BSOD while Streaming Video, error 0x0000007e atikmdag.sys

Q: BSOD while Streaming Video, error 0x0000007e atikmdag.sys

My computer will blue screen only while streaming video, usually YouTube. I can browse the web and play games just fine. I haven't intentionally made any changes to my computer. It just started doing this a couple weeks ago. I can only watch maybe 2-3 short videos before it crashes. Here is my Info:

windows version: Windows 7 Service Pack 1, 6.1, build: 7601
windows dir: C:\Windows
Hardware: h8-1214, Hewlett-Packard, Gigabyte, 2AC8
CPU: AuthenticAMD AMD FX(tm)-6100 Six-Core Processor AMD586, level: 21
6 logical processors, active mask: 63
RAM: 10501382144 total

On Tue 7/28/2015 1:16:17 PM GMT your computer crashed
crash dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\072815-101135-01.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: atikmdag.sys (atikmdag+0xC48BB)
Bugcheck code: 0x1000007E (0xFFFFFFFFC0000005, 0xFFFFF880150F68BB, 0xFFFFF88004263228, 0xFFFFF88004262A80)

Preferred Solution: BSOD while Streaming Video, error 0x0000007e atikmdag.sys

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: BSOD while Streaming Video, error 0x0000007e atikmdag.sys

Your dumps are blaming your ATI driver. It's old and needs updating, check your vendor's support page for the latest ATI driver offered and update it.

Uninstall DAEMONTools Lite, a proven cause of BSODs.

1. Uninstall DAEMONTools Lite via Add/Remove Programs.
2. Download the SPTD standalone installer and perform the following steps.
3. Double click the executable to open it.
4. Click the button shown below.

If the button it is grayed out as shown in the image, there is no more SPTD installation on your system and you can just close the window.

My computer BSODs whilst doing several things (but at very random moments), most frequently when watching YouTube videos or videos of any other kind, also when doing things which use a lot of CPU power like editing a video with Adobe Premier Pro, etc. My computer can crash 10 minutes after booting, 1 hour after booting, 2 hours after booting, etc... seemingly at random.

The following message comes up when my computer BSODs:
"Technical information:

I have been having some issues with my laptop (Dell XPS L502x) crashing intermittently lately. Sometimes it crashes when I turn it on from sleep mode. Other times, it can work fine for a period and then crashes randomly. I have tried to update all drivers as recommended on the Dell driver update page but then today, as I was streaming video content with my laptop connected to my TV via HDMI, I got the BSOD.

As per the posting instructions, I downloaded the dm log collector. But that had problems and closed and automatically removed the dump/log files. I ran it again and managed to make a copy of the folder (SFdebugFiles) before it was automatically deleted again by the program. I have attached a .rar of that folder below.

In addition, I have included a CPU-Z report of my system spec, if that helps.

Thanks for your help

A:BSOD while streaming video, error 0x0000009F

System crashing randomly on startup; sometimes it works fine but other times it will begin to load up and then power itself off. Then the next time, it loads normally again.

Also I should have mentioned that I recently upgraded the ram to 16gb (2x 8gb). I thought initially that these problems may be related to this but I've done Dell system scans and the memory passes with no errors. Also as you can see from my system, it is recognising the full 16gb so I assume that all are installed correctly.

If anyone can give me some help, that would be great.

Stop 0x124 is a hardware error.... if you are overclocking try resetting your processor to standard settings and see if that helps ... if you continue to get BSOD here are some more things you may want to consider ..

Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try

A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint. Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress.
Generic "Stop 0x124" Troubleshooting Strategy:
1) Ensure that none of the hardware components are overclocked. Hardware that is driven beyond its design specifications - by overclocking - can malfunction in unpredictable ways.

2) Ensure that the machine is adequately cooled. If there is any doubt, open up the side of the PC case (be mindful of any relevant warranty conditions!) and point a mains fan squarely at the motherboard. That will rule out most (lack of) cooling issues.

3) Update all hardware-related drivers: video, sound, RAID (if any), NIC... anything that interacts with a piece of hardware. It is good practice to run the latest drivers anyway.

