Yeah ive already seen such solution. But i dont want to make this until ive heard from AMD what is the fix for the driver problem.
So when the answered me and i get through this list ive posted at the end.
So when the fix is working that you have in the link, why cant AMD make it as Hotfix or make their driver stable.
When you read first posts here you will see that ive asked before i got my graphiccard if there are much trouble with the drivers of AMD.
And there were few and said not much or something. (Fan-Boys).
But after ive plugged in my graphiccard i see the first driver problems.
AMD/ATI has no good reputation, that i know before. But i gave it a try. And now im one of the driver problem users here.
I try to go through the list. Hear what the support has to say. Make the fix in your link (bad bad bad because i have do it everytime i make a driver update or reinstall my system, i guess) and when nothing is working i make a refund and buy a Nvidia graphiccard like i did before and before that and before that.
So here the list ... you can follow me.. i will make for evey point a [x] for already checked or already made.
- [x - no] If the issue occurs only when using a specific application, it may have known issues or corrupt files
- Contact the application’s manufacturer for further information or for possible software patches
- Perform a clean installation of the application
- [x - up to date] Microsoft DirectX® files may be outdated or corrupt
- Reinstall Microsoft DirectX or install the latest version
- Microsoft Article 179113 provides instructions for downloading /installing the latest Microsoft DirectX version
- [x - up to date] The motherboard’s BIOS / chipset drivers may be outdated
- Check the motherboard manufacturer’s website for available BIOS / chipset driver updates
- Refer to the update’s release notes to determine if it has a fix for your specific issue
- [x - up to date] The operating system may require a service pack update
- Refer to the following Microsoft pages for instructions on downloading / installing the latest service packs:
- [x - no Vista] Several known issues in Windows Vista may be related to the issue
- Refer to the applicable Microsoft article(s) to obtain any necessary hotfix downloads:
- [x - reg cleaned] The operating system may have corrupt system / registry files
- Try cleaning the operating system’s registry
- [x - no way, last reinstall for 4 weeks] Perform a clean install of the operating system
- Note! Performing a clean installation of the operating system will erase all data on the hard drive. Ensure all important data is backed up before performing this action
- [x - think so] The graphics card drivers may have known issues or corrupt files
- Refer to Article 20870 for instructions on downloading / installing the latest drivers for your graphics card
- Refer to the drivers release notes to determine if there is a fix for your specific issue
- [x - no overclocked] An overclocked processor (CPU), graphics card or memory can cause system instability
- Run all hardware components at their default settings
- Refer to the motherboard’s manual for instructions on how to set hardware to default settings
- [x - no] An inadequate or defective power supply (PSU) can prevent the processor / graphics card from functioning properly
- Refer to Article GPU-104 for instructions on how to determine if the PSU is inadequate or defective
- [x - dont think so] The CPU and / or GPU may be overheating
- Check the operating temperature of the CPU or GPU through the motherboard’s BIOS
- Refer to the motherboard manual for instructions
- Ensure the temperature does not exceed the maximum operating temperature of the product
- Refer to the AMD Products Resource Center to determine the maximum operating temperature of any AMD CPU
- Contact the graphics card manufacturer to determine the maximum operating temperature of the GPU
- If the hardware is above its maximum operating temperature:
- Ensure an AMD approved heatsink/fan (HSF) is being used with the processor
- Ensure the HSF unit is properly installed on the processor
- Ensure the bottom of the HSF is leveled on the top of the processor
- Ensure a proper amount of thermal grease is installed between the HSF and processor
- Ensure that the fan on the graphics card and processor’s heat sink is connected correctly and that it is spinning when the system is powered on
- Check whether there are any loose cables stopping the fan(s) from spinning or blocking the air flow within the system case
- Verify that the airflow within the system case is circulating correctly
- Air should flow in from the front of the case and out through the back of the case
- [x - yeah maybe the graphiccard !?] Failing Hardware (processor, graphics card, motherboard and / or memory) can cause system instability
- If possible, try testing the hardware in another system to determine if the issue follows the hardware
- Run a memory test to determine the stability of the memory
- The following third party utility will test your memory for errors: Memtest86
- If using multiple memory modules
- Test each memory module individually in the system, referring to the motherboard’s manual to determine which slot(s) can be used for single memory setup
- Verify that each module is identified at the correct size and speed
- Contact the memory and / or motherboard manufacturer for more comprehensive troubleshooting instructions
- Replace the hardware
And at least ive do: http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-1656824/atikmdag-sys-error-bsod-startup.html
Now i can only wait if a BLUE SCREEN is appearing after that or not.
I will talk to my graphiccard vendor today, so they know my problem and when it appears again after that i will make a refund.
ONE LAST QUESTION:
I have to do this steps in http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-1656824/atikmdag-sys-error-bsod-startup.html everytime i make a driver update or reinstalling or ?
Furthermore. What is with auto-updater. I think Raptr (AMD Game Envolved) is updating driver automaticly or something.
I dont think this all (when its working) is a solution.
Whats the ******* problem with AMD and his drivers ? The reputation of his bad drivers is very popular and now i have the proof myself !
ONE LAST SPEACH:
I want to repeat some comments here (remind, that i asked "before" i got the new graphiccard if there are problems with drivers and AMD)
So they said to me:
Originally posted by: Practikill There seems to be a lot of issues, only because those without issues don't come here to say how well it works.
I have been with ATI/AMD for many years, and have never had a serious issue. Not to promise you won't, but that is my experience.
Originally posted by: QB the Slayer I have never had issues with ATI/AMD graphics in my 15+ years using them (First was either a Rage Pro or Rage Pro 128, it's so long ago I can't remeber for sure)... same can be said with my 11ish years of AMD CPU's (First was a Athlon XP 2600+ Barton).
Hmmm.. interesting .. and i have "Blue Screens", after few days of having an AMD. I would say this was Fan-Boy Talk.
