ASUS OC R9 290x - BSOD Win 8.1 0xa0000001 atikmdag.sys - Page 2

Yeah. I think the NF200. Along my travels to fix the problem, I ran across someone who had an NF200 chip, but it was only hooked up to one of his PCIe slots. When he put it in the non-NF200 slot, the BSOD's went away.

My board isnt the same, so no go for me.

I have a board with NF200. It's an Asus Maximus IV Extreme P67 B3 Rev. It's not just ATI cards though. I had some issues running a GTX 680 4gb SLI setup. It was also BSOD issues. It stopped doing it once I changed the active dp to dvi adapter to a passive one. So far so good, no crashing or anything. I do have some weird wake up issues with Windows 8.1 Pro. I spend half my time in Linux and it never crashes there.

If I find a good price on a Haswell, I might upgrade but until then, I'm sticking with what I have.

I don't use adapters. Tried both single and dual DVI cables though, made no difference. frown.gif

Just in case someone else stumbles on this. I have had multiple RMA's for 290x and 290's. NF200 chip is culprit. When the card is not in one of those slots, everything works as it should.

What a crock.... mad.gif

I have been struggling for months to fix nearly the same issue but I have found what the problem was.

At first I thought it was the card but had it returned 2 times to the store I bought it from (so I tried 3 cards). Then tried the card in my friends system and found it worked perfectly fine. Ruled out it wasn't the card. So I thought maybe it was the motherboard. I changed to an Asus Sabertooth Z77 board. Still got the same problem. I then realized the PCI controller was on the CPU. I had another i7 awaiting my wife's rebuild so I switched CPU's. The problem was no longer present. Basically what I had was a dying processor.

If the problem persists, it can be a bad processor. Just wanted to post my findings I case people still want to blame ATI/AMD.

I've just put pt1 bios on and had computer running 36 hours or so straight with no bsod crash ... Too early to say its fixed , but steady as she goes for now

Sounds promising! I've been running stable since the moment i changed the BIOS. Not a single BSOD! biggrin.gif
Fingers crossed! thumb.gif

It working out for you? I'm having the same issue but using an MSI R9 290X. Think i could use the same drivers?

Still no bsod for me ... And now I can over clock to 1150 as can put more volts in smile.gif .. I haven't pushed past 1.4v as not wired right now

Pt1 bios has made a huge difference to my cards' stability and performance .. Computer room being noticeably warmer is the main drawback

Hi CriticalHit, is it possible for you to answer me some questions? Has your motherboard the NF200? If so, after flashing PT1 BIOS, it has some kind of issues? Thanks.
