Windows 7: BSoD when playing Path of Exiles - Error 0x50

BSoD when playing Path of Exiles - Error 0x50

My computer has been BSoDing recently.
My graphics card is up to date, and I did a fresh install of it using DDU.
It said something about atikmdag.sys on the BSoD screen.

Hello Nyamiya and welcome to 7 forums! :)

Well damn, even though you did use DDU it still seems that there is a problem with atikmdag.sys which is the graphics card driver, it might happen that after that you had used DDU there were still files left from the previous installation and when you now installed it again the faulty/broken files remained in place.

Now because of that you used DDU and it still made things go bananas, I would recommend that you use this tool:

AMD Clean Uninstall Utility

And after that just head on over here to get the latest drivers for your GPU installed:

AMD Drivers

But unfortunately we are not done yet, there was one more BSOD in your upload which pointed to viahduaa.sys which is the driver for VIA High Definition Audio Driver.

I would recommend that you uninstall the audio drivers, reboot, head on over to ASUS Support Download page for your motherboard and download the audio drivers from there:

Cheers, Boris :)
