    Random BSOD - possible video card driver related?


    **Please ignore or remove this thread, I uploaded the wrong file and am at work, so cannot upload again**
    Sorry for the inconveniance..will update later.



    Hello all, first time, long time.

    I keep getting errors of the BSOD variety lately, and i have not changed anything of interest. The system has been going strong for months now, but the last 2 days while playing Elder Scrolls online, i run into BSODs every 10 minutes. I have uploaded the dumps and am hoping someone can help. I have not noticed it anywhere else in the last few months.

    The errors range anywhere from Kernal Page security failure, to atimkpag.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    i have now tried updating my video card drivers, used a driver cleaning tool AMD supplied. Motherboard is older, but it appears they are as up to date as they can be.

    Short of wiping the OS and starting over, any other ideas?

    No a new installation would not change at all.

    It appears that your mainboard/Bios is probably not windows 8/8.1 compatible, also the asrock site only provides windows 7 drivers.

    You can try to get your system as stable as it can get by updating your drivers to windows 8/8.1 by looking on the manufactures sites AMD- Chipset, Atheros - lan/wan/wireless network etc, Realtek - audio , etc.

    Did you installed AVG a few weeks ago, because AVG can give problems on some windows 8.1. systems.

    P,s.,

    Why did you removed your SF.zip.

    i screwed up sorry for mistake. Looking at it, i thought i uploaded the wrong file. I deleted it from the original post, went to upload again and forgot to save it on my desktop lol. i was running it from remote desktop application and cant access the computer at the moment. Thats my fault. Will reupdate the post later. But thank you!

    I have been running 8.1 flawlessly since launch, its just odd now its giving me problems. I cant even access it at this moment as the computer seems to have crashed while I am at work.
