Windows 10: BSODs at random times atikmdag.sys THREAD STUCK IN DEVICE DRIVER
BSODs at random times atikmdag.sys THREAD STUCK IN DEVICE DRIVER
I have had BSODs for quite a long time now (before Crimson ReLive edition) and they all say THREAD STUCK IN DEVICE DRIVER. (I haven't done anything about it in a long time as I started using it less and my laptop more)
I have taken quite a few steps to try to fix it:
- I am using latest versions of AMD Crimson (16.2.2)
- I have used DDU in recommended modes
- I have cleared and updated motherboard BIOS
- I have turned off the iGPU in BIOS
- I have tried to find atikmdag.sy_ so I can expand it (but it is not found even when using the app, "Everything")
- I have took apart my PC then rebuilt it (paying careful attention to GPU)
- I have run DISM and sfc scannow now (no problems)
- I have run Windows Memory Diagnostic tools (no problems)
- I checked that the firmware of my OCZ ARC 100 240GB SSD was up to date (it was)
I found out that the driver causing problems is atikmdag.sys from using BlueScreenView, these are the common things:
Here is a part list of what is inside my PC:
||Intel Core i7-4790K 4.0GHz Quad-Core Processor
||Cooler Master Nepton 140XL 122.5 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler
||Gigabyte GA-G1.SNIPER Z97 ATX LGA1150 Motherboard
||Kingston HyperX Fury Red 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR3-1866 Memory
||OCZ ARC 100 240GB 2.5" Solid State Drive
||MSI Radeon R9 390 8GB Video Card
||NZXT H440 (Black/Red) ATX Mid Tower Case
||EVGA SuperNOVA GS 650W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply
||Microsoft Windows 10 Pro OEM 64-bit
EDIT: It just had a BSOD again, here's the updated logs: ALVIE-PC-14_01_2017_183923_09.zip

The log files still point to the graphics driver. Did you try DDU to uninstall everything and then just reinstall the driver only?
Have you tried running the memory in a different slot - no reason to believe it is a problem but you never know.
I tried that the first time I used DDU, but I haven't done the driver only the last time I did it. I'll try doing it again.
I'll try running the memory in a different slot and report back
Just saw this:
Stays even after closing and reopening HWMonitor - faulty GPU?
I haven't had a BSOD yet but I was only running the system for a few minutes.
I've done everything you said above, but it happened again:
There is no further information from the crash dump file that I can extract. You could try running a different hardware monitor program (e.g. speccy) to see if you get the same values.
Ok, I'll try that later.
Thanks for helping by the way.
I rolled back to AMD Catalyst 15.11.1 Beta drivers, and then expanded the atikmdag.sy_ file and replaced the old driver in Windows\System32\Drivers
Is it safe to go back to Crimson now?
Also, speccy is not telling me the voltage and HWMonitor is no longer telling it to me either. However, GPU-Z is and it seems to be normal (~0.8V to 1V on idle)
I would give it some more time to verify that you have eliminated the BSOD. IF you try and update and start getting the BSODs again you will know what to do and can then periodically test the newer drivers as they become available.
I'll give it some more time to ensure I don't have BSODs
I bought a computer a year back or so and It has been working perfectly.
Some time ago (cannot remember exactly when), I started getting BSOD crashes.
These crashes can occur whenever, this stretches from browsing facebook all the way...
Here is my computer: A10-7850K 3.7GHz Quad-Core, FBM-02 MicroATX Mini Tower - System Build - PCPartPicker
Occasionally when I'm multitasking on the computer, it will have this error: 99662
I will attach all logs in a compressed file for your...
I posted a thread in the drivers section and someone told me to post here so that is what i am doing. I have attached the logs.
Every so often (once every two or three weeks) it's quite random, normally when playing games. The game normally freezes and then the BSOD occurs.
I am quite good with computers on the basic side of things but all this BSOD solving seems quite...
