I wasn't able to locate anything in the event viewer that would explain this around the times the BSODs occur. I also analyzed the crash dump and it keeps pointing to atikmdag.sys (one of my crash dump bugcheck analysis is at http://www.vistax64.com/vista-hardware-devices/3707-atikmdag-sys-post765915.html#post765915 in case you want to see it). Also, the BSOD does not consistently occur during...

ATIKMDAG.SYS by chuckbam[_6_]
I would not think having the drivers loaded only would cause BSOD. I would look in the event viewer.

I initially didn't install CCC. But, when I started getting BSODs, as a test I did install it to see if it would resolve the BSODs. Unfortunately for my computer, having CCC installed or not installed doesn't affect the BSODs. -- mehuh

It appears that I do have the older Intel chipset drivers despite my installing the news ones because we have to do a manual upgrade: "In order to install an updated version of the utility, you will need to use the have-disk installation method. Otherwise, you can use the setup program to install the utility" 'Intel® Chipset Software Installation Utility - Have-disk...

VISTA shutsdown my SATA HD. by Bryan Todd
I've been using vista for about a year and never had any problems. But now all of a sudden my SATA HD spins down and shuts off, forcing a re-boot to bring it back. HD passes all the SMART testing and is not overheating. Now for the weird stuff: I moved the HD to another port.....it works with no problems. I installed an additional disk to the port that was causing the

Blu-Ray drive sporadically disappears by Sukasa
For some annoying reason, the Blu-Ray disk drive in my stock HP dv9847ca Notebook (1 month old, so still within warranty) seems to have an odd habit of sporadically disappearing on me - it won't show up in explorer, nor device manager. It does, however, show up in BIOS. The problem I have is that the drive itself seems to have power/etc, and when it -is- showing, it works fine, and only ever...

Vista 64 Question by Wonderman
I'm considering getting a new HDD with 32MB cache and installing Vista 64. The machine is a Pentium D running 2GB Memory with an Intel 945G chipset. I also use ReadyBoost quite successfully. I'll be installing some 32bit software afterwards. Appreciate all help and thoughts and cautions ?

Intel® Core 2 Duo Processor E4700 by Jan Vigne
The new HP that I purchased eleven days ago has failed. Micro Center says it is no longer available. They are offering an Acer with the Intel Core 2 Duo processor in it as a comparable unit. The HP had a dual Pentium chip. Is there a difference between the Core and the Pentium? I was under the impression the Pentium was still -the- Intel chip to buy. What I purchased eleven days ago;...

Windows FAX & Scan and Canon MP780 by PvdG42
I have an MP780 attached directly to my Vista Ultimate box and I'm trying to get the FAX function going as the FAX software that came with the 780 is not Vista-compatible. I have full scan, copy and print functionality, and it appears that Vista recognizes the 780 FAX functionality because I was able to add "Canon MP780 FAX" as a device in Control Panel-Printers. It shows as ready. OTOH,...

DVD/CD Drive not even showing up! by gallegra

I checked around, and I can't find any proof that my disc drive even EXISTS, whether it has a disc in it or...

vista memory upgrade by bandahanson
I have never had a problem like this before. I purchased an hp laptop for my wife with vista installed. After several months she told me how slow it was so I decided to upgrade to two gig. I purchased crucial memory and installed. Since then it has been nothing short of a nightmare. The machine will suddenly stop booting, then it will magically boot again then it will stop. It is not the hard...
