    Famous Atikmdag.sys BSOD. Bugcheck code: 0x50


    I've had this BSOD before, but then got the computer magically back to working order. I also did a thread on that one and have tried to use the fix that I provided for other people on that forum. The BSOD I have now is 100% identical to the last one I had (the one I wrote about at the other forum). I am a busy music producer and have been without my DAW (the software we use to make music) for about 3 weeks now and I am getting kinda sick of this BSOD, so I'll provide as much information as possible so you can get a picture of the BSOD. First of all, the Dump file (I'll paste it under) Checked with WhoCrashed.

    My GPU is "AMD Radeon HD 5870 in Crossfire.

    BSOD:

    Conclusion


    6 crash dumps have been found and analyzed. A third party driver has been identified to be causing system crashes on your computer. It is strongly suggested that you check for updates for these drivers on their company websites. Click on the links below to search with Google for updates for these drivers:

    atikmdag.sys (ATI Radeon Kernel Mode Driver, Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.)

    If no updates for these drivers are available, try searching with Google on the names of these drivers in combination the errors that have been reported for these drivers and include the brand and model name of your computer as well in the query. This often yields interesting results from discussions from users who have been experiencing similar problems.


    Read the topic general suggestions for troubleshooting system crashes for more information.

    Note that it's not always possible to state with certainty whether a reported driver is responsible for crashing your system or that the root cause is in another module. Nonetheless it's suggested you look for updates for the products that these drivers belong to and regularly visit Windows update or enable automatic updates for Windows. In case a piece of malfunctioning hardware is causing trouble, a search with Google on the bug check errors together with the model name and brand of your computer may help you investigate this further.





    That's the DUMP check.

    I will also link the last thread I made to help build a better picture.
    Link to the previous thread.


    Many people are talking about replacing the Atikmdag,sys file in system32/drivers with a new processed atikmdag.sys file you make with a atikmdag.sy_ file out of the AMD folders. Like this (link)

    But that didn't work. I also tried to not install the catalyst control center because several people told that was the root problem, without it fixing anything for me
    Many also says Try different drivers (I've tried like 6 different releases and betas)

    I got so desperate I backed up my production stuff and re'installed windows on the computer, without even that fixing it.

    Hardware?
    I don't think the graphic cards are faulty because sometimes when I restart the computer after another try at re-installing new drivers, the computer sometimes finishes a windows update at startup, from there I can see the cards are operation perfecly because of the high quality compared to the normal windows stock graphics. Then when the update is finished the BSOD pops up again and breaks my belief in fixing this problem. Normally the BSOD just pops up right after the Windows startup screen.

    So I wanna know if it's possible to edit the BOOT to manipulate the computer to BOOT the way it would if it was updating like I described above. Or just fix my problem in particular. I need to make the computer work for a couple of months more (I've had it since 2009, and thinks it's okay if it fails, but not just right now when I need it the most) So I can make some more money on music to build a desktop for just producing.

    Thanks for your time! - Elias.

    I may just edit the thread whenever I can think of something more to add.

    I tried to install the software you mentioned but got "Could not initialize ZoomGPU. FurMark startup failed"
    I googled the problem and found that No solutions are available for this specific issue yet.
    Link to the problem.So I am not sure what to do right now. But thanks for the reply, keep em' coming!

    I actually found the software just before you posted this and started the test for 10 minutes ago, I got a hardware monitor to watch the temps, is it okay to have the temp of one core up to 88* celsius and the other one around 81* celsius? When should I stop the test? Keep in mind that I have Logitech N700 Fan cooler under the laptop and the surface doesn't feel too warm.

    Anything over 80 degrees is too hot. Your CPU is overheating. Stop the test.

    When was the last time you checked your thermal paste level?

    Are you just asking in general? It's been a looong time! My temps are normally around 28-35*C. That's what they are right now when I've stopped the stress test.

    Asking in general because of the CPU temps. Could you upload zipped minidmp files here, so I could analyse them more thoroughly.
    Thanks.
