Windows 7: BSOD everytime i install ATI graphic driver

28 Aug 2017   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
BSOD everytime i install ATI graphic driver

this has been happening since quite long now, i even tried reinstalling windows.
this happens every time i install a driver for my AMD graphics card. be it from the official website, direct download or a 3rd party driver installer app.
when i remove the driver my laptop works fine (though the graphic quality reduces a lot)
and when i install a new driver it works fine for couple of minutes and then gets stuck at BSOD with atikmpag.sys error.
also uploading the details.
Kindly help.

Laptop : Compaq CQ62
Graphic card : AMD HD raedon 5430

Hi Anshu114,

possibly because SP1 is not installed
run this tool, copy/paste the output

note not all of the required files were in the DMP logs run it again please.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

before this OS i was using Windows 10 and that was updated with the latest updates too. but the problem started from there itself.
I read somewhere that windows 10 may not support old hardware and in that suspicion i downgraded to windows 7, but the problem persisted.
so i doubt that there's something wrong with my OS.
There is some problem with my graphic driver which i am not able to resolve.
and I am uploading another fresh zip file as well as a recent DMP file which also is in a rar file.

If the above doesn't fix things, try installing an older version of the video driver. You could even try a Vista driver, if you can't find a Windows 7 driver that will work. Just make sure it is a 64-bit driver, not a 32-bit driver.

Hi Anshu114,

The product key in use is a default key, and cannot activate your system unless an exploit is used

This forum does not support piracy. The rules state that until a genuine product is installed No further help can be provided.
Suggest you re-install the original OS and use the code on the COA sticker.
If the problems persist after this we will gladly help you.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Hi Roy,
This is the Microsoft product key i have with me pasted with my laptop. So i myself wasn't using a pirated version.
The problem is. As i told you, i upgraded to windows 10 long back. And now i don't remember which windows 7 version i was using. I reinstalled windows 7 ultimate. But when i entered my key it said it as invalid for windows 7 ultimate. Surely it wasn't ultimate. And i really don't remember what it was.

Go to, to Support, and enter your serial number. It will tell you exactly what version of Windows was on the computer when you bought it.

In fact, you could probably purchase a set of factory rebuild disks from HP for this computer.
