Same here, got random BSOD associated with ati driver files, usually happens on youtube videos and Diablo 3 (for some reason)...

 

I find it pretty amazing AMD haven't stepped forward with ANY official announcment , or help. Even more mezmerizing is that no one on any social media channel I know of has raised this to the masses

Originally posted by: Machine Hi,

 

I own a Sapphire R9-290x and I've also been experiencing these BSOD regarding atikmdag.sys

 

 

 

Normally everything is fine, I can game for hours without issues. But one site I visit (used to) almost always cause it to crash. playrust.com

 

It has a few flash videos there that my ATI drivers hate.

 

Somebody please fix this!!

 

 

 

 

Thank you VERY much for the website. This makes the BSOD reproducable on my computer as well. I'm going to show this to my provide live at the store!

I am also having random BSOD issues with this card, it happens while  watching a flash video or playing a game.  I've upgraded drivers whenever they're available hoping the problem will go away.  No such luck.  They should probably do a recall of this card and refund everyone's money.

Hi guys,

another BSoDing R290X here. XFX DD EDFD one and got regular STOP 0XA0000001 BSoDs whenever I muck around with Flash and browsers. I typically tend to trigger them when trying to switch to full screen or when it is already in HD format fullscreen and move the timer. Also reported this on their survey page. Given how long this topic has existed, maybe I should poke XFX about this.

My problem is resolved. I have the latest flash, and with the latest browser update, the shockwave flash only crashes in the browser, and does not bsod the machine.

Did you ever had BSOD while a game is running?

I did not bsod during a game. I have had one black screen crash during "remember me" while I was running msi afterburner, but I don't know if that is a game/card/afterburner issue.

I have the Sabertooth X58 motherboard I've been experiencing blue screens and random video colors on the monitor.  Three days ago I found other users with Sabertooth motherboards having similar issues, if you change it over to the other PCIE slot it seems to solve most of the issues.  I did this, I had it in the second slot to improve airflow. I moved it to the first slot and I haven't had any BSODs or black screens in three days, I was experiencing several BSODs/random colors a day.  I will come back with an update.   This may not just apply to this one motherboard, if you own any asus motherboard try different pcie slots and completely wipe the driver/reinstall.

 

**Edit: I'm still experiencing blue screens due to ati related driver files.  This did not resolve my issue, I'll be RMAing the card.

Same problem here:

I'm using a Club 3D R9 290 and couldn't watch youtube video's without getting blue screens. I was still on Windows 7, so i just did a fresh Windows 8.1 install and upgraded my PSU to a 860W model but I'm still getting BSOD when playing a video on youtube. When disabling hardware acceleration in flash it works, but it looks ugly...

It's unacceptable that after all this time there still isn't a real solution for this. Thinking about swithcing to Nvidia...

Hello all,

I am new to the forums.

Ofcourse i do have the exact same problems, i do own a Gigabyte R9 290

It was crashing a lot even with browsing the net etc.

So i did a few changes and it looked stable untill right now for no reason.

Changes i did.

1. Only install driver from AMD !! No CCC in short nothing you need all the streaming and whatever crap is a real pain... btw i use RadeonPro for creating profiles for games, etc.

2. Install MSI Afterburner.

and go to settings tab, and make sure you select

=> Disable ULPS => Force constant voltage => also top box (mine is in dutch so dunno exact english translation)

Next step got to FAN tab

and create your own fan settings and.... try to get the GPU temp around 72/75 degrees Celsius.

I dont have a screenshot yet if someone wants it i will upload it.

This was stable for me till right now and performing realy wel.

Gipsyganger mentioned this on the forum

*i bought the MSI R9 290 and have the same problem BSOD, the reason is the hyper trasnport timeout, the only way i could make the system stable was to make the pcie clock to 140 in the bios, after that it was stable, my motherboard is a asus m5a78l le, i think this may happen because of our pcie 2.0 ports are not able to handle the load of the r9 290, what are your opinions on changing pcie clock on the bios*

So i am trying that right now (i also have ASUS MB) and it seems stable till this moment.

Been running benchmarks for some time now and no probs.

My question to Gipsydanger... why 140 on the PICe clock.... ?  my bios will go up to 150.

But till now it indeed is stable.

I hope you are still around because 1 way or the other this should get fixed for such an expensive (and good) card these problems are insane

I'm also having this issue. I just bought my card and installed it about 1 month ago. I dont overlock; always stock on all my video cards.

I've tried every driver and also the latest beta driver... 14-7-rc1-windows-july9 and it's still doing it.... Why's this taking so long to fix AMD?

This is an ongoing issue... if I would have seen this thread, I wouldn't have bought another AMD card and got an NVIDIA instead because they are also releasing drivers.

Your driver updates are like watching an old folks cross a busy intersection in New York City.... extremely slow!!!

Hello Vipeness

Mine is very stable now and performing very well.

If you do what i did discribe above the problem should be solved.

But you need to set the Pci express clock to 140 Thats the main thing.

Try it !

i still have 1 problem.. i am running a dual boot on my system.

Win 7 64 bit for 99 % of the stuff and.... WinXP (offline) for older stuff which is not running well on 7/8

But no more drivers for win XP for the R9 290....

If someone knows where i can find a (modded) driver i would be very thankfull
