Atikmpag.sys BSOD playing WoW

Q: Atikmpag.sys BSOD playing WoW

A week ago I was playing World of Warcraft, something I've done often over the past 4 years.
Never had a problem up until now, as my PC suddenly froze and I received a BSOD.
I've tried various solutions, but none of them have worked so far.
Another thing about my graphics card is that the fans are very loud, since June last year.
I don't know why, or if my card is failing, but I thought I'd mention it.
Again, other than the noise, it didn't cause me any problems.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Around the 17th of March I was playing Smite, joined a match and about half way through it, I received a freeze then a BSOD. This continued to happen randomly when I would play a smite match, ranging from every 1 to 6 matches, could happen near the beginning or in the middle of the game. So I wouldn't ruin more games for others I attempted to fix the problem myself, looking up that I had to update my GPU drivers (which I do now have) or uninstall them to let my pc auto install the suitable one (This ended up with my PC or Radeon hardware detector not detecting the GPU so I had to system restore). I also tried cleaning out my PC rig with a duster to see if, my bad PC hygiene, had caused heating problems but it had no affect. I have used malware-bytes to detect malware and viruses but all that was quarantined seems to have had no affect.

I tried these solutions that I see everywhere when I search, but obviously they didn't work. So instead of finding a solution I attempted to find more symptoms, I found that within the blue screen it mentions atikmpag.sys, I see that my PC problem reports tell me that I have a lot of Windows shutting down and Video hardware errors (With the BCC codes BCC116 and BCC117 respectivly). I also attempted to see if I would gain the BSOD by testing on more strenuous games and didn't gain any BSOD whilst playing Dark Souls 2 and Batman Arkham Knight, thus so far I have concluded that this BSOD seems Smite specific, though this could do with some f...

Hello and welcome to Sevenforums!

The problem is caused by your graphics driver. Run Display Driver Uninstaller(DDU)
Make sure you tick the Uninstall C:/AMD and C:/NIVIDA folders while you are in DDU when you are done running DDU install your graphics driver again and you should be good to go! This is the guide for DDU: Drivers - Clean Left over Files after Uninstalling

Remember to remove Catalyst and only install the graphics driver.

Hi everybody!

Ever since I got my new HIS HD6870 IceQ-X Turbo, while playing or even just watching a video on youtube, I keep getting either:
- Freeze/Black Screen then "Display driver amdkmdap stopped responding and has successfully recovered" making applications crash.

- Freeze/Audio Loop/BSOD 116 telling me that my sweet atikmpag.sys betrayed me once again.

What I tried:

- Ran a memory test with built-in Windows 7 memory check for more than 6 passes and didn't get errors.

- Tried booting with only one memory stick (both of them)

- Tried every versions of ATI drivers.

- Re-installed Windows several times.

- Disabling any kind of OC.

- Increasing PCI-E bus frequency from 100mhz to 103mhz and this brought longer stability but it's definitely not resolving the trouble. (Bootlooping at 105 BTW)

- Tried graphic card at a friend's for 45mins and it didn't crash. But not sure the test was long enough.

- Put back my HD4870 and it ran pretty fine except that I got that BSOD once after playing for a while on Battlefield 3. So I don't know what to think.

EDIT: Also nothing is overheating, everything under 65?C on load and I updated BIOS to last version.

Well I'm running out of ideas so please HELP!!!!

My 3 last .dmp are attached..

Thanks in advance for your replies.

Hello, sorry to bother you.

I'm having BSODs when playing Rocket League. They were fairly random but have lately become rather consistent with starting a match.

Now I have read the thread on posting procedure however the program it requests to run returns an error "Unable to complete the operation""access is denied" on the zipping file to desktop function, and the zip file created my account does not have permission to access(nor can I seem to give permissions).

I have exhausted my knowledge and Googlefu on this issue so I'm turning to you for help.

