Windows 7: BSOD - STOP: 0x00000116, atikmpag.sys

10 Nov 2015   #51

Windows 7 Home Premium

No problem. Thanks.

By the way I uninstalled AMD drivers using AMD uninstall utility, restarted and installed the latest drivers from AMD Support site (applicable for Windows 10 by searching manually) and my laptop seems brand new (no more vertical bands on screen too). SFC /SCANNOW which used to get stuck at 28%, no matter what, seems to reach 100% now

Surprisingly the laptop has become super quiet too.

Thanks again Axe.

P.S - Lessons Learnt:

1) Cleaning fan vents make your laptop quiet and cooler
2) Even the slightest air gap between the GPU and the heat sink can lead you to a black screen and a 8 beep code at startup (Even though Dell beep code diagnostics indicate it as a lcd failure).
3) Using the right amount of thermal paste is important. Less or more can lead to problems.
3) Even a single missing screw on the motherboard can lead to electrical short problems
4) Update BIOS, version by version.. most support sites show the latest BIOS versions only and people often jump from a very old version to the latest version which can create problems.
5)Win 7 to Win 10 upgrade may not work even if you turn off your antivirus. You need to uninstall it completely and upgrade in such cases.
6) Forums such as this can easily help you sort out your problems, so think twice before throwing away your laptop/pc and wasting money buying a new one.
7) A month ago, my screen wouldn't turn on, there was no sound, external monitor would get connected only in the first 5 seconds and would show all kinda multicolour lines on the screen (vertical lines of death). But now everything is back to normal and seems brand new. So.. NEVER GIVE UP
