxgmms1.sys BSOD after game crash.

Atikmpag.sys, dxgkrnl.sys, dxgmms1.sys BSOD after game crash.

Hey All,

Just finished building my new comp and I've been getting alot of BSOD.
It happens every time i'm playing a game. in fact it happened just before I started this post.

here's what happens.
I'll load a game like Diablo 3, World of Tanks, Skyrim ect. I'll play for about 20 min to an hour, the game will then minimize, and when i try to bring it back up it displays a colored window. I can hear the games sound just fine. I even hear my character moving around. I loose nothing other then the GPU. I then open task manager and end the (now not responding) program. when I reload the game it will load the game menu but the moment i enter the game it Bsod's

Here's what i have tried doing to fix it.
I have uninstalled/reinstalled my graphics drivers including CCC
I uninstalled/reinstalled Direct X 11
I updated my Motherboard Bios to the most recent version (I didn't uninstall the previous ver. as i'm not sure that's needed)
I changed the slot my GPU was plugged into on my MoBo. (interesting note: my top Pcie 16/16/16 3.0 slot wont register my Gpu and i get a VGA led light on my Mobo)

So if anyone can help please do. I have attached my Report below, Thanks

Hiya and welcome to SevenForums!
BugCheck 116, {fffffa8014409010, fffff88004e2dcec, 0, 2}

Unable to load image \SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\atikmpag.sys, Win32 error 0n2
*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for atikmpag.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for atikmpag.sys
Probably caused by : atikmpag.sys ( atikmpag+ccec )
Run Display Driver Uninstaller(DDU)
Make sure you tick the Uninstall C:/AMD and C:/NIVIDA folders while you are in DDU when you are done running DDU install your graphics driver again. This is the guide for DDU: Display Driver Uninstaller: How to use

Remember to remove Catalyst and only install the graphics driver.

If that doesn't work then run Furmark. If the temps goes too high stop the test.

Run sfc /scannow and chkdsk /r.
Install the latest updates from Windows Update.

Do the exact same steps for chkdsk /r but instead of typing in sfc /scannow type chkdsk /r.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Thanks Laith,
After working my way through the list, I'm still having issues of BSOD.
My Furmark test ran great for over 30 min set at 720p with max temps to 66.c, the 1080p test ran my cpu to 68.C.
My gpu showed no signs of having issues. After I got the BSOD i checked my Blue screen view and noticed i also got the ntoskrnl.exe error as well.

I'm going to post a new log for you.
Thanks for helping me.

Have you tried DDU?
Also don't use BlueScreenView, it provides fake info.

Yeah, I ran DDU.
I think i may have found the problem however, i'm going to test my theory today.
I had a program called AMD Gaming Evolved. I had it Set to record all my game footage. well last night i got an error message from it. so I deactivated it's gaming recorder. I'm gonna play today and see if that changed anything.

I'll Give you an update later tonight.