4) Update the motherboard BIOS according to the manufacturer's instructions. Their website should provide detailed instructions as to the brand and model-specific procedure.

5) Rarely, bugs in the OS may cause "... Read more

Hey guys, my computer blue screens approximately 30-45 minutes into gameplay of Battlefield 3.

My first card was Power Color ATI 7870. Blue screened as mentioned above.

Second card was the same model (RMA). It blue screened as the first.

Third card is the same scenario as card 2

Fourth card, they gave me a brand new ATI R9 270. Very nice card, a little faster, still blue screens.

These are the drivers I have installed/uninstalled for all of the cards:
14.12 (Omaga)
15.7 (Currently running driver)

I am starting to think that it is actually not the card. Could you guys help me out? Im kind of getting lost into what to do next. Also, can anything be said about changing the bios of my card? I heard people talking about it on the internet and am not sure if it is such a good idea.

I have been getting a BSOD error saying that atikdmag.sys had some error. This usually occurs while browsing files using explorer.

Things i have tried:
tried general system clean up, (spy/bloat/mal)ware (spybot S&D) and Antivirus (avast) sweeps
Uninstalled ati drivers, no error received while they were uninstalled.
installed JUST the latest video driver as was recommended in this thread, error came back.

computer was up and running fine for 3+ months before the BSOD started happening. It happens randomly while im browsing files, but there is at least one folder i can go to that always re-creates the issue to test... it usually happens when there are video files in the folder (i suspect it may be a thumbnail generation issue?).

required BSOD zip attached, thanks in advance for any help.

I have a problem with my new GPU. Few months ago I've bought Gigabyte Radeon R9 270x 2GB OC and installed it in my computer. Then I've noticed strange black squares appearing randomly in my browser [Mozilla Firefox] while I'm on websites like tumblr or Facebok. I sent GPU back for repair but they said everything was fine.
Then I got 2 BSODs. Both displaying atikmdag.sys as error. They both happened while I was playing League of Legends though I'm not sure it has anything to do with it.
I've tried numerous versions of GPU drivers but none helped. I still get those black squares while browsing. They dont appear in video games or while I work in programmes like 3ds max.
I've attached a picture of those squares and a DM Log I've done. If someone knows how to fix this I will be very grateful.

There are two crash dumps included in the zip. One is of 18/10/14 and the other is of 15/01/15. Both of them happened with 14.4 WHQL installed only.

So we cannot be sure that it is the behavior there irrespective of the driver version installed. Try Download AMD Catalyst 14.9 WHQL Driver ... see how it goes. Let us see any BSOD with this driver installed (not suggesting you to get the latest 14.12, intentionally).

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, make it sure that the hardware acceleration is turned off in Firefox. Firefox GPU Hardware Acceleration - Turn On or Off

I've been having BSOD's for approximately 2 months. Currently averaging 2 or 3 a week

I've spent the last month trying to resolve the issue and I've tried multiple fixes which have been suggested via various forums / threads - Found some unrelated errors and fixed those but the Atikmdag.sys errors still continue (though the frequency of BSOD's appears to have slowed down somewhat (was originally daily -)

Rather than going through everything that I've done, thought it would be better to post my BSOD report and start again from scratch.

Laptop Config :
Ideapad Y560
Intel i3 350M
ATI Radeon HD 5730 (Dual switchable model with Intel Card)

Been playing DOTA2 on my Y560 for more than 2 years, few days back all of a sudden a BSOD occurred while i was ALT+Tabbing from game (first occurrence). After this, every 10+(approx) mins in game, a BSOD occurs.
To my knowledge there weren't any windows update, BIOS/Driver update, haven't done in awhile. Have turned everything to manual update.

During the BSOD, it shows it happened either because of atikmdag.sys/atikmpag.sys

All the threads available were asking to update to latest drivers, but the laptop is a dual graphic card switchable model, those drivers in AMD site won't work (as per the site).

