Hi

My son has an HP Pavilion s3521.uk, 32 bit running Vista SP 2.0 and OS 6_0_60002.

It has suddenly started to blue screen on startup due to the atikmpag.sys driver. No new hardware or software has been added though he thinks flash may have update earlier in the day.

I can usually get into safe mode but even that seems to be a problem now as the message 'Input not supported' in a grey box moves around the screen. This problem seems to be new - possibly due to my attempts to investigate

I have tried a system restore, uninstalling and reinstalling the graphics driver, installing a new driver from the HP site (said it was not compatible) and using a different screen altogether.

I'm sure there are more techy details you may need but i'm not sure what or how to get at them, particulary as I can no longer see his screen.

Many thanks in advance for any help you can give

Hi. Before this recent blue screen I've encountered, I had posted a thread before, with sgfxk64.sys causing the blue screen. Anyways, I decided for my laptop to be reformatted again and as usual, we need to find drivers for my laptop. Unfortunately, after installing the graphics driver for my system, BSODs appeared after restarting. Any suggestions or fixes that I can do for this issue? Thanks in advance.

How you guys doing, I was sent here from my previous topic to get a deeper look into my problem. Here's the link from my previous topic explaining my problem: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic450555.html/page__pid__2676456#entry2676456

In my previous topic I was being helped to remove some malware that kept coming back all the time after being removed by Malwarebytes. My computer seems to be clean now but I was sent here to get a deeper look into why does my Norton Security Suite doesn't work on safe mode and to find out why am I getting my Blue screens with the error "atikmpag.sys" that's blocking me to log into windows normal mode. Regarding my antivirus, I installed it on another computer and I tried using it in safe mode and it doesn't seem to protect me, it can only do scans but that's it, is this attitude normal from Norton Security Suite on safe mode? And about my Blue screen error, is there a possibility that I have a hidden virus causing my ATI graphic card driver to fail? I can't log into normal mode only safe mode and I get lots of color lines(artifacts) when turning my computer on and then my computer crashes and I get the Blue screen error. Or is there a virus causing me both problems I just mentioned with my antivirus and the blue screen errors? Can someone help me take a deeper look into my computer just to make sure I don't have a virus still hidding? Any help is greatly appretiated, thanks in advance! here... Read more

Hello,

About a few months ago, I built myself my own computer, specifically for gaming. Ever since then, my computer always has errors going on. One of my main concerns that I get is when I am gaming and the BSOD appears. It always has something to do with Atikmap.sys for some reason. I have tried uninstalling amd drivers and reinstalling them. I have even tried newer versions of the drivers. Just recently I wiped my computer clean to try to see if I could fix it, but it didn't work. I have attached a dm log collector above, so you can see whats possibly causing my issues.
(P.S., I'm not sure if this has anything to do with this, but abotu once every five minutes, my screen freezes and I get a message saying, "display driver stopped responding, and has recovered." )

Thank you for all your help!,

A:BSOD When Gaming, possibly caused by atikmpag.sys

Not that it matters but what game are you playing when it bsods? So you kinda figured it out. You have tried all possible drivers and you have tried a clean windows install. Has to be the video card is malfunctioning. That is without looking at the log or anything.
Reseating it might be worth a try. Otherwise, i would start the exchange/rma process.

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.

How you doing guys, I'm worried and very exited to post for the first time on here about my problem. I'm worried because I've been with no working computer for weeks now and I'm hoping to get get some help on here from the experts.

HINT* Before mentioning my problem, I remember installing some windows updates days before the whole problem happened. But ok my problem started on a regular day using the internet I remember I was watching a youtube video and running other open tabs on IE explorer at the same time and eventually my computer crashed giving me a blue screen with the first error "atikmdag.sys". I restarted my computer on normal mode and everything seemed to work fine again. I went back to watching a video on youtube and I recieved a message on my taskbar saying ?Display driver stopped responding and has recovered?. I noticed my video and sound freezing and again my computer crashed giving me the same "atikmdag.sys" error. I then did some research on the error and I came to the conclusion that it was related to my video card. Many people believe it could be multiple different causes that triggers that error(failing video card, power supply, etc.) The first step i took was to update my video drivers aka CCC(Catalyst Control Center)from AMD, but the problem kept coming, and each time it was more often. Eventually I wouldn't get any sound at all, I didn't had to do anything and I would still get the blue screens with the same ... Read more

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.

