atikmdag.sys bsod 12.2 drivers - Page 2

post #11 of 37
I'm getting the same problem. Normally happens when idling. Very annoying.

Going to roll back to the previous drivers..

I've now tried 12.2 and the earlier 8.921.5 drivers, but the result is the same. I've tried each card by itself, but the result is the same. I tried installing the 11.12 drivers, but they didn't work on the 7900 cards. I'm now gonna try the 12.3 preview drivers, and hopefully they will produce different results.

I'm using Assassins Creed Revelations to test the drivers, because the problems seems to occur within a little while of playing it. The game will usually just freeze, or the picture at least will freeze, but I can usually still alt tab and exit the game. But when I alt tab from the game the task manager will be in lock up mode. The task manager recovered a while after I exited the game, just as I opened firefox actually, but maybe that's just a coincidence.

Rather than using one game to test, use multiple games and benchmarks to ensure it's not just a game issue with drivers.

These symptoms are weird. I left my pc idling on the desktop over night and when I got up this morning the task manager had locked up again. When I went to bed everything was normal. And I have noticed that when the task manager goes in lockup, the cpu shows 100% cpu usage on one of the cores only. And I then tried to shutdown, and the pc spent about 30 minutes on the shut down screen before it actually shutdown.
It kind of feels similar to running out of system memory; everything goes super slowly, But the sad thing is that I put one of my 6950's in the system last night and installed the old drivers (11.12) that worked flawlessly for me before, but the problem is still there. My uninstall procedure is this; uninstalling amd software, reboot into safemode and then using driver sweeper 3.2.0 to clean the amd drivers and then rebooting normally and installing new driver.

I am open to any suggestions on what to try next. I am running out of ideas now.

Yeah i had a GREY SCREEN OF DEATH (Driver crash) in BF3 Randomly when i was flying jets. 12.3 is a mess of utter crap! Now back to 12.1 (12.2 Preview) Both of em work great no BSOD's no driver Crashes can play BF3 all day. 12.2 pre-certified and onwards have caused so many issues. stickin with the 12.1 band wagon untill AMD fixes this stuff.

I might have found the reason for the freeze issue and it seems that it was because of my ssd's powering off after 20 min. I need to test this further to be sure, but so far I have not had the issue of my pc freezing, and I'm now running my 7970's in crossfire. But if I really have solved the freeze issue, then the irony of all this is that I reinstalled windows because of bsod's, but that when I did, I encountered a new issue because I didn't fix the power options the way I had them before. So hopefully I can now get back to testing the 7970's and finding driver problems wink.gif And if I'm really lucky, then the flood of bsod's I experienced before i reinstalled windows, was because of my sound card and not the 7970's. I'll just have to wait and see.

Enable Driver Verifier to see if it points to anything besides the traditional ati video drivers.

Once you BSOD with Driver Verifier enabled, attach the verifier enabled dump and I'll take a look at it. Driver Verifier simply stresses all 3rd party drivers, and when there's a fault or a crash, it forces a BSOD and gives you a detailed dump based off of what driver caused / forced that crash.

Will do. I have not encountered any crashes or bsod's since I fixed the power settings, but if I do I'll post it here.

I had exactly same problem when I crossfired 5770, I was getting unexpected atikmdag.sys error anytime in Windows 7. I googled and found somewhere that atikmdag.sys error in crossfired GPUs often occur due to two ATI/AMD HD Audio devices in Device Manager. Disabling one of them may solve this problem permanantly. This has solved my problem of atikmdag.sys. This is obviously a driver bug which has not been solved yet.
I don't know if it will work on your 7970, but at least you do can try this. If you see two ATI/AMD HD Audio Device in device manager, disable one of them and restart system and wait to see it it crashes again or not. If it crashes again then do vice verca.
