    Atikmpag.sys error when playing games.


      Hello all,


      I have a problem when playing certain games- I get crash caused by atikmpag.sys. Before that I had problem with atikmdag.sys. Sometimes I can play few days without crash, sometimes i get a crash. For example, in gta 4 i get a crash after 2mins.


      GPU is MSI 6850 OC 1GB

      What I tried:

      -SFCSCAN -passed

      -Fresh and updated windows 10 installed

      -Tried with latest catalyst drivers and with beta crimson drivers.
      - Downloaded SEAGATE tool for testing HDD. All short and long tests passed. No bad sectors.

      - GPU tested in Furmark

      -Latest BIOS installed

      - PSU has enough watts and amperage.

      -Temperature of gpu is 75 max when playing games at full load.

      -Crashes happening with a stock CPU and overclocked , no difference.

      -Tried with EXTRACT atikmpag.sy_ method...

      -I run windows memory diagnostic and memorytest from windows, all good.

      -I run Intel burn stress test-system is stable


      When I run driver verifier, I got that 3 drivers are not verified- atikmpag.sys, atikmdag.sys and some atihd...something. Now i get update for Audio Device AMD and its verified. Still first two left unverified.

      Im using Avast antivirus program. Now I will put exclusion for drivers folder, just to be sure.


      Now Im runing driver verifier, still no BSOD.


      Tried with windows drivers via update , still same error.


      I updated again with crimson 16.2.1beta and I dont have 1920x1080 resolution in windows and don't know how to set it in radeon settings. I had same problem with 15.7.1 but I could set it with CCC.


      Im quite desperate, nothing worked so far, should i try with another windows maybe- 8.1 or even 7???
