Thread: Bluescreen loop




  1. #1

    Default Bluescreen loop

    Hi Guys,

    Recently I built a new system with a Gigabyte EP45-DS4P and I seem to be getting a bluescreen every time I shoutdown/ restart using Vista 32b or 64b. This is happening more times then not. Out of every 10 powerups or restarts I might get a normal startup process. The error that I am getting says something about ATIKMDAG.SYS and it goes through a mini dump. I have tried updating the graphis driver with no success, which leads me to belive it is something with the board?
    Currently I have had to revert back to XP which doesn't have any of the above symptoms.

    The build specs are:

    Gigabyte EP45-DS4P
    Intel CORE2QUAD Q6600
    Gskill 2 x 2GB DDR2
    Western Digital 500GB Sata
    Connect 3D HD4850

    Can someone shed some light on this problem?


    Cheers.

    It sounds to me like a ATI driver, they all have issues Nvidia as well. Especially with vista. What you should do is use a older ATI driver.

    If you need to know where to find older ones let me know and I will post a link. I am always about 3-5 versions behind for this very reason. Although I am using 8.6 right now with no issues though. But I only installed to test the Avivo Converter for someone.

    Do you have the latest Intel Chipset drivers installed? Just checking.

    Are you using a Beta BIOS?

    What settings are yu using in the MIT section? (Just so I can be sure it is not a incorrect setting possibly) >>>>

    This is Just a template I use to ask people there settings, pay no attention to the numbers in it, replace with yours. If you find posting a Image is easier for you feel free to do so

    Hi,

    Thank you for the advice.

    My BIOS has not been updated since the unit was put together. I will install the latest BIOS update when I get home. (Not the Beta version)
    Also the chipset has not been updated.

    The unit was put together by a friend here at work and according to him no updates had been done, so this maybe part of the issue.

    Once I do the update and reinstall Vista at some stage I will post the outcome.


    Cheers.

    Ahh! Well if you do update the BIOS DO NOT USE @BIOS. Please use Qflash with a floppy or a USB Stick, or make a FAT32 Partition on your disk and put the BIOS files there.

    Intel Chipset driver download is here >>>
    Download Software, Drivers and Utilities Filters

    You will need to install vista first, then install the chipset drivers for it to help. But you would also likely want to install them in XP as well since you are using it now. Be sure you do grab both versions if you plan to update vista later since they are different for each system

    And here is the Latest 8.7 ATI Drivers page incase you did not know >>>>
    Drivers & Software

    If you do want a older ATI driver you can get them ALL here if you like >>>
    Old Version of ATI Catalyst Drivers Download

    Hi,

    So I updated my BIOS last night. Turns out the version I had was F2, so I upgraded to F5. As for the Intel chipset utility, I downloaded it, but it failed to read my chipset or anything else it was supposed to be able to do. Would this be an error with Windows or should I just reinstall the chipset drivers off the CD that came with the motherboard?<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>
    Also for the BIOS settings I will try to get that info as soon as possible.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>
    Thanks again for all your help.<o:p></o:p>

    Hey, forgot to say... Love the Screen Name! I wish they would make another movie of that! It has been one of my Fav's since the 80's

    Which did you download? You should be downloading the file that is named "infinst_autol.exe" And double click that and it will run and install all needed drivers.

    Are you getting a error with that, or did you download a different file? If you did get a different one, grab the one named specifically that. If you get a error please post a screenshot so I can see what you mean

    You can install them off your CD, but they are likely WAY old, best to get the newer ones

    Yeah the good old Back to the Future films hey. Each film in the series was great. But I have to say, I am a little pissed that hover boards aren't around yet lol.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Ok, as for what file I downloaded for the chipset drivers. I simply clicked on the link you supplied below and selected my OS which is XP Pro and downloaded the file.
    “Intel Chipset driver download is here >>>
    Download Software, Drivers and Utilities Filters” I tried using this on the work PC this morning and it worked fine. I think perhaps “infinst_autol.exe” is a different link?<o:p></o:p>

    Hey, that eBay link says the item has been removed damit lol. Perhaps I could go back to the future and bid on it haha. Yeah poor joke I know lol

    Now for the good news. Last night I put Vista 32bit back on and so far I have not had one BSOD (knock on wood). Also the latest ATI Catalyst suite with no issues. I am guessing it was the BIOS update that fixed the problem. Furthermore, I have shutdown and restarted at least 7 times and have not seen the good old BSOD lol.

    So thank you for all the help and direction.

    P.S. I have also installed the latest chipset drivers.