Since I cannot seem to run the required program hopefully a list of my failed fixes will help;
-Reinstalled ATI drivers.
-Dxdiag reports no issues.
-Memtest reports no issues.
-GPU/CPU running on stock values.
-All updates to windows and other drivers are applied.
-Verified game files.
I have no issues with other games so I fear I am a lost cause until Rocket League releases an update.

Since around 2 months ago I started having my first BSOD and it was just once so I haven't really thought it should be fixxed. I could never be more wrong :P. So I went ahead and didn't do anything about it until now, since this week I get almost every day 4-6 times a BSOD while playing Counter strike global offensive. No other game I get BSOD except this one. After the PC crashed it will give me the error of atikmpag.sys not sure what it meant, tried to google it and tried the fixxes but none worked so far.

I have had this issue for a while but only recently did I realise that it has resulted in a BSOD, before I when the display had gone I had just rebooted the machine. However after leaving it for a minute or two it BSOD'd and I finally got to see an error to start debugging this problem!

This error occurs seemingly randomly when I am playing games on my EyeFinity setup (Three Monitors), sometimes I can play a game solidly for 5 hours with no problem. or I can start a game and get this error almost instantly. This has lead me to believe that it isn't an issue with a specific game as it happens with pretty much all of them.

The BSOD is STOP 0x00000116 atikmpag.sys

Hello all,

I'm encountering BSOD playing SWTOR for a few days. This started to happen after update of my Graphic Driver (I installed the latest release, AMD crymson 15.11). The game worked fine before this install and then, system started BSOD while playing, every crash mentionned atikmpag.sys file.

I uninstalled the 15.11 driver, rebooted my PC, downloaded on AMD web site another driver more compatible with my GC (AMD 15.7.1 Driver), installed this new driver => still crash

I uninstalled the 15.7.1 driver, verified that all files where effectively deleted (and so atikmpag.sys was), rebooted the computer, reinstalled the 15.7.1 driver => still crash

I then uninstalled the game, supressing all config files for it, and reinstalled it with the latest install program => still crash, and happen closer in time.

Before reinstalling the game, crashes occurs about 30-50min playing, now it's about 5-6mins.

I verified physically my machine, no noticable dust, vents running good, my GC was lightly OC since now and all worked fine with the game.

Dump of my computer are with this thread.

Thanks for your help!

A:BSOD playing SWTOR, error on atikmpag.sys driver

Update of the topic.

It seems that catalyst driver 15.11 altered the GC fan functionnality. I forced OC on the GC with GC fan manually set to 72%, game ran fine.

So, I de-reinstalled another time the Catalyst 15.7 driver, using in time the AMD Cleanup Utility before reinstall (wich use removed some files, non-deleted with the Catalyst deinstall self-process), and then all worked fine once again, without using OC at all.

So, i would recommend users not to install the last AMD catalyst driver if they have AMD HD 6800 series GC (or equivalent), but rather check the last available driver really compatible.

Subject closed.

Hi Hextall27.

You are having stop 0x116 BSODs (display/graphics related) irrespective of the display driver version. So apparently the reason is not the driver.

Are you overclocking? As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings.

Check if the Power Supply Unit (PSU) supplying adequate power to the computer or not.
eXtreme Power Supply Calculator
Also let us know the wattage of your PSU.

Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.

BSOD when playing videos, error 0x00000116, atikmpag.sys

Laptop model: HP laptop Pavilion Dv6-6003tx
Laptop specs: Contact HP Support and Customer Service | HP? Support

Happens within 10mins to 2hrs of online video streaming for example using YouTube. I haven't tried playing an offline video from other sources to see if it happens.
It use to happen when i play games like Call of Duty and League of Legends and at the same time i would video stream and usually it happens when i tab over to the video streaming before the full reformatting was done.

Most of the time it would start off with "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered".
Than the BSOD happens after.

I would say as of now playing games would not really trigger this issue. It is more of when videos are streaming from websites. And sometimes switching back from full screen to the small windowed section or the other way around on the website would also trigger "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered" and the BSOD errors.

