Graphic Cards :: Radeon BSOD Only In Windows 8 64bit
Sep 8, 2013
I've recently bought an XFX 7870 Tahiti and have been having loads of trouble getting the drivers installed in Windows 8 64bit. It shows up as Microsoft Basic Display Adaptor and when I try to install the Catalyst drivers I get the BSOD with the following error:
When I first got the card I spent a couple of weeks trouble shooting this. I tried various things such as driver refreshes, running memtest, reseating every component in the case. Basically everything I could find online!
Eventually I took an image of my HTPC which runs Windows 8 32bit and copied this image over to my new rig. The card then installed fine. The card works perfectly in 32bit with no issues what so ever. This is fine, other than the fact that I can only use 3GB of my 12GB of memory!
With the release of Windows 8.1 Preview I thought I'd have another bash at this but still get the same issues. On a completely fresh install of 64bit I get the same BSOD but the 32bit version is completely fine.
I have an Acer Aspire 5515 with an AMD Athlon 2650eprocessor (64 bit) however, I have installed the 32 bit version of Windows 8 Pro. I cannot locate a driver for the ATI Radeon Xpress 1200 Graphics card that is compatible with Windows 8 32 bit. Acer's website is no support, since they only ever sold the Aspire 5515 with XP or Vista 64 bit systems, therefore they cannot provide what I need.
AMD's website is useless. It's auto-detect system for determining which graphics card and operating system I'm using is incompatible with Windows 8, and there is no method for ,e to type in which card and OS I have (you can only select from pull down menus, and the 1200 series and Windows 8 are not listed). Following the links to contact their technical support take you to a video on how to determine what graphics card you have, then right back to the beginning all over again. Worthless.
ATI says I can run a Vista driver in Windows 7, but I can't even find a Vista driver in 32 bit, and I'm using Win 8, not 7. I'm to the point where I'm going to install Windows 7 64 bit and be done with it.
I can't install the drivers, when i run the setup it only installs AMD Catalyst Install Manager, no drivers the ATI Techonologies folder is empty. I tryed installing it manually from device manager but it says "The driver selected for this device dose not support this version of Windows". I really hope that i don't have to revert to Windows 7.
I just installed the Windows 8.1 Preview 64-bit last night and am loving the improvements over Windows 7 Pro 64-bit!!! I am running it on a Dell Optiplex 745 Tower.
My only problem is that my ATI FireGL V3100 is not being recognized by windows at all. I checked in the device manager and it doesn't even show up. I currently have a monitor hooked up to the card and it is working fine. Unfortunately, AMD doesn't have a driver for Windows 8. For that matter it didn't have on for Windows 7 either, only a Vista driver, but it worked fine in Windows 7. Same thing with the Dell drivers, worked for Windows 7, but not for Windows 8, even though the drivers were for Vista 64-bit.
I am wanting to hook up a second monitor, but when I do, it doesn't even detect the second monitor. All it does mirror the first display onto the second monitor. I looked into the Screen Resolution settings and even tried clicking Detect. Nothing. It found my first monitor, a Acer AL1916. Even when I unplug the Acer, it thinks the other monitor, a HP LP1965, is the same thing, it doesn't change the name of the monitor. I even tried going to HP to get a driver for my second monitor and installed that, to no avail.
I have the Dell Inspiron 15R 7520 SE laptop with 2GB AMD Radeon dedicated graphics. As far as I remember I have the AMD Radeon 7730 HD series hardware.Recently while upgrading my catalyst control centre I noticed that my hardware changed to AMD Radeon 7700(as seen in device manager). my Catalyst Control Centre is working fine.
I own a Sony Vaio (VPCEB4M1E) which came with Windows 7 and Mobility Radeon HD 5470. When I upgraded to Windows 8 Enterprise Evaluation, my Device Manager would show up my Display Adapter as "ATI Mobility Radeon HD Series 5000 - (Microsoft Corporation WDDM v1.20)
When I first tried installing the driver I downloaded, the installation would finish in mere seconds (only installs 20MB of the files which isn't really useful), giving me notifications of success. However, I knew it didn't install it, the screen didn't flash and well, the Device Manager didn't change its description at all. I had managed to find a solution by manually updating the driver through Device Manager. It worked great.
I upgraded to Windows 8 Pro recently but ever since I was not able to use this method in order to get my driver properly installed. Whatever I try, I keep getting the "Windows detected that your driver is up to date, etc etc) and I still get the same Microsoft Corporation information. I tried disabling automatic drivers installation but didn't work either. I downloaded various drivers which I know would work, it's just that I'm not able or allowed to install them. The setup installation is faulty and the Device Manager won't let me do it either. If I try to uninstall the current Microsoft-provided driver, then I lose the whole Display Adapter category from the list, making it impossible to install the driver.
