I recently bought my mother a desktop however the AMD video drivers just won't get stable.
I have tried installing beta and WHQL drivers from the AMD site and Windows Update but both do not work. (I even have to disable windows update for the APU edit: otherwise it "helps me" by automatically installing drivers and making me unable to boot)
- I download and install (even with express install)
- I reboot and then BSOD saying the graphics "Attempt to reset the display driver but recover from timeout failed" and saying atikmpag.sys is the problem stops me from booting to OS.
- So failsafe mode and uninstall drivers so that the computer is actually usable.
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64bits
Motherboard: MSI FM2-A55M-E33 (MS-7721) 2.0
PSU: Integrated No brand 400w
Display: using VGA connection
Ram: 2x2GB DDR3 Geil
Boot device: Kingston SV300S37A60G SSD
I have tried decompressing manually the atikmpag.sy and putting the newly decompressed atikmpag.sys in System32 and replacing it but doesn't work.
I've seen loads of issues with the atikmpag.sys so I guess its a common issue, I've also heard it might be a bad chip or insufficient PSU but for PSU this computer is really for work so no stress is put on it.
I hope someone will be kind enough to help me, thanks a lot!
