    Rolling BSOD due to GPU drivers


    My Windows 10 laptop entered a boot loop after installing new GPU drivers in an attempt to get my laptop to recognise my GPU instead of using the windows default adapter. I did a full reset of my PC thinking it would get rid of the drivers but all that managed to accomplish was the deletion of all my stuff as well as the administrator account that lets you use most of the recovery options.

    I have tried starting in Safe mode normally, with networking, and using low-resolution mode but none got past the blue screen. The codes are “video_tdr_failure” and “atikmpag.sys.” As I said, I believe that reinstalling the drivers would fix it, but I don’t know how to accomplish that without being able to use safe mode

    During additional fiddling I was somehow able to get into command prompt and startup repair but I don’t remember how. Anyway, startup repair said it was unable to fix the problem and in command prompt I used chkdsk on both my C and D drives as well as smartdisc and SFC, none of which solved the issue.

    I’m an exchange student who doesn’t have a car due to just arriving so I’d like to try to fix this myself before going to a costly repair place off campus. Thanks in advance for any help.

    BSOD- atikmpag.sys

    This is most likely due to an installation/upgrade error with ATI driver's. I suggest doing DriveSweeper and the following:
    • Drivesweeper all drivers & in Safe Mode
    • Unistall all drivers that aren't used in DriveSweeper (CCC Profiler Updates, MSI AfterBurner, anything related to ATI that use's it's drivers.)
    • After you do this, the first thing you need to do is go into Device Manager and Unistall your ATI Drivers

    Once your done, restart the PC and then try installing the latest drivers.


    I had several issues with this in the past, but I overcame it with logical reasoning and whenever I have a driver issue, I just use these steps and I always overcome the problem.

    Best of luck! *Toast :toast:

  3. GPU driver updated, overriding nVidia driver, resulting in dxgmm2.sys BSoD

    I updated to Windows 10 Pro. I installed the latest nVidia driver and everything was working fine.

    The next day, I get an alert saying gpu driver was updated. I think that is odd. Then a few hours later, while playing a game, I get the BSoD saying dxgmm2.sys crashed.

    A potential WORKAROUND is "rolling" back the driver (how cute engineers).

    We need a permanent solution. Windows does not have any business updating drivers for discrete gpus made by other companies. These companies release their own drivers.

  4. Rolling BSOD due to GPU drivers

    BSOD Windows 10 - Driver Verifier causing windows to boot loop and carnt get BSOD to find driver at fault. need help!

    Right, I have done a lot of testing over the weekend and these are the results;

    1. disabled gpu = BSOD
    2. removed gpu drivers and gpu from system = BSOD
    3. removed battery and cleared CMOS
    4. tried a old AMD gpu and driver = BSOD
    5. moved ram from stots A2 & B2 to A1 & B1 = BSOD
    6. ram a single ram stick in A2 = BSOD
    7. ram the other ram stick in A2 = BSOD
    8. disconnected corsair lighting node pro = BSOD
    9. sfc /scannow = no issues
    10. updated all windows 10 + drivers to the latest versions = BSOD
    11. enabled driver verifier = BSOD (creative video capture driver shown as issue
    12. uninstalled creative software and drivers = BSOD
    so where do I go from here? (other that throwing my 2k computer that's less than a year old out my window)