This has been persisting for awhile even after having a fully reformatted windows on all drives.
All drivers and windows updates has been done with HP Support Assistant and official windows 7 online updates

Hi been getting frequent random BSODs whilst playing world of tanks. Each time the problems seems to be caused by atikmpag.sys. I have tried uninstalling and installing the most recent drivers but got another BSOD as soon as I tried to play the game again.

A:BSOD whilst playing World of Tanks caused by atikmpag.sys

All of the dumps are 0x116 VIDEO_TDR_ERROR (Timeout Detection Recovery) which can be down to the driver, heat, power to the card, the PCI slot it's in or a bad card among other things. Your driver isn't the most recent from what I can see so we'll try that first.

Download the latest driver from here and save it to your desktop. Download DDU and follow Display Driver Uninstaller: How to use to remove all traces of your current driver. Reboot and install the downloaded driver.

Hello everybody.

I have had these BSOD almost since I installed Seven.
I used WINDBG myself to interprete those minidumps, and that helped me to search on the web.

While searching on the web, I saw lots of people complaining about similar issues with similar dlls involved, but I didn't found how to solve this.

I completely uninstalled ATI software, and reinstalled the standalone display driver, but the problem is still here.

All my drivers are up to date, including those of the graphic card.

I enabled memory remap yesterday, but it didn't change anything (I suspect a RAM-related issue, but I'm not sure).

I attached the files you asked for. The perfmon report is in French, so feel free to let me know if you need a translation of some part or another detail.

Thanks by advance for your response.

Hello world,

I am experiencing an annoying BSOD, error 0x116 with the atikmpag,sys file suspected (took a photo of the screen, attached it here). At first, i only had them once per week, or less, only while playing big, demanding games (i.e. Skyrim, Star citizen) about a month ago. Now, they occur even while watching a youtube video. It happens like this : I'm watching the video, everythings fine. Then, the sounds starts to flicker, one second there's sound, the other there's none. And, depending on how demanding it is, the BSOD happens 5 to 20 seconds after.

I recently reset my computer, because i wanted to do one anyway (and i hoped it would fix the BSOD) but right when i finish installing all the drivers and software, i watched a youtube video, and I BSOD instantly, on a clean windows installation.

I ran a MemTest to see if its the memory, fortunately it is not. After some research i found out it's about my GPU and the drivers, i hope it's the drivers and not the card itself.

Now i driver sweeped the drivers, running on the cpu graphics (not overclocked anymore), and deactivated my secondary monitor. I thought that i could at least watch some multimedia on that until i fixed it, but right then, while writing this, my music on youtube started flickering again. I closed the tab promptly.

P.S. Sorry if some files are in french, just ask and i'll try to translate as best as i can with my mediocre english. Also, sorry for the non-perfect english

Long story short, I've been having driver crashes quite often lately, where my screen will freeze, then go black, and then come back to normal. Whole process takes like 10-20 seconds.
On top of that I'm getting a BSOD atleast once a day, very very annoying. I think windows live messenger triggers it, but I can't get it fixed.

I've tried downloading the latest drivers for my videocard, but that didn't work. I'm currently running this driver:

Here's the rest of the information you guys need, I hope to hear from you soon.
? OS - Vista/ Windows 7 ? Windows 7
? x86 (32-bit) or x64 ? 64 bit
? What was original installed OS on system? None, self-built
? Is the OS an OEM version (came pre-installed on system) or full retail version (YOU purchased it from retailer)? Pirated OEM with a legit serial from my personal MSDN account.
? Age of system (hardware) year and a half, ram is 3-4 months old
? Age of OS installation - have you re-installed the OS? I'd say a month, maybe 2 max since I re-installed Windows

? CPU intel core i5-750
? Video Card (XFX) ATI HD 4850
? MotherBoard ASRock P55DE3
? Power Supply - brand & wattage OCZ500SXS (500W)

? System Manufacturer Me, myself and I
? Exact model number (if laptop, check label on bottom) :)

Quote:




"It's not a true crash, in the sense that the bluescreen was initiated only because the combination of video driver and video hardware was being unresponsive, and not because of any synchronous processing exception".

