Uninstalled drivers, now BSOD

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
This is at stock setting by the way so do go blaming an overclock, its not there.

Anyways, I just uninstalled CCC 10.4 before I updated CCC to the newest version and after restart I got the BSOD. Thinking it was a random error from my overclock, I set everything back to stock and I got the same BSOD two more times. Should I plug in my back up card and go with the flow or try a reinstall of Windows 7?

hi,

i recon that you need to get the 11.1 version of the driver. the exact same thing happened to me. just reinstall the driver if it still occurs install the older version of the driver. if that still doesnt work reinstall windows and use the driver that worked last.

hope i helped,
your welcome

A lot of people have been having issues with installing 11.1 over a previous version of CCC, me as well. I went from 10.12 > 11.1 and after the install over 10.12 my display driver started crashing frequently.

I fixed it by uninstalling CCC completely in safe mode via Device Manager and using Driver Sweeper to clean out old ATi entries. Note that people have bad experiences with Driver Sweeper so use it at your own risk. I use it because I've personally never had issues.

So if you're uncomfortable just uninstall CCC, reboot, and reinstall the latest version, don't worry about Driver Sweeper.

Try to boot into the win7 vga mode ( f8 during startup blah blah blah....). See if you can uninstall the latest driver from there. Then boot normally and install a driver that you know is safe.

I uninstalled 10.4 and after restart got the BSOD. Didn't install any software, only uninstalled. Anyways, like I said, I am on my nVidia back up card and my PC is working fine. So somehow the card went martyr on me.

Boot into vga mode as I mentioned before and install the latest driver 11.1a.
Now boot up normally and you will be fine. to boot into vga mode press f8 during boot up. you must use your ati card while doing this.

I've never had a BSOD from a driver uninstall ever. Maybe tomorrow I will try it but for now I am going to just use my nVidia card.

I noticed that this was never resolved and I encountered this issue yesterday. This site has the most recent thread I can find that is related. To start with, here's the specs:

Windows 7 Professional (64 bit, purchased OEM)
ASUS Crosshair IV Formula AM3 AMD 890FX
AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition Thuban 3.2GHz (1090T)
G.SKILL Ripjaws 4GB DDR3 1600
2 x OCZ Vertex 2 90GB SSD (in RAID)
ATI Radeon HD 3770 X2

All the hardware tests fine, and there have been no prior hardware conflicts. I know the video card is old, but it had no prior issues either. Built this box in December and hadn't even gotten around to playing with OC settings - so that's unrelated.

When playing the RIFT beta, the game crashed and hard-locked. Research led to updating the application profile pack, so I did this and retried the game. After 10 minutes or so it crashed again and hit the bsod, citing atikmdag.sys. The fix that seemed to work for others was uninstalling the ATI drivers, booting into safe mode, clearing out remaining driver files (including any copies of the atikmdag.sys) and reinstalling the drivers clean.

So, I did the "express uninstall" of the ATI software and went to boot into Safe mode. But now, when Windows tries to boot, it flashes up the quickest blue screen ever (no time to read it to see whether it's a legit bsod) and reboots the machine. This now happens every time Windows tries to boot.

The further difficulty I am having is that I am unable to boot windows in ANY mode because of this problem, including any iteration of Safe mode. Additionally, When I boot using the Windows disk to run repair utilities or try a system restore, no operating system is listed, and when it asks me to load drivers for my hard disks, I cannot find the correct sysinfo file to make it see the raided SSDs (although it lets me browse its files in the Load Driver dialog... and of course the BIOS settings haven't changed, still shows up right). So that option is out. Also, there's no onboard video.

Any ideas? I was thinking of plugging the SSDs into another box and removing the files while they're loaded as a secondary drive, if those files are indeed what is causing the problem...

Thanks for any feedback,

Nom
