Hello, recently due to unknown reasons my brand new gaming PC of a few months was receiving various BSOD error messages and I couldn't quite put my finger on why this happening and tried to get help from the community. Currently I am in a bad place after I got a start up BSOD and decided I was sick of these errors and decided to wipe my drives and reinstall a clean windows. Something went wrong during this process of the drives being cleaned and now my computer can't load Windows and I'm constantly looking at startup screen. I don't know what to do. Please help me. Simple terms.



EDIT: Booted Windows 10 (from disc) again got It working fine downloaded a few (normal applications) then boom get hit with the same BSOD's and now my computer won't start up properly when loading windows it just spins and flashes and nothing happens until eventually another BSOD.

The BSOD was cause by atikmpag.sys driver, the genuine atikmpag.sys file is a software component of ATI Graphics Cards by AMD. The Atikmpag.sys is a kernel driver that installed with ATI Graphics Cards. A kernel driver works directly with the operating system and hence, needs to function in a very stable environment. It looks like you have installed latest version of the graphic card driver if you have then this driver could be buggy you should install previous version of the graphic card driver.


Even reverting back to older drivers I am experiencing this problem when I disable then Windows 10 tries to download updates for AMD. This is getting ridiculous and I'm starting to wish I never went with AMD. Please make me wrong.