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...

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

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.

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

I get occasional BSODs when using my computer, there doesn't seem to be a pattern to it, sometimes I get many in a short period of time but sometimes it can be months without one..

I don't know if anyone can spread some light on my situation? It is just a little frustrating to loose any work I am working on!

A:BSOD atikmpag

The problem is apparently display related, as appears form the crash dump.

Code:
BugCheck 116, {86824510, 92832188, 0, 2}

*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for atikmpag.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for atikmpag.sys
Probably caused by : atikmpag.sys ( atikmpag+9188 )

Followup: MachineOwner
---------
It is the 14.12 Omega driver, which is not very stable.
Uninstall the installed display driver using DDU. Then install the CCC 14.4 WHQL only.

When done, Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark. Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark
Take a screenshot of the furmark window before closing it. Upload the screenshot for us. Also let us know if you have experienced any crash/BSOD and/or artifacts during the test.

But the fact is, your installation is counterfeit. It is a Gigabyte retail motherboard ....

Code:
SystemManufacturer = Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd.
SystemProductName = Z68A-D3-B3
Which is having a HP OEM key

Code:
Product ID: 00426-OEM-8992662-00006
It is possible only when teh activation is done using hackers activation exploitations; and the heavy modified codes installed by those tools not only makes the system unstable but also makes any troubleshooting meaningless.

Concentrate on the prima facie display failure, but take necessary actions to rectify the counterfeit installation. Have genuine windows, which will make the computer more stable.

*MY LAPTOP HAS A SWITCHABLE GRAPHICS CARD*

I uninstalled both AMD RADEON HD 7600M Series (Dedicated GPU) & INTEL HD 4000 (Motherboard GPU) fully + the registries. The Laptop recognizes the total available video memory of the 2 GPU's when both of the drivers are in VGA mode. I downloaded & installed the latest version of AMD (15.200.1062.1004) and the latest Intel (10.18.10.4226). (I HAVE TRIED WITH EARLIER VERSIONS OF BOTH BECAUSE I THOUGHT THAT MIGHT BE THE PROBLEM.) I installed the drivers via extracting the .exe files and installing it via device manager. The drivers both installed with no problems. When I enable them both, and restart the laptop, the device boots up until it loads the desktop, then it sometimes either freezes and unfreezes for a couple of times, or freezes then goes to black screen and the blue screen with the "atikmpag.sys" error. I have tried the CMD EXPAND.exe method but still no luck. I have also cleaned the laptop with a strong air pressure gun, (which made the fan noise so much more quiet) but still no luck with the GPU problem. When I disable either one of the 2 drivers, the other one doesn't work (Which means they are linked) but the laptop boots up normally with no problem. The strange thing I have found out is that when I was on Windows 10, the 2 GPU drivers were not linked, which meant I could still use the Intel HD 4000 GPU and have AMD disabled (Which caused no BSOD but weak graphics card) it worked vise-versa too.

A:BSOD, atikmpag.sys

Hello,

You're right, the BSODs did start the day you installed Windows 7. SP1 has not changed the type of BSODs you are getting.

Every dump is the same: a 0x116 bugcheck. See here: STOP 0x116: VIDEO_TDR_ERROR troubleshooting - Windows 7 Forums

Do you have a different graphics card you can try out? If not, see if you can borrow one from a friend or purchase one from a store that will allow you to return it.

It may be worth it to update your graphics drivers to the very latest version: AMD Graphics Drivers & Software

I see the crashes persisted through the October and November versions, but it can't hurt to try.

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

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.