Unless I manage to find some kind of turnaround for this, I'll probably have to do without proper drivers..
When playing almost any game that has some kind of load on the GPU (from FPS games to Strategy), the game often freezes after around 10 - 60 minutes of playtime and the FPS drops to an unbearable amount and the only way to 'solve' the FPS issue is to restart the PC.
For some games, this FPS drop doesn't happen and it just freezes about 4 or 5 times before ultimately crashing because of some display driver issue about the AMD drivers not responding. This kind of issue usually happens with the older games rather than modern ones.
I am running an MSI Radeon 6850 with an AMD Phenom II X4 960T and a 600W power supply. I have tried all kinds of graphics drivers: the latest stable ones, the latest beta ones. I have tried uninstalling all graphics drivers and reinstalling them, with and without driver cleaning software but all to no avail.
I am now starting to think it may be a hardware issue but I do not have another graphics card to swap it out for so.
I'm running Vista 64 and tried to upgrade to win 8. It went well enough, but my screen resolution became very poor. I have AMD Radeon X1250 graphics and can't find a driver that will work on Win 8, so I reverted to Vista. But I really want to run Win 8.
My system is a Windows 8 x64 Pro with Boot Camp 5 running on a 2011 Macbook Pro. I'm experiencing Windows crashes and distorted screen images with artifacts (see attachment #1) almost every time I start programs that require heavy video-processing (e.g.: games). The problem also happens, even if rarely, at random without doing anything particular.
This is what is shown in the debug trace of MEMORY.DMP:

As you see, it really looks like a video card problem related to atikmpag.sys. I think in cases like this the first thing to try is updating the drivers but unfortunately, since I'm running Windows on Boot Camp, it looks like there aren't suitable drivers apart from the ones I'm already using. I tried to install the ATI CCC 12.8 beta 2 (that is the only thing that I can run) that seem to suit my system, but that didn't work.
I have been suggested to look into the power settings of the video card (because they may lead to system instability), and specifically I tried playing a bit with the AMD PowerPlay - Technology in the CCC. Anyway, when I open the tab, the lists show up as blank and there is really no option I can work on (see attachment #2). It looks like my video card doesn't support this feature, even if I think it definitely should like it says in the AMD page: AMD PowerPlay.
Today, I got a new graphics card for my computer that is about 5 years old. Here are my specs:
Dell Inspiron 530 Intel Core 2 Duo e2500 2.33 GHz Processor NEW GPU: MSI Geforce GT 440 (N440GT) OLD GPU: NVIDIA Geforce 8600GT 3GB ram 300 watt power supply (unsure of 12V ratings) Windoes 8 Pro 64bit
I installed my GT440 into my computer today, and the card worked fine when there was no drivers installed. I uninstalled my older drivers from my 8600 and installed drivers for the 440. When I restarted, I got the BSOD with an error message saying VIDEO_DTR_FALIURE. What does this message mean, and what can I do to fix this BSOD problem? This didnt happen on my old card, but it does on my new card? Is there a problem with my power supply, or is it an issue with the drivers?
My computer is hp envy dv6 7280sf notebook with 2 GPUs intel graphics HD 4000 and Nvidia Gefoce 630 M running windows 8 64x.
After making an free upgrade online for windows 8.1 which run successfully, both gpus were ok...
But after receiving a windows update with new drivers for intel graphics 4000 gpu , after install and restart , the computer freezes on blank black screen at windows startup with no mouse or anything only backlight.
So safemode was succeful but i figured that the update for windos update was the cause and graphics drivers were installed so i removed the drivers for intel graphics and itried to reboot the computer so the restart was succeful but the intel graphics card was unistalled and no drivers were automatically installed so i tried to download and install the drivers from hp and intel website for windows 8.1 however the install fails.
Automatic install from device manager failed both online and from computer and even from manual driver selection.
So therefore the install failed in safe mode , and the high def audio device ( on screen audio possibly) failed and the device was not recongnized (no drivers installed) so i'm stuck without anydrivers for the integrated gpu and the games are no longer able to run normally even if the nvidia card is on.
I tried downloading an installing Windows 8 drives but it failed to install also , for instance any new install of drovers seems to fail for me even for external usb hard drive.
I installed windows 8 pro 64bit a few weeks ago and after that i had problems with my graphic card (amd 7850)
I tried the latest stable and the latest beta driver, but it's the same failure anyway. I can use my computer without problems, video games works too.
