    Quick Question Regarding ATIKMPAG.SYS


    Hi guys. Just had a bit of a kerfuffle on my PC. Just wanted to double check if its something to be concerned about as normally everything works as it should.

    I was running a game in windowed mode (normally works fine) whilst watching a media file via VLC and watching another video in Mozille via Flash and the game in itself went all white (no BSOD) but i saw this in Reliability History:

    That is your graphics driver.

    Ah ok. I am going to revert back to my previous version of driver to see if that changes anything. Unless anyone else knows what issue could be?

    If it keeps doing it, that's what I would try myself.

    I have rolled back to 21-Jul-15 driver. Can't understand why now it is playing up though. Been on Windows 10 for a while now and its been fine. Unless a Windows update conflicts with it somehow.

    I imagine if its like my GPU is on the way out i'd be getting a lot more issues?

    It could be something else causing your driver to react or the the driver is getting the blame for something else that is the actual problem.

    Troubleshooting different things is part of solving it, if it keeps doing it with this other driver you may want to look at one of the other things you were doing, the game, the browser, VLC.

    You're welcome. :)

    Hopefully that's all it takes but it could get deep if things keep freezing on you.

    If it keeps happening you may want to run this BSOD tool just to give people some better info to work with.
