Windows 7: BSODs for a week, just when browsing internet. Error atikmdag.sys

BSODs for a week, just when browsing internet. Error atikmdag.sys

Hi all, need a little help!

Third BSOD in a week, no idea what's causing it but it just seems to happen when I'm browsing the internet or possibly streaming videos/music.

I caught one of the error codes on the blue screen, which was "atikmdag.sys".

I do know that AMD catalyst software suite has been requesting an update for a while...which I've ignored. But I can't imagine not updating it is causing this!

I have attached the log from the DM log collector.

Many thanks in advance,

the file you mentioned is your display driver, try updating it and see if the issue persists.

Ok thanks, I've done that now. Fingers crossed.

Are there are instructions on how to read the DM log collector files?
