I know the problem. He is using 32 bit Windows XP with a Pentium 4 processor with a 250 watt power supply from Wallyworld. And 2gb ram.

Problem solved  ...your system won't handle that card.

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.

 

 

 

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.

Since you are repeatedly experiencing problems with correctly configuring your system perhaps seeking professional computer repair assistance could be beneficial.

And what can he do what i cant do ?

Running software i can do either. He costs only money. Should i send the bill to AMD after that ?

No offense intended...sometimes when a solution is dicovered we have an "aw crap...should have thought of that" moment (or more "graphic" dawnings).

Obviously you are aware if a PC's components are not malfunctioning, it is up to the operator to utilize the available drivers, component selection decisions and proper configuration decisions to make it function and perform to our expectations. 

Stumped, b_z, Eydee, QB, et al or AMD and all the other enthusiasts cannot look into your PC case or sit at your keyboard to alleviate the stress of your situation....sometimes, having someone else physically do it helps tremendously.  When years ago I discovered that hdds could fail in RAID0 a computer repair guy told me that most people are well versed in "software" but know next to nothing about "hardware".  Since you are savvy with this gear you will be able to determine if the professional's recommendations are sensible.  Won't cost you that much if they don't disassemble your rig.

Don't give up.

Thats the probleme here. I think AMD is the only thing that is a "pesky computer component"

I have Corsair Ram, ASUS mainboard, i7 CPU.

The only component which makes trouble is AMD.

Further communication would be an exercise in futility.

So ive rwad alot in the web about the problem.

Tbe problem occurs when watching movies over the web. 

So some guys says deactivate this and this. Lol this is not a solution. Then i can plug in my old graphiccard which gives me hardware acceleration without blue screens.

the whole forum has problems with these graphiccards / or all AMD hardware. When i look to nvidia forum its very quiet there. I feel that im here wrong. Im not belong to this side.

@Stumped

I dont want this but give me a working solution.

A) Going back to a previous driver is not a solution. I never know if someday when a newer driver comes it is gone. 

B) all of my hardware is up to date in drivers and its good hardware. There is nothing where yoh ccan say other hardware is the problem.

C) A full new installation of windows 7 has not fixed the problem. What can i do more.

D) I did eeverything to make it working. I make the thing in the link and everything. I reinstall windows after nothing worked. Really i see no way to make AMD functional.

Give me a solution. So yeah i know at this point the only solution is to use NVIDIA.you dont want to say it but you have to admit that this is the only solution now.
