Hello Wixi.

Code:
17/12/2009 23:24:40    C:\Windows\system32\DRIVERS\atikmdag.sys
Those are the drivers for your graphics card, damn, feels like ancient

So please without further ado, head on over here to update them:
AMD Driver Autodetect

Cheers, Boris

Hi Boris,

I've just run the Autodetect tool and it's given me "amd-catalyst-15.7.1-without-dotnet45-win7-64bit.exe ", which is the same driver as the one that caused a BSOD when I tried to install it about a week ago...

Hi Wixi.

Alright well then obviously I would advise you from not installing that driver, I did however find the 15.7 driver which would be an older one that might do the trick:

Hi Boris,

Thanks for the link. do I need to uninstall anything else before trying this driver out (sine I already uninstalled the ATI Control center software)?

Thanks.

No not really, that is if you of course have uninstalled the previous drivers.

Hi Boris,

Do you mean the "C:\Windows\system32\DRIVERS\atikmdag.sys" driver you mentioned a few posts back? If so, what would be the best way to uninstall this - via device manager?

Thanks.

Hi Wixi.

No no you will never need to go into that folder and delete a driver, when using something like DDU or Revo Uninstaller or even the Programs and Features in Windows, it will delete the file automatically.

Hi Boris,

I'm still a bit confused, as I've looked through Revo and can't find a way to remove any actual drivers with it.

Hi Wixi.

Yes it's a bit tricky to explain it so that even someone with no computer experience understands it, sorry should have considered this.

You'll have to look for either the Catalyst Control Center or Crimson whichever you have installed at the moment, within Revo that is.

So uninstalling CCC/Crimson will remove the driver for your graphics card, a bit tricky.
