BSOD when updating drivers

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi, I have my system running fine and all, but for some reason I've got issues updating the drivers to most recent versions on my 6870.

Whenever I try I get a BSOD with atikmdag.sys error. I've tried just installing the driver without catalyst software and that doesn't work. Neither does unistalling the drivers rebooting and installing the new ones. Right now I'm using the drivers windows update found for me but I'd like to update them.

May anyone help me?

Boot into safe mode and try updating that way and see how it goes.

+1 for safe mode. Are you sure, to be sure you uninstalled cat control center before new driver in stall.
