ASUS F2A55-M / Diamond AMD Radeon 7770 HD GHz Edition

Hello there,

While playing Rift on Low graphic settings I am experiencing sudden crashes -- And I am able to assume when these crashes are about to occur based on the increased volume of my PC (not sure if this is the fan?)

After the crash occurs -- Windows Event Manager states the following:

"Display driver amdkmdap stopped responding and has successfully recovered."

Considering so, I've reviewed my drivers and they are all up-to-date as well as the CCC which has been set to use factory defaults. The developers of Rift (Trion) has provided a few prevention steps to eliminate the crashes but these haven't helped at all unfortunately.

Based on the increase in noise, I am assuming that something is either overheating or I haven't configured something correctly? Please help.

My present setup --

MB: ASUS F2A55-M
Processor: AMD A10-Series 3.7GHz
DDR3 RAM: 8GB
GPU: Diamond AMD Radeon 7770 HD GHz Edition
PSU: 750W
OS: Windows 8

Not an AMD guy but I would check if the graphics on the A10 are disabled. Also, does the crashing happened on all games? Try running a benchmark that is AMD supported and tell me if it crashes. You might want to check up on the temps.

You have a good PSU, right? Check the temp of you GPU when running. use MSI afterburner. It shouldn't run at 80C+

Yes, the on-board A10 drivers have been disabled. This happening during gameplay of all games about 1-hour into it. I am downloading some benchmark software now and report back with the results. Temperatures after the crash were at about 50 degrees Celsius -- When checking the system information, for some reason I have both my AMD Radeon HD 7700 series card listed as well as a 'Microsoft Basic Render Driver', would this interfere?

My PSU is and LSP series V2 Pro 750W -- Brand new (same with the gfx card)

I will give the MSI afterburner a shot to let you know what happens.

*Is it normal to be using the 'Microsoft Basic Render Driver'?

Is that the only driver that you are using? That driver is just so you can use the GPU very basically just to set up the system or reinstall driver. Make sure you have the latest drivers for the card installed.

After using AMD's auto-driver detection application, it tells me that I have the latest one for my GPU - But, this doesn't mean that its actually activated and presently being used. Is there way to check this and ensure that its using the AMD drivers?

Head over to the Device Manager and find the card. Make sure that the A10 is disabled and not running in some sort of Crossfire setup by accident. If it shows that it is using Windows drivers, try uninstalling the AMD drivers fully (keep the AMD drivers that are not related to graphics). Then, don't use the AMD auto-driver-finder and manually find the drivers from the website. Then install the drivers. If the card is still running with the Windows drivers and you have installed the AMD ones. You can go ahead and disable the Windows drivers from the device manager. Also, I am sorry that it is taking me so long to answer these questions and if I am actually being a help at all. Try to get rid of any overclocks and uninstall ATI Catalyst control center.
