I have a HP ENVY 17 (17t-3200), Win 7 x64 that BSODs at boot. The video driver for my Radeon HD 7850M is at fault.
The usual pattern is:
- Boot and login.
- Wait ~30 seconds.
- Reboot and repeat 1-3 times.
- If it doesn't crash in the first minute, the computer runs fine indefinitely, even through sleep and resume.
The driver is the one HP has available, 8.951.9.1000, which hasn't been updated since my model was released. I've had this problem since getting the machine, and RMA'd the first one. The second one has the same problem.
Because this machine has switchable graphics (with a Intel HD 4000), I can't install the generic drivers from AMD.
What is going on, and how can I fix it?