Tried OKR (One key recovery, Lenovo feature, restores back to initial backup) still the problem occurs.

Went for leshcat drivers 14.4_WHQL_UnifL, still the problem occurs (currently installed with same, CCC removed). Now, i get BSOD randomly after logging in.

PFA : Contains the necessary package as instructed in BSOD posting instructions.

Recently upgraded my computer and did a clean install of windows 7. Current system specs are:

i5 3570k
noctua nh-u12p se2 cooler
gigabyte z77x-ud3h
16gb samsung 30 nm 1600 ram
silverstone strider plus 850w psu
samsung 830 256gb ssd
2x640gb caviar black raid 0

I recently purchased a gigabyte 7950 as well and that is the card I have been using with this build. I have not begun to overclock as I wanted to make sure the system ran fine at stock. I decided to begin overclocking the gpu and noticed no problems beyond the usual system crash after reaching the limit at stock voltage which I then bumped up. No problems really from the overclocking as far as I could tell. I was even stable in heaven and bf3 for a good hour. However, after letting the computer idle (and I assume go to sleep as I have that set after 30 mins), I came back to find the system non responsive and having to manually power cycle it. After logging back into windows, I was greeted with a check for resolution of the issue when I then discovered a BSOD had occurred. I assumed it was due to the overclock so I set it back to stock and noticed the same error after letting it idle again while I grabbed a bite to eat. After checking the minidump folder though, I learned that this had actually occurred a couple times prior to even beginning overclocking, so I assume that is not the issue.

I have run memtest for 3 hours and no errors were reported in that time frame. I have run prime95 for 30 mins ... Read more

A:BSOD after idling, error 0x1000007e driver atikmdag.sys

Well, I put the 7950 back in and disabled sleep mode. Again after leaving the computer at idle for a bit, it ended up crashing as I came back an hour later to find it with the tower still on and running yet no signal to the monitor forcing me to power cycle it. Any thoughts?

Hello alltogether,

I am using Windows 7 on my ACER Aspire 6530 (Graphics: ATI Radeon HD 3000 Series). On Monday, I did a lot of video-editing the whole day. I went into the hibernate mode over the night. Yesterday, my laptop rebootet after booting up windows.

1. When I turn on my laptop (when I type my BIOS passwort in order to boot), i get some vertical grey lines on my screen. After getting in the BOOT-Menu (I have more OS) the grey lines disappear.
2. I am using a Monitor on VGA and my laptop display (2 displays), because my laptop-display does not work normaly anymore...Sometimes I only get a black screen --> graphic-card hardware problem?? VGA works well.
3. After selecting a OS and booting up, I get a Bluescreen 0x00000116 error. I followed the BSOD - Posting Instructions and posted the zip-File here. I attached a screenshot of my last Dump-File that I opened with "BlueScreenView" too.

What I did:
I can get into the SafeMode without problems. In Hardware-Manager, I deleted the DisplayDriver.
Without display-Driver, I can boot normaly and work in Windows. After Windows boots up, it installs the standard display driver automatically. After rebooting, I get the same BlueScreen again.

So I can only work without display driver.

I hope somebody can help me.
Thank you,

I am new to these forums and not the most tech savvy.

I first started having BSOD errors in October. I asked a friend and he said they would soon disappear. This appeared to be the case but they eventually returned. I would typically get several within the space of a few days and then they would cease again for a month or so. In total, I've had 23 such errors and am starting to get fed up. They appear to occur randomly and I have not been able to associate them with any hardware. I updated my BIOS from A06 to A10 about a week ago but that hasn't solved my problems. I've tried doing some online research about the error codes but I haven't made any progress.

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer, it will be greatly appreciated.

A:BSOD error 0x0000007E

Hello Mafi, welcome to SevenForums!

I have taken a look at your dumps, a lot of the dumps are similar, but you have different errors as well in general. You have one "SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED_M" bugchecks, two "KERNEL_MODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED_M" bugchecks and one "REFERENCE_BY_POINTER" bugcheck.

