Hello axima !
Since your hardware (APU + R7 265M) supports the latest catalyst drivers (15.7.1 whql - 15.11 beta), you should definitely download and install either of them, using one of the links below:
For windows 10 64bit:
For windows 10 32bit:
Close internet connection first (so as windows update will not interfere).
Make sure you choose the correct one and try clean installing using this guide:
As per guide instructions, be careful not to uninstall the chipset drivers.
Just so you know, letting windows update to automatically download catalyst drivers will also install CCC. Configure your system to not automatically download drivers for your system (Control Panel\System and Security\System, then open "advanced system settings" -> "hardware" tab -> "device installation settings")
And yes, you can safely remove CCC it if you do not use it at all (not recommended though).
Thank you very much for your quick and 100% helpful answer.
I now have Catalyst Control Center in background and drivers (version 15.7.1) installed. Everything has been working perfectly for a day now, so I think it'll continue doing so. I have been watching videos the whole day, which earlier caused BSOD everytime, after 30 seconds or so. Not anymore.
I have a question I meant to ask in the first place:
I described a method for fixing the problem with atikmdag.sys in my first message. Is that method AMD-approved? If it works, it can't be bad, right?
I am glad that you got it covered.
As for your question, i'll just say this: who cares ?
Your PC is yours to mess with and learn something in the process. If it was otherwise, were would all the fun be ?
Why take the long hard road, when there are automated programs to do the job easily for you ?
For the fun of course !!!
I followed the steps that you talked about but while expanding the atimkpag.sy_ file i get an error. It says " Can't open input file atikmpag.sy_."
what to do now
I have the same problem.
Bluescreens with error messages - "atikmdag.sys". Quite frankly its now getting ridiculous. Its clearly a driver problem.
