Hello there fellow AMD users!

 

So a couple of minutes ago, I got another BSOD, like I did 2 days ago, with the cause of "atikmdag.sys".

 

The first time I stumbled upon the BSOD a few weeks ago, I just took the latest "atikmdag.sy_" file out of the AMD drivers and expanded it via Window's expand.exe into a "atikmdag.sys" and put it into system32/drivers.

 

That worked for a few weeks till 2 days ago where it happened again, I did the same fix again and today it happened again.

 

As told by a friend, I checked my HDD with S.M.A.R.T. but no errors there, at least not to my eye.

 

Running on WIndows 7 64-bit.

HDD is a WD Blue 1TB.

 

If you need any more details, I'll be happy to post them here.

 

Best Regards
Striipy
