Windows 7: BSOD as soon as ATI gpu driver is installed.

BSOD as soon as ATI gpu driver is installed.


-Win-7 64 installed and fully updated to latest possible.
-2 distinct gpus in this mobo. 1-Intel HD3000 and 1-ATI 7400.

As soon as the ATI is installed and system restarts both graphic cards work fine. After first boot all subsequently ones will generate a BSOD relating to atikmpag.sys.

Machine works fine if only Intel driver installed.

Things Ive done so far with no positive results:

-DDU and reinstall latest driver from AMD.

a) radeon-software-adrenalin-18.6.1-minimalsetup-180613_web
b) whql-win8.1-win7-catalyst-15.7.1-oct30

-DDU and reinstall using DRP.
-Replaced both atikmdag.sys and atikmpag.sys with fresh clean ones. (no luck)
-Ran dm log collector. (File attached).
-Tried CheckDisk, New Ram modules etc...

Two things to note, Flashplayer will not install with or without gpu drivers returning errors and System classification will not finish running.

Any help is much appreciated.

thanks in advance,

I suspect a conflict with the intel and the ATI. Can you disable the Intel from the BIOS? Also the newest driver version may be buggy. It is always worth trying an older version (or two) if you are having problems with a graphics driver. Just make sure that the driver is completely removed first. You might need to use driver remover. Display Driver Uninstaller Download version
