    Help! BSOD while installing amd Drivers.

    aurorasky

      So I'm trying to install Amd Drivers on my Laptop HP Pavilion G6 2303tx  which had a dedicated Radeon HD 7670m . And everytime I do so it gives me an error with a BSOD.

      The Error is "Video_tdr_failure (atikmpag.sys)"

       

      I've read and Tried all the Possible fixes from the Forum and failed.

      Running Windows 8.1 OS with all updates installed so far.

      Its been 2 days with my error and seems im going nowhere alone so im posting this thread.

      Correct me if there's anything wrong with my post.

          According to your laptop you have a Intel APU installed. The HD7670m is considered to be a legacy Graphics Laptop GPU. Here is the last AMD driver for this Laptop with your GPU : Legacy .

           

          Under Windows 8 in HP Support for your Laptop there is a BIOS Update - F27 Rev A - 9/12/2016 for Intel Processors.

           

          Here is how to install the Discrete Graphics Driver with an Intel APU on your laptop: Laptop graphics update...How to .

           

          When you uninstall the AMD or Intel drivers, Use Windows Uninstall App and then use DDU in safe mode. Delete C:\AMD folder and disconnect the Laptop from the internet. Also make sure your Windows if fully updated via Windows Update.

           

          I would try reinstalling all the Intel and Graphics drivers from HP Support first to see if the issue is fixed. Granted they are five to six years old but they were created to work on your laptop with Windows 8.1

           

          Contact HP Support and see if they have an updated BIOS or Intel Chipset for your laptop. From the drivers for your laptop, your laptop is at least five years old.

              First of all Thanks for replying.

               

              So I followed as per your Instructions. Managed to Install AMD CCC without any BSOD errors.

              Now when I try to open AMD CCC It shows another error

               

              "AMD Catalyst Control Center cannot be started. There are currently no settings that can be configured using AMD Catalyst Control Center."

              Searching the forum for possible fixes.
