BSOD R9 270X atikmdag.sys
Hi guys, i'm having a problem when I play dota 2 screen freezes and the sound continues to play like you're running or it gives the error atikmdag.sys,someone know how to fix? please help me!

I've tried formatting, change driver, replacing windows, and also tried to install the driver without Catalyst Control Center.

obs: I play skyrim without errors, and i try to reduce the graphics of dota to low and continue the error, and i'm using the latest driver from AMD.

I5 3470 3.2 Ghz
Gigabyte b75m-d3h
Vengeance 2x4GB Mem Pro
Sapphire R9 270x 2gb Dual OC
Senety GSP650-SM

I noticed you didn't mention verifying the file cache for DOTA2 via steam :3

That's an error with the AMD drivers, sounds like the card is overheating, set the fans to about 60% (or more) with CCC.

Some games are more sensitive to hardware problems then others.

Since youve tried formatting and changing drivers its most likely a hardware issue, my guess would be its possible that one of your RAM sticks may be faulty.

Keep an eye on your GPUs temps, but with modern GPUs they tend to downclock themselves or the display driver crashes rather then having a straight up blue screen.

Try Windows Memory Diagnostic n go from there.

Just noticed this is kind of an old thread that was revived..
