18 Feb 2016   #1

Win 7 64bit
BSOD THREAD_STUCK_IN_DEVICE_DRIVER ATI (dxgkrnl.sys + hal.dll + atikm.


Please I am fighting with this problem more than 1 year... I got random freezes (99% just in IDLE time, or when i am just browsing via browser)
Never happened in games. Never. (playing LoL, CS:GO , or some MMORPGs)

CPU: [email protected] + Gelid Tranq. v2,
MB: ASUS M5A97 Evo R2.0
SoundCard: Creative Audigy
RAM: 2x4GB Kingston HyperX CL9 1600MHz CL 9/9/9/27
GPU: ATI HD 7790 (Stock)
HDD : Samsung Evo840 120GB
PSU: Zalman ZM-500LX (500W)

What i already tried: Reinstalled whole System WIN7 64Bit, reinstalled ATI HD7790 Drivers. tried install minimalistic Drivers / Beta drivers.
I set BIOS on default settings, without any OC: CPU, RAM, GPU.

Thanks for your help

You are running an Acer Product ID (PID) on an ASUS board.
This makes your installation counterfeit.
Troubleshooting a counterfeit installation is useless as it is not known what has been modified to your system.
A counterfeit installation contains heavily modified code which causes the system to behave in unexpected ways.
For this reason, analyzing counterfeit systems is unreliable and most analysts won't try it.
OS Configuration:          Standalone Workstation
OS Build Type:             Multiprocessor Free
Registered Owner:          Michal
Registered Organization:   
Product ID:                00426-OEM-8992662-00006 <-- Acer PID on ASUS board
Original Install Date:     20. 11. 2015, 14:54:22
System Boot Time:          18. 2. 2016, 7:45:10
System Manufacturer:       To be filled by O.E.M.
I recommend to install a genuine copy of Windows.
If, after you have installed a genuine copy of Windows, you still get BSOD's we'll be happy to assist you.

Upgrading may make the problem worse!

I will do a clean install. Is it a problem? Why do you think that?

Upgrading gives problems to the new OS and creates new problems while upgrading.
