Hi All,

Quick one, dont know if anyone can help with this one, got my new OC Extreme P170EM with the ATI HD 7970M 2GB in. Only had it a month and have been out the country so only just got round to installing all my software on it.

Recently started getting a BSOD which is referencing atikmpag.sys. Anyone got any ideas as to sorting this, is it a driver update to the new ones which sort out the enduro issue to fix it?

It is not just high performance graphics work that is causing the issue, as I first thought, with overheating etc... It has just done it on me while using Visual Studio 2010?

I am not running it inappropriately, it is sat on me, on a laptop cooler which is on a solid base to sort out air issues.

Really need this for a programming job I have got on and to RMA it will mean a big setback for the project and would like the money for xmas shopping so if it is a driver update then thats great, just dont want to do something like that and it not be the issue to find I make problem worse.

Cheers in advance for your help
Will

I would try this:

1. Uninstall the ATI diver (should reboot)

2. Uninstall the HD 4000 driver (should reboot)

3. Re-install the chipset driver (should reboot)

4. Re-install the HD 4000 driver (should reboot)

5. Re-install the ATI driver (should reboot)

Cooling P170EM

See if that helps.

Regards.