Since Vista, the "Timeout Detection and Recovery" (TDR) components of the OS video subsystem have been capable of doing some truly impressive things to try to recover from issues which would have caused earlier OSs like XP to crash.

As a last resort, the TDR subsystem sends the video driver a "please restart yourself now!" command and waits a few seconds.

If there's no response, the OS concludes that the video driver/hardware combo has truly collapsed in a heap, and it fires off that stop 0x116 BSOD.

If playing with video driver versions hasn't helped, make sure the box is not overheating.

Try removing a side panel and aiming a big mains fan straight at the motherboard and GPU.

Run it like that for a few hours or days - long enough to ascertain whether cooler temperatures make a difference.

If so, it might be as simple as dust buildup and subsequently inadequate cooling.

I would download cpu-z and gpu-z (both free) and keep an eye on the video temps

Hello forum!

I'm having a critical fault in my system, but I can't pinpoint >what< causes it exactly.

When stressing the graphics card it tends to crash out and attempts to reset the display driver (fails to BSOD). My first idea of course was overheating, but the temps seems to be in order, not just with the video card but with everything else (no idea about psu though). The pc is clean, dust-free, new thermal paste has been applied this month.

The bsods seems to be getting more frequent (for example I can play for 30 min, then it bsods, I attempt to play again boom another bsod in 5 minutes or less).

Naturally I've tried to reinstall drivers, old drivers, newest drivers, with and without catalyst, memtest, fresh windows, updated bios, older bios. I'm frequently using ccleaner, have active virus protection and not overclocking anything. I've also tried eliminating daemon tools, but it didn't help.

Here are my specs atm:
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit SP1
Proc: Intel Pentium 4 CPU 3.00 GHz
Mem: 2.0 Gb RAM
GPU: ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT
HDD: Maxtor 6B200P0 ATA Device
PSU was a Codegen 400W "HardwareMurderer" before, lately replaced by a 350W spare noname PSU (I can't afford anything better right now :( )

...and here are the pics and the technicals:

Hi,
I have been experiencing systematic BSODs when playing videos using either XBMC 13.2, PowerDVD 13 or WMP.
I have and AMD APU A10 6700T on an ASUS F2A85-V-Pro mobo.

This had all been running perfectly stable for months until, I believe, I updated the BIOS of the mobo. Unfortunately I did not register from which BIOS version I upgraded. I do know it was a version that was from before the support for the newer A10 APUs was supported (whence my decision to upgrade). Now it's v6407.

I have uninstalled Catalyst and re-installed it but to no avail.

The symptoms are as follows:
I play a video (can be DVD, BluRay, mkv file, avi... whatever). After a while, can be within minutes or after an hour, the player will crash. If I launch the movie again I get the BSOD. Sometimes, the BSOD occurs immediately after the player crashes or when the movie is interrupted by me stopping or pausing it, or by a windows program bringing up some pop-up message.

WhoCrashed gives the following dump log every time:

Good Day people at Tech Support Forum.

I have a BSOD problem which I need some help on. My PC is about 3 months old and the BSOD problem is as old as my PC is.

Brief Description of problem:
PC tend to crash randomly. The screen hangs, then turn black (for about 2s) then the BSOD shows up. It crashed when I was watching some movies (the screen showed BSOD, but the audio of the movie continued), playing non graphic intensive scene from Warcraft III DoTA, and even watching videos on youtube.

