Hi.

Well like the title says I have this issue whit my display driver. No matter what I do I can't seem to get rid of this error. This usually happens when I play games, but only in certain moments. For instance if I play World of Warcraft it only crashes in dungeons or raids where the graphics become more demanding. The temperatures of my graphics card get to 55 degrees celsius at the most, but are mostly around 45 degrees celsius. When the driver crashes it does recover but only for around 3 seconds and then it crashes again and keeps crashing like that untill I restart the computer. After the restart the driver works again. The crashes are random. Sometimes I can play for a couple of hours untill it crashes and sometimes it takes only about half an hour.

I have already tried some different things but none of them seemed to help. I tried using different versions of graphics drivers and the beta driver, but that didn't help. I updated windows, updated bios, reinstalled windows multiple times, tryed to set the Timeout Detection and Recovery registry value and even rebuilt the computer.

Once but only once I got a BSOD, I don't remember the error code but I do know that the error message was reffering to ATIKMPAG.sys.

Here are my computer specs:

Motherboard: GIGABYTE 970A-D3 rev.1.4
Graphics card: Asus Radeon HD 7750 1Gb GDDR5
Processor: AMD FX-6100 3.3GHz 6-core
RAM: GoodRam 2x 4Gb 1600 MHz
Power supply: LC Power 600W
Hard drives: Seagate Barracuda 80Gb and WD CaviarGreen 650Gb


Well I hope that the information I provided will be enough and am truly grateful for any help that any of you may provide

I kept getting that error with a 7790 but replacing it with a 560Ti cured the problem.

Yes well I would like to know what the issue is before I go out and buy new components. But in the worst case scenario I will probably have to change to a new graphics card even though this card isn't that old.

Faulty card or faulty drivers, take your pick.

Well I guess that the card must be faulty, because it is just impossible that 4 different versions of drivers would all be faulty and since i have my old GT 220 in the computer at the moment and it's working good so far. So I guess it's time for a graphics upgrade again, probably gonna get the Asus GTX 650 Ti ( http://www.asus.com/Graphics_Cards/GTX650_TI1GD5/ ) if i won't be able to refund the old card via varranty.

Just a quick question about the GTX 650 Ti , if I will decide and buy it I just want to know if there is a big performance difference between the 1Gb and 2Gb versions and if it's worth spending an extra 20€ to get the 2Gb version. Oh and if you would recommend any other card in that price range that is better in your oppinion I would be very gratefull for any good suggestions since I want to get the best price/performance ratio I can get for my money.
