Was having issues and found that i had many drivers out of date. I believe i was using a driver for my video card that was at least a year old.
First related BSOD- i got some help from another site with the following excerpted analysis from whoCrashed: This was probably caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x740BA) and: The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver that cannot be identified at this time. There were about 6 of these crashes in all, all only while running Playon software.
I updated to driver 9.0.300.1100 dated 12/19/13 (though the date on the site was in january of 2014) I am now getting BSOD's on websites with videos. It freezes and then crashes.
I used WhoCrashed to analyze the minidumps(several) and it advised that my crashes were caused by ati2dvag.dll stuck in an endless loop.
I tried rolling back the driver and that caused another set of problems for me as it seemingly just cant do that 'cuz the catalyst software was now incompatible with it? So after a struggle I was able to download and install the 9.0.300.1100 driver again.
Now I am getting BSOD's(2 in an hour) with whocrashed reporting the problem as ati2cqag.dll : Kernal mode exception not handled M and labeling it a software bug.
Do i have the right driver? What do i need to do to fix these issues?
