I'm having a problem where my computer is getting a blue screen. I have noticed that the BSOD happens after the PC has been running for about 2 days. The BSOD's seem to be an error with atikmpag.sys with an error code of 0x00000116. The problem started about a month ago.It has happened all five times that I left my computer on that long in the past month.
Because my computer is a pre-built one from Dell, and I had upgraded the graphics card (at least a year ago) to a more demanding one, I replaced the stock 360W power supply that came with it. I replaced it with a more powerful, 680W one, because it seemed like the problem could be related to a lack of power supply wattage, but it didn't affect the problem at all. I have also run Memtest86+, and no errors were found.
Here are the minidump files for the five BSOD's that I have experienced:
- Windows 7 Home Premium x64
- Dell Studio XPS 435MT
- Radeon HD 5670 (Version 12.4 of the Catalyst driver)
- Intel Core i7 920 2.67 GHz
- 6GB of RAM
