    I have half a week left before my study starts again, I have time enough for now.
    Right now I'm analysing the dumps as far as I can.
    I'll post the causes with possible solutions as soon as possible, probably within 15 minutes.

    My analyse and possible solutions:
    The cause is your AMD drivers, atikmpdag and atikmdag are AMD drivers, but I wanted to be sure there are no other drivers involved. Unfortunately I could only analyse 1 dump file, the others are giving me a weird error.
    Check your manufacturer for windows 10 compatible driver updates.
    Try to remove the Catalyst Control Center and only install the drivers.

    HP doesn't have drivers for windows 10 yet, they advised me to install them via windows update, which I did and they also lead to BSOD. I've tried uninstalling and installing drivers too many times to count. With all different driver versions I could find. Also tried Lechcatlabs drivers, if you're familliar with those. (They develop drivers for switchable graphic PC's as mine are). Also tried installing the driver which worked before BSOD's started.

    Windows Update drivers are causing more trouble than good, its advised to avoid them.
    I'm not familiair with those drivers you mention.

    Have you tried to remove the Catalyst Control Center and only install the drivers as also suggested?

    Leshcatlabs are recommended drivers for switchable graphic computers, if manufacturer drivers doesn't work. Yes, I did try the suggestion above. With no luck though. Also tried not installing any drivers from windows update, still nothing.

    Please, please, please use the tool again and upload a new zip file.

    Attachment 33972 I think these include recent BSOD's because windows update automatically installed drivers for AMD, before I could "hide" the update.

    1 of the dump files is invalid because its 0KB, please try to upload it again.
    Also, please verify the size of the dumps, they are located at {windows partition}\windows\minidump.

    Because I couldn't find much useful information and a windows driver is blamed please follow these instructions

    BSOD atikmdag.sys, whenever I install AMD driver, Pavilion g6-2055so Diagnostic Test BSOD atikmdag.sys, whenever I install AMD driver, Pavilion g6-2055so

    warning   Warning
    Please make a backup of your important files and get your rescue media or create one.
    Please create a restore point.

    Please read and run driver verifier.

    A windows driver is blamed in a crash, but that usually means that a 3rd party driver is actually the cause.
    Driver verifier stresses your drivers and will crash your pc if any driver fails due to a violation.

    Driver verifier should be performed for a max of 48 hours, or when you have a bluescreen, whatever comes first.

    If driver verifier has found a violation and you can't get back into windows normally, try to boot into safe mode and reset in safe mode driver verifier, or in the troubleshooting options open command prompt and type verifier /reset.

    Note   Note
    Your system will act very sluggishly while driver verifier is enabled, this is normal as your drivers will be being subjected to heavy testing in order to make them crash.

    I tried that before, nothing came up. I would have to install AMD drivers to try it again, and that could take up a lot of my time, which currently I don't have sadly. Im starting to think it's my integrated AMD graphic card which is destroyed. Since this pc has been used heavily for design stuff, which uses much of the resources from the graphic card. I certainly hope not, cause then I would have to wait for winter, to get enough money for a new pc.

    I've tried everything suggested to people with related errors on this forum. So I don't think it can be fixed. Thank you for your time so far. You don't have to keep trying.

    How do I delete the thread?

    Have you tested your GPU?

    Ask one of the moderators.