Interestingly enough, 3 out of the 4 dumps provided show that dxgmms1.sys as the faulting module / image name. dxgmms1.sys is a Microsoft related file that has to do with DirectX. It can be graphics related (software or hardware), memory, power supply, etc. Many things can cause this specific 8E bugchecks.

The first thing I recommend you do is uninstall your current graphics card drivers, and then update your nVidia drivers to the latest version.


If updating your drivers does not solve the problem, we'll move on to hardware tests:

Run Memtest (I recommend for at least 6-8 passes).

Download and run SeaTools to test for Hard Drive issues.

Old driver(s) that need updating:

3xHybrid.sys - 3xHybrid Fri Apr 20 01:34:48 2007 (ASUS Hybrid TV Tuner by Philips Semiconductors GmbH (may have ATI chipset) - SAA713x PCI TV Card). Update here.

I got an MS Antivirus (malware) a few days ago, and when trying to fix my computer I somehow jacked it up pretty good. I created a partition and got an older version of XP running (which I'm on now) but I'd like to fix the other drive with XP Media center xyz running on it.

The BSoD error I receive is: 0x0000007E (0xC0000005, 0x805300009, 0x7A2A508, 0xF7A2A204).

I cleared out the malware using Malwarebytes and it says I'm clean now (on both drives).

Would you help me correcting this error please?

I'm not sure if a HJT log would be useful as I'm on the functioning drive/OS.

Hi Guys, This is a second post from another thread as i still havent had any replies.

Im experiencing blue screen of death errors that is stuck in a loop. It will not let me into windows even even with Safe Mode etc. iv tried all the options. Below are the details.

Dual layer DVD burner
Gigabit lan, wifi, 5 card reader, webcam, dolby digital sound.
Win Vista home basic
Yes this is the cheapo laptop that everybody clawed at in Australia Office Works etc. For that price you cant go wrong.

Anyway the problem happened about 1 min after i put a USB 1gig mp3 player to the laptop, while installing "Alcohol 120%" Version 1.9.2 a Backup CD Burning program. This is a trail version.

Before all this happened i managed to make a Win Vista Basic Recovery Factory Default backup on 2 DVD-R disks. But its still refusing to do a fresh install. I really don't want to go down that path as a fresh install.

So long story short.... HEELLLPPPPP.... pretty please.

Thanks so much.

Welcome aboard, BlueSOD.

Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120% (or any other version) and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known BSOD causer. Uninstall Alcohol at first. Then download SPTD standalone installer from Disk-Tools.com, and execute the downloaded file as guided below :
Double click to open it.
Click this button only:

If it is grayed out, as in the picture, there is no more SPTD in your system, and you just close the window.
Free up the startup. Windows does not need any other program to auto start with it, but the auto start programs often conflicts and causes various problems including BSODs.

Click on the Start button
Type ?msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
Select the ?Startup? tab.
Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
Apply > OK
Accept then restart.
Update your ATI/AMD display driver. Get the latest WHQL.
You can get it from the link in our forum, Latest AMD Catalyst Video Driver for Windows 7, or you may go to AMD Graphics Driver and Software and opt for Automatically Detect and Install the appropriate driver for your card.

During installation, you may opt for advanced installation, and install the display driver only, not the Catalyst Control Center.
Let us know the results.

I started to get 0x116 BSOD atikmdag.sys after turning on windows auto updates.
I turned off the auto update and performed system restore.

But couldn't fix the issue. Turned off auto restart on system failure. Then regularly i got the message ATI stopped responding and recovered.(But not the blue screen). Almost for three days.

Yesterday, downloaded turbo c++ ide. There were some messages like "windows color scheme changed". Then after 10 mins the blue screen with 0x116 atikmdag.sys appeared. Yesterday itself I uninstalled the turbo C++ ide. But today while playing EA cricket again the same bsod appeared.

I have no idea about the display drivers. Attached minidump. Help please.