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
? Age of OS installation - have you re-installed the OS? <--- as old as the PC, have not re-installed the OS

Since you've already update the drivers, I would look at your GPU temps to make sure your card isn't overheating. Also make sure it is free of dust buildup. Use a program such as GPU-Z to monitor the temps

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, thekillerz2. There is not much info in your dump files other than


Code:
VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE (116)
Attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed.
Arguments:
Arg1: fffffa800aa13010, Optional pointer to internal TDR recovery context (TDR_RECOVERY_CONTEXT).
Arg2: fffff88003b029d8, The pointer into responsible device driver module (e.g. owner tag).
Arg3: 0000000000000000, Optional error code (NTSTATUS) of the last failed operation.
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.

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.

Please take a look at the attached files and kindly advise. Thank you.

For the past couple of days I have gotten one BSOD a day and it's the same one. Atikmpag.sys is at fault and it says "Attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed".

This happens at totally random points and I do not game on this either. I am usually in Firefox surfing the web when it happens, but I am not doing anything intensive. My graphics drivers probably aren't the latest ones available. I think the current version I have is 13.1 and the latest is 13.9. I wanted to see what you guys say before updating (if I need to), though. I don't think it is the drivers because I have had these drivers installed for a while and only now is the issue arising. I have not made any system modifications or installed any new programs recently.

? OS - Windows 7 x64
? Windows 7 was the first and only OS installed
OEM
? I have had this for at least 4 years
? Only reinstalled Windows once I got the machine to get rid of bloatware

? AMD P320 2.10 Ghz
? ATI Radeon 4200 HD
? MotherBoard - not sure - stock that came with laptop
? Power Supply - stock that came with laptop

? System Manufacturer - Compaq
? Exact model number (if laptop, check label on bottom) - CQ62-225NR

Hi,

All of the attached DMP files are of the VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE (116) bug check.

The basic definition of a 0x116 bugcheck is: This indicates that an attempt to reset the display driver and recover from a timeout failed. So, let me now explain what VIDEO_TDR_ERROR means. First off, TDR is an acronym for 'Timeout Detection and Recovery'. Timeout Detection and Recovery was introduced in Vista and carried over to Windows 7. Rather than putting exactly what Timeout Detection and Recovery does exactly, I'll just directly quote the MSDN article!

Quote:




Timeout detection: The GPU scheduler, which is part of the DirectX graphics kernel subsystem (Dxgkrnl.sys), detects that the GPU is taking more than the permitted amount of time to execute a particular task. The GPU scheduler then tries to preempt this particular task. The preempt operation has a "wait" timeout, which is the actual TDR timeout. This step is thus the timeout detection phase of the process. The default timeout period in Windows Vista and later operating systems is 2 seconds. If the GPU cannot complete or preempt the current task within the TDR timeout period, the operating system diagnoses that the GPU is frozen.
To prevent timeout detection from occurring, hardware vendors should ensure that graphics operations (that is, DMA buffer completion) take no more than 2 seconds in end-user scenarios such as productivity and game play.

3 GIG DDR 2 Ram

Pretty much stuck and I've tried a lot to get this working. I recently upgraded to windows 7 through the academic program and knew that my 2 GIG of ram would run windows 7 but I wanted to get more. About 2 weeks ago I ordered 4 GIG of ram that was compatible with my current system, but when I installed the ram and booted it up just after the splash screen I get a ATIKMPAG.sys error saying that the video card drivers have failed to load. I have tested the memory and it is fine I've ran the memory in another system and it worked fine there as well. It seems any time I exceed 3 GIG of memory I get that BSOD. I've pretty much isolated it down to just being the ATI drivers, since I can go into safe mode uninstall the drivers reboot and windows into windows with the 6 GIG of memory installed, but when I have to restart even with fresh ATI drivers I get the same BSOD.

Any help would be appreciated in trying to fix this, it just seems really odd to me that something as simple as more ram is causing this issue.

Update the display driver at first. It is too old to work stably there. Download Drivers

Report us for any further BSOD after doing it.

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:
