Hello,

I have a nasty BSOD problem with atikmpag.sys (and my Radeon 5650). Windows can only be started in Safe Mode (and a really bad screen resolution), but after spending many hours to look for solutions and trying some of them I'm confident that what I now need is to install the CCC 15.7 WHQL.

Sadly, I can only find version 15.7.1 and that's not fixing the BSOD.

Does anyone here have better search skills or the version 15.7 installer still on their HD?

If they did a .1 fix they probably pulled the previous driver from their download page.  I would try the Wayback Machine Web Archive

If this was an update that went bad, try doing a driver rollback with Device Manager.

Wayback didn't help and rolling back (sadly) wasn't an option, but I now contacted the AMD support. They pointed me to the 15.7 version (http://support.amd.c...0-%2064&rev=15.7). Fingers crossed!

@dr_andus: yeah, that sucks...

Turned out the AMD gfx card had developed a hardware issue, and since my Vaio model didn't allow to replace it, it was time for a new PC.  :down:

I decided to buy an Acer, and am just in the process of installing everything. I love how quiet it is!  :up:
