Re: atikmdag.sys bluescreen and multiple instances of radeon settings

R7 240 here. It’s ridiculous. The problem appeared with Adrenalin edition 17.12.1 and after eight (8) updates, you can’t fix it. An unhandled exception. A random one. It’s ridiculous. I wonder. Have your programmers considered a career change? Something like goat shepherds? Perhaps you should force them to do.

MB: MSI 880GMA-E45

CPU: AMD Phenom II X3 710

Re: atikmdag.sys bluescreen and multiple instances of radeon settings

good luck, remember to use amd uninstaller software to remove all parts of old drivers

Re: atikmdag.sys bluescreen and multiple instances of radeon settings

-Firstly, I'm sorry my bad English.-


I upgraded to Windows 10 version 1803 (Build 17133.1). I checked the driver version of my display card (Radeon R7 240). The new build has automatically installed the Adrenalin version, which it's v18.1.1.  Yes, a few hours later, when I was surfing in Chrome, our lovely BSOD came out. Minidump file.       Old topic for more details.

Don't Microsoft know that atikmdag.sys' version 23.20.150xx.xxxx is causing to BSOD on R7 models? Have they ever tested these models since December, which it was released that month?

The Radeon Display Driver developers can't fix or care to this BSOD issue in version 23.20.150xx.xxxx.
In that case, recommend to Microsoft that don't automatically install v18.1.1 for users with R7 graphics cards. Otherwise, many users will face about tons of BSOD; as a matter of course, they will complaints about Windows 10's v1803.

As a true solution, I need back to the pre-Adrenalin last driver (17.11.4). I looked to different versions of 23.20.x in Microsoft Update Catalog.

(Need click to the 'version' column for the lastest driver). I downloaded and manually installed version 23.20.832.0. Of course, even though Device ID doesn't verify my card, I accept to install the AMD R7 Graphics driver. Conclusion: It's been four days and no BSOD! Furthermore, this driver version's memory usage is much less.

Re: atikmdag.sys bluescreen and multiple instances of radeon settings

thats one of the things i noticed when i did a clean install of my drivers to get the R7 250 to work the microsoft update for amd drivers was around november, december time which seemed odd as AMD are putting out new drivers makes me wonder if ill at some point have to do the same for my RX 460 when i drop it back in my pc

Re: atikmdag.sys bluescreen and multiple instances of radeon settings

I don't know what the performance of v17.11.1 is in games. Can see be from Taskmgr-> GPU that v17.11.4 uses a lot of RAM.

Personally I use the version 23.20.832 that I downloaded from the MS Catalog. This version allows the OpenCL version of the Lentoid HEVC Decoder to work without problems. On the other hand, its' Vulcan version is 1.0.61, not 1.1.

If you want to try the latest version (which it's version 23.20.835), you can download from MS Update Catalog. http://download.windowsupdate.com/c/msdownload/update/driver/drvs/2018/04/31d65d4b-a28a-486b-9c96-72...
