Ongoing issue, and I apologize in advance if I let my frustrations show.
Synopsis: Games keep crashing in Win 10. Never had any problems with this prior to upgrading to Windows 10. These problems seem to happen primarily in games although I have occasional Firefox crashes as well.
System Specs: This is an older system, but it's been pretty solid otherwise.
Operating System: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
CPU: AMD FX-6100
RAM: 16.0GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 668MHz (9-9-9-24)
Motherboard: ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. M5A97 (Socket 942)
Graphics: 3072MB ATI AMD Radeon HD 7900 Series (specifically, Sapphire 7970)
Errors: None from the games themselves, they just either freeze or close unexpectedly.
From event viewer: Usually as follows:
Exception code: 0xc0000005
Fault offset: 0x00b84a9e
Fault Module Name: atidxx32.dll
--Reinstallation of Windows.
--Games have (of course) been reinstalled following the windows reinstall.
--Full reinstall of AMD drivers (cleaned out the old drivers and remnants for all AMD devices, reinstalled using latest. Specific driver versions don't seem to matter, I've tried multiple).
--Mobo drivers and BIOS up to date (such as it is with an older mobo)
--Extended memory test (8 full passes) show no memory issues.
--SFC shows no issues
--Registry scan shows no issues.
--DxDiag shows no issues
--Power and temp monitoring indicate no issues with either.
This problem has persisted over multiple Windows and game re-installations and updates.
I'm seriously about at wit's end here.
