    Ok thanx for help anyway but i got a new asus 5970 & now i get the ATIKMPAG.sys bsod all the time, even after a fresh win7 64 install....... Anyway problem now well n truly solved..... I went out & bought a 480GTX!!!

    ATI make great tech but i think their drivers are just very poor...

    Get ready to see nvlddmkm.sys errors now!

    Sorry, just ATI Fan I suppose. Did you try the latest drivers for AIT before you switched to Nvidia?

    Or hey, did you ever get your BIOS updated beforehand, this may have been part of the issue as well?

    I left Nvidia years ago due to driver issues, and have not had one since on ATI, so I guess everyone is affected differently (And similarly) using either brand.

    Well anyway, glad to see you have a working card no matter what it is!

    lsdmeasap, u may well be right, all i know is after 2 4890's both rma'd and now on my third asus 5970 replacement card, ATI have some tech issues. I have 2 ati cards in my kids pc's working ok but my 5970 is awaiting RMA again tempted to tell distro to shove it where the sun dont shine n just give me another 480gtx as a swap. Dont get me wrong when it worked it was brilliant...... but having spent hours uninstalling & reinstalling ATI drivers swapping into 3 seperate pcs to test I've just had enough. I'm sure its a driver issue cause with no drivers ie standard vga win 7 driver it works flawlessly go figure. Same with the previous 2 5970's(even swapped manufacturers).

    Maybe it is the brand you are choosing? I hear terrible things about Asus cards actually.

    I only used Sapphire ones myself for years, until now, and have never had any issues.

    That is a lot of hassle for sure, and you know the "Next" driver release would have possibly fixed it, but I hear ya not wanting to keep on waiting for a fix.

    It is true about ATI drivers though i still and always will prefer ATI over Nvidia though i do miss the good old days when OmegaDrivers used to make Drivers :(

    They were so much better than the official drivers