Diagnostics done:
Ran the Prime95 stress test for over 6h without crashing
Ran 3DMarkVantage and 3DMark06 and completed the benchmark testing without any problems.

hence the conclusion that it is not a hardware issue, but a software issue (do correct me if im wrong. thx!)
suspected culprit: atikmpag.sys

Attempted Remedies:
Removal of Daemon Tools and Norton 360 (replaced it temporarily with Microsoft Security Essentials)
Reinstalling the CCC with the latest one available
Using Drivesweeper to clean the older drivers followed by installing the graphics card driver (without CCC)

PC in use:
? OS - Windows 7 64bit
? x86 (32-bit) or x64 ? <--- i think this would be x64 right? since im using 64 bit
? What was original installed OS on system? <--- none? it was custom built

Arg4: 0000000000000002, Optional internal context dependent data.
The code you are getting (116) is always a graphics card/driver problem. This particular one is a TDR error, meaning the drivers crashed but did not recover in time. It is pretty common with Laptops with switchable graphics. This is the driver you are using now.

Well only when i play games i take bsod, it freezes sometimes if i press ctrl+alt+del then it maybe unfreeze and sometimes it shows a message display driver stopped and restored or something like that.

i checked the guide here: STOP 0x116: VIDEO_TDR_ERROR troubleshooting

Done the system file checker the reset pagefile, of course i have tried many versions of Ati drivers (well dunno but now it wont even open CCC but i guess thats not the main problem), i have re-installed many times the direct-x files, i dont overclock.

My pc specs are:
Phenom II x4 955
MSI 790fx-GD70
ATI radeon hd 5770 (sapphire vapor-x) X2 in cf
Ram:Geil dont remember name at 2100+ but i run them low cause i dont overclock for now, i trieed a friends ram and same error appeared so i guess its not ram issue.
PSU dont remmember brand but its about 1000W, if u need i can find more about it and edit the topic.

Thnx in advance for ur help.

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP
We could also use some system information, which you can get easily by running msinfo32.
To do that go to start>run>type msinfo32>enter

When it is finished running go to file>save>name it and upload to us here.
You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:





Quote:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.



To ensure minidumps are enabled:





Quote:
* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\M... Read more

Hi guys. My system's been acting up, like I mentioned in this other thread: Monitor switches off randomly

i was planning to get a new card but just havent gotten down to it. Today i was just using Internet Explorer when a BSOD happened, and the error code was as specified in the thread title. I'm using Windows 7 Professional 64-bit, AMD Athlon II X4 620 2.6Ghz, a 2-year old Powercolor Ati Radeon HD4870, an 8-year old Philips 107T CRT monitor, 4GB RAM, 600W power supply.

Not all information was included in the report. No .dmp files were present, making it very difficult to debug the crashes. Please follow the instructions again.

Recently got this computer off newegg, everythings working fine, but on some games (L4D2, Dead Frontier, Desktop Dungeons) my screen shows a bunch of blue and purple boxes, And then BSOD's saying display driver failed to recover from timeout.

It seems like it crashes on OpenGL games, Ive unistalled, reinstalled the drivers, tried previous drivers, but to no anvil.

You can find my system specs in my profile, Any help at all is appreciated, Since i cant play my favorite games :/

If you need any more information just tell me, I havent really had to deal with this type of stuff before, so if you need a crash dump report youre gonna have to tell me how to do that.


If you wish to have others assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder. The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
* Briefly describe the problem history and circumstances in the same post. Somebody will attend to your query as soon as possible.

Hi guys,

I have a brand new Pavilion dv6 quad-core 64-bit laptop I purchased about 6 months ago ( end of last year ). I have not installed any new OS on it.

I am having a BSOD relating to atikmpag.sys
It's happended about 7 times since I got the laptop.
I have no idea what this is from so this is what I came to you folks

I followed the sticky post on how to post a thread about this problem, I hope I did everything. If you need anything from me please ask. I want to fix this problem!

Thanks.

A:BSOD about atikmpag.sys

Quote:
"It's not a true crash, in the sense that the bluescreen was initiated only because the combination of video driver and video hardware was being unresponsive, and not because of any synchronous processing exception".

Since Vista, the "Timeout Detection and Recovery" (TDR) components of the OS video subsystem have been capable of doing some truly impressive things to try to recover from issues which would have caused earlier OSs like XP to crash.