But if i watch a video on youtube, i got display errors and i must restart my computer with the reset key in normal desktop mode the card works on 300mhz, at the beginning of a youtube video it turns up to 450mhz and works. but if the video is over and the card turns back to 300mhz, it looks like the driver crashes (windows event log error:
The driver DriverWudfRd failed to load for the device
Here is the problem... everything boots just fine and runs with 2 of the GPU's installed. I have the latest AMD 13.12 drivers, and the AMD APP SKD installed. When I add the 3rd GPU though, windows will auto detect it as a Radeon 7900 with the caution sign, AND/OR a r9 200 series card, also with the caution sign, most times BOTH. Then it randomly freezes the system. A couple of times I got it to run long enough just by luck I guess, to install the 13.12 drivers on the 3rd GPU, but then in a few minuites the system would freeze again.
2 GPU's run just fine, the problem only shows up when the 3rd card is installed, and it happens on any of the 4 16x slots, or both 1x slots on the MOBO. It doesn't matter if the GPU's are directly on the MOBO, or on 1x16 risers. There are plenty of folks running this set up with up to 6 GPU's, so I know it can be done, but I must be missing something somewhere in the windows set up.
I've got a bit of a strange issue that I haven't had with previous OSes on this PC. I'm running a Dell OptiPlex 380 with Win 8 x64 at the office and I have to run 2 video cards for all of my screens. I have a GeForce 8400GS in the PCI-E slot and a GeForce 6200 in the PCI slot.
Previous to the Win 8 install, it worked fine. Booted exactly as I had shut it off. Now, with 8 - it's killing my PCI-E card presumably when it puts the screens to sleep when I leave for the day. So I'm coming in to all of my windows being moved to the PCI card's monitor (only one hooked to it) and I have to reboot to get PCI-E card to come back.
If I check the screen properties, I see only the screen hooked to the PCI card. I've changed the setting in the BIOS for the first video card to Auto and also tried the PCI-E selection and it's the same either way.
Why on earth would it default to the PCI card rather than the PCI-E card?
i am on windows 8.i am using HP laptop.this is my ccc version.
i got 2 problems:well first one is that i can't update to windows 8.1 as the update always hang on 82% and after that my laptop automatically shutsdown i don't know whats the reason is and that's why i am stuck at windows 8 till now although have 8.1 ISO but i don't want to install it as i have to erase my my windows 8 which came pres-installed so i will loose my genuine windows 8 .now i want to know what if i open the 8.1 installer and install it from a virtual tool like Deamon although it gives an option to keep files app setting safe but i fear that it would conflict with 8 and i would have to format my laptop then ok now to the major problem i just recently purchased Watch Dogs and installed it.I played the first mission and got busted so the mission failed and it began to reload and then a error pops up saying watch dogs have stopped working upon googling i found out that this is due to DUAl AMD Graphics so they stated that i should disable it but i cant find any option of disabling DUAL Graphics.
Today I purchased a Dell Inspiron 3000 series laptop, running Windows 8.1 Update 1 64-bit. However, whenever I shut down or reboot, I get a BSOD with the error, DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE. Strangely, it only occurs when I am running on battery power, and after the up time of the machine is 7 minutes. If it's plugged into AC then I don't have any issues.
The minidump shows that the problem seems to be caused by NTOSKRNL.exe.
my laptop is acer v5 471G he keep restarting when i try to shutdown it..
even when i do sleep, my laptop is not go to sleep mode.. but it restarting..
it looks like every switch in power is all becoming reboot not only that, sometimes when i doing my work.. my laptop restarting by its own and after i log in and come to start menu.. a blue screen appears and this i attached the file
Recently i got my hands on a titanfall beta-key and to play i had to have a 64bit system. I asked my friend to support with the upgrade and everything went fine until my pc started randomly crashing with Memory_management as the most common message. i've had a few others too but mainly this one. I don't understand that my pc keeps crashing because before with my win7 32bit there was never no issue. I tried doing this debug tool thing but it says access denied and the cmd window that opens also says WIN32 so did something go wrong with the installation of win 8 or what?
My Sapphire AMD HD 7870 just bit the dust so it has been sent back with an RMA. I had hoped to replace it with an ASUS AMD HD 3850 but Windows 8.1 will not work with it. There is an error message on a blue screen something about a header (I don't have the exact error message today).
I suspected it was a driver problem so uninstalled the existing driver and tried to install the latest AMD one. I can uninstall OK but as soon as I reboot the Microsoft driver installs itself giving me no opportunity to install the AMD one.
I just bought an Nvidia 620 card today. I run both Linux and Windows on my system. When I go to Linux, everything work fine. But in Windows 8, the GPU fan start to scream. Its too noisy! I even updated the drivers.