A couple of thoughts to start with:

You do not have service pack 1 installed it contains a number of security and stability updates please install it:

Learn how to install Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1)

next it seems that your video card drivers are mostly at fault here, likely what happened is that windows installed an update that conflicts with your xp-era drivers:

Hi Lolzchicken. Apparently either of the cards are failing.

Display Devices
Card name:

Display Memory: n/a
Break the crossfire. Remove either card, let only one be there. Uninstall the installed display driver using Display Driver Uninstaller. Then install the CCC 14.4 WHQL only.

If you dont get the regular display back, or it it continues to crash, remove that card and apply the other there, see how it goes.

Hello, my name is Rochelle.

I received a BSOD yesterday while playing Battlefield 3. I have auto restart turned off, and recorded the information given. I know the first (main?) error pertains to a video driver problem/conflict, right?
Yet, I've searched that the first code also pertains to SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED and means that a system thread generated an exception that the error handler did not catch, which I have no idea what this means... (found this off of pcsupport.about.com)

My windows was working fine till yesterday when i shut down my PC . Today when i started my PC it displayed the windows logo (animation) at startup and showed the error code 0x0000007e and few other codes in bracket

I can start windows in safe mode / with cmd /with networking but other options are ending up in the same error. (last known cofig/low resolution etc.)

A:Win 7 BSOD error code 0x0000007e


There are no .dmp's attached in your jcgriff output folder.

Please navigate to C:/Windows/Minidump and zip up any dump files located there that you'd like to have analyzed, and then attach that zip here. If there are no dumps located in C:/Windows/Minump, you may be writing full memory dumps to C:/Windows, and it'll be called MEMORY.DMP.

I have read through numerous posts on the forum as well as googled this topic extensively but can't seem to find something that fits my situation. So here goes...
I initially had a BSOD error 0x0000007e and 0xc000005 come up with no other information listed afterwards. I tried restarting and got into safe mode, downloaded windbg.exe tried to install it but windows installer couldn't run in safe mode. Thus I was kind of stuck. Tried to reboot then couldn'nt get into safe mode any more either.
I then booted off the windows re-installation cd and ran chkdsk /r which found one error and fixed it. Then I repaired the windows installation and upon reboot igot another BSOD with the 0x0000007e error only now it lists igxpmp32.sys afterwards.
Still can't boot into windows normally or in safe mode.
Any suggestions?

It is a Dell optiplex 755, intel dual core processor 2.4 ghz (i think) 4 gb ram, 2 hard drives, cd/dvd drive

FWIW: My impression is that 05 STOP errors tend to be malware issues.http://www.aumha.org/a/stop.htmAs you can see, no real help above re 7E STOP errors.Info on igxpmp32.sys.Louis

I keep getting it all the time at least twice a week and it always tends to happen while I'm browsing in Google Chrome (usually when I'm watching a video)

Specs just in case:

Intel i7-4770
8gb ram
radeon hd 7770

Okay, first things first, I have already taken this problem to a different section of this forum and they said to bring it here, so here is a link to that one to help out a bit.Mentioned TopicAlright, now my laptop is a Dell Latitude D610, is running the Windows XP and is at least 3-4 years old(to me).The problems that I have noticed is that a few weeks ago a blue screen popped up saying that it had to immediantly stop to prevent an error so I rebooted to see if that would fix it and it popped up yet again. Here is the message it pops up at the bottom.*** STOP: 0x0000007E (0xC0000005, 0x80537041, 0xF79AA434, 0xF79AA130)So far I can tell that it will not allow me into either normal boot mode nor will it allow me into Safe Mode w/ Netowrking, and that sometimes my mouse moves without me touching it(into a single direction, not all crazy or anything).I have already tryed memtest 86 and it came up clean, tried to use my norton anti-virus and got similar results.Now when it occurred I was trying to fix a problem with my browser(with a app(or program?) by norton. I began to run it and it went to reboot and then the BSOD popped up.So far I have used an app by jcgriff2 to collect info about my computer and mini tool box to list all installed programs. You can find the results in the topic mentioned above. If any info more info is needed I will try and get it(and sorry if this is a bit lowsy, my skills with computers isn't that great.)