As a last resort, the TDR subsystem sends the video driver a "please restart yourself now!" command and waits a few seconds.

If there's no response, the OS concludes that the video driver/hardware combo has truly collapsed in a heap, and it fires off that stop 0x116 BSOD.

If playing with video driver versions hasn't helped, make sure the box is not overheating.

Try removing a side panel and aiming a big mains fan straight at the motherboard and GPU.

Run it like that for a few hours or days - long enough to ascertain whether cooler temperatures make a difference.

If so, it might be as simple as dust buildup and subsequently inadequate cooling.

I would download cpu-z and gpu-z (both free) and keep an eye on the video temps

You have a DELL PID on a Toshiba machine, this means your installation is counterfeit.
Code:
Host Name: PEDJA-PC
OS Name: Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate
OS Version: 6.1.7600 N/A Build 7600
OS Manufacturer: Microsoft Corporation
OS Configuration: Standalone Workstation
OS Build Type: Multiprocessor Free
Registered Owner: Pedja
Registered Organization:
Product ID: 00426-OEM-8992662-00400 ---> DELL PID
Original Install Date: 28.1.2015, 5:46:10
System Boot Time: 21.6.2015, 14:46:14
System Manufacturer: TOSHIBA
System Model: Satellite C660
System Type: x64-based PC
Counterfeit installations such as yours can contain heavily modified code that can cause the installation to behave it unexpected ways. Analysing BSODs and determining their causes on these sorts of installations is completely unreliable, and for this reason most analysts won't attempt it.

My recommendation is to install a genuine copy of Windows 7. This will minimise the problems you are experiencing and make subsequent diagnosis of BSODs far more reliable. Once you are running a genuine Windows 7 installation and are still experiencing BSODs, upload your new logs we will be happy to help you solve them.

Hello!
Recently i bought new PC
i5 4460
msi B85m-G43
2x4GB G-skill 1600 cl7 RAM
AMD R9 270x MSi gaming
CM G550m PSU

It was like 2 months ago and there were no issues whatsoever. Games ran flawlessly etc
5 days ago i decided i want to play some Witcher 2 so i downloaded it from Steam and wanted to play. In the beginning of playing (in loading) Witcher 2 crashed (not responding) so i turned it off and turn again without any issue. I played in like 20minutes to see is its working or has to be re-installed or something.
When i closed the game and went to desktop some weird arifacts went all over my screen and after few seconds it BSOD.
From that time i cant play/benchmark anything bcos of those BSOD's.. Today i ran 1hour loop of unigne valley at max settings (99% GPU usage) but the temperature was steady 65C. When i quit benchmark and went to desktop it BSOD again.
Temperatures of stress testing:
CPU: 52C
GPU: 65C
I uploaded dmp file so you can see what is that.
PLEASE HELP ME

Edit:
I forgot to mention that i checked my GPU drivers and tried 3 of them (latest, latest beta,last) and no fix appeared, still got BSOD
I checked other SSD, installed whole system, drivers and ungine valley. It was pure new system and it BSOD the same as last time.

A:atikmpag.sys BSOD

If it's persistent beyond reinstalling of Windows, then either the drivers you are using for the graphics card are bad, or (most likely) the graphics card itself is bad.

Issue from your crashdumps each show TDR failure, in which the graphics drivers failed to respond to DirectX for a certain period of time and therefore the PC reset the drivers and the card. This has to happen several times in a short time frame before the system decides to give up and crash. Most likely in this case your graphics drivers are not responding because its waiting on your GPU, which should not happen. It would mean your GPU has buggered out.

Check temps for your GPU, as well as voltages using HWInfo (though voltage readouts are more accurate on your BIOS if it has em). If you have your GPU overclocked, reset to factory defaults. Check GPU fan to confirm it's clean and that it's running properly. If all this doesn't help, then most likely your GPU just puttered out.
