AMD Catalyst Driver Version, and Driver History
Default Windows drivers at the moment. Tested the following:
- 13.11 beta 9.5
Windows 8.1 64 bit
First driver 13.4 got a couple of BSODs (SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION 0x3B)
Then I decided to install the latest version, 13.12. I got a BSOD during the installation of the driver: the screen goes black twice. Then it goes black another time, I hear the sound Windows makes when disconnecting hardware, my screen dims, and then I get another BSOD (SYSTEM_THREAD_NOT_HANDLED_M 0x1000007E). Both BSODs are caused by atikmpag.sys.
I've tried the versions listed above. Anything newer than 13.4 fails to install. 13.4 and below do install, but I get BSODs the next day.
The only thing that seems to work is the default driver from Windows. I also noticed that atikmpag.sys won't uninstall, unless I do it manually. If the PC is running on the default Windows driver, but when atikmpag.sys is not properly uninstalled, atikmpag.sys still causes BSODs.
I've also tried manually installing drivers. But this gives the exact same BSODs.
In this Dropbox folder you can find a couple of minidumps. Both SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION and SYSTEM_THREAD_NOT_HANDLED_M 0x1000007E.
