HD4870x2 BSOD Verry Often. :(

Hello all, I am new to this so here goes. Have had Win 7 running well the past 6 months (Rc Version), How ever as of Yesterday I have had BSOD over 10 times, Tried running the Repair option. No good, Just back to BSOD again on reboot.Grrr. When I finaly got a restore point up running it says somthing about new hardware. Hmmm,. None new, so I tried to update ATi Cat drivers from 9.7 to 9.9 and my screen is all frizzed out with odd colours. So whent to 9.10, and still the same. Did a restore again and running ok with the old 9.7. But I go to play Borderlands and after 10 minutes... BSOD again. After windows does its check and repair atempt I am on this Vissious Circle of the BSOD over and over again. Would I be better off doing a Fresh Instal of win-7 64bit?? As windows keeps saying there is an error with the O.S.

Many Thanks. Rikko75

(As windows keeps saying there is an error with the O.S) This is a pretty good indicator. Since you have already tried several different drivers for your card. Posting a screen shot of your event veiwer would also help in diagnosing the problem as well as the mini dump file.C:/windows/minidump in search box put it in a zip or rar file and post it. Thanks and welcome to seven forums. Fabe

Posting a screen shot of your event viewer would also help in diagnosing the problem as well as the mini dump file.C:/windows/mindump in search box put it in a zip or rar file and post it.

Just a small correction, should be C:/windows/minidump

I don't want to be picky, just to make sure Rikko75 got it working.

Have a nice day

Type event in the search box, you'll see event viewer right click on it and you'll see a bunch of options, critical,error warning ect. Expand the critical one and snip it. Then post This will tell what critical events have taken place. A Preferred Method of Uploading/Posting Screen Shots I can only get you this far someone else who has a better inderstanding of them will have to take a look.Fabe

What driver version are you using? You might also want to make sure your chipset drivers and bios version are up to date.

The information in this article and this one may help you out.

It seems as though a service is involved. What you can do it type system information into the start menu search box. When the screen opens, use ctrl+s on it. Winrar or zip the saved file and then attach to a post. I have a good eye for services that can cause this, so I'll have a look.

If you want to start troubleshooting on your own, completely uninstall your antivirus utility from the system.
