BIG BSOD PROBLEM *HELP*
Recently I have been getting BSOD's. It used to be just when I play Farcry 3, now it happens when I play shogun II, and will happen when I play who knows what again.


This has also happened randomly, when I am not even in a game at all. Every time it has the same reading from whocrashed:
crash dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\011313-22386-01.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: atikmpag.sys (atikmpag+0x8FD8)
Bugcheck code: 0x116 (0xFFFFFA801D5B5010, 0xFFFFF8800522EFD8, 0x0, 0x2)
Error: VIDEO_TDR_ERROR
file path: C:\Windows\system32\drivers\atikmpag.sys
product: AMD driver
company: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.
description: AMD multi-vendor Miniport Driver
Bug check description: This indicates that an attempt to reset the display driver and recover from a timeout failed.
A third party driver was identified as the probable root cause of this system error. It is suggested you look for an update for the following driver: atikmpag.sys (AMD multi-vendor Miniport Driver, Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.).
Google query: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. VIDEO_TDR_ERROR

I don't know what to do here, Google doesnt help for crap. This is becoming a bigger problem every week. Please help.

Thank you for your time it is very appreciated

After continuesly posting this same thread over and over again in numerous community hubs for all of my games that are related to this problem, I am yet to recieve any aid whatsoever. This is fairly frustrating but if it is some sort of incompetancy from my side I sincerely apologize and request you bear with me. This issue is only getting worse. Worse and worse. I can't play anything now. I cant play Alan Wake I can't Play Shogun II I can't play anything. I can't play a single game that requires even the smallest amount of effort from my graphics AMD driver. I am in desperate need of help as this problem is not going to go away unless I get some help. I refuse to give up. I will keep copy pasting this untill this issue is fixed.

Alot of people have been reporting Blue Screens lately, with varing causes.

In your case, it appears the Graphics Card failed. The Blue Screen says clearly:

Search on the AMD website for an update to your graphics card. There should be a sticker somewhere on the computer casing that tells you what model your graphics card is.

Where should I look if there is no sticker my friend? I really appreciate your help

Then, if that is the case, you would have to dissasemble your computer. I wouldn't reccomend it.

I would try some kind of system specifications viewer. There are plenty available, so just look around.

Alroit Got it: Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000

That's the intergrated graphics. Sure you don't have a GPU?

Oh. Alroit. Is AMD Radeon HD 7970M the right one?
Linginser Jan 17, 2013 @ 5:30pm 
Yes. Go search on the AMD website for an update to the drivers if possible.
