Atikmdag.sys BSOD - Vista x64 SP1

It seems that every time I log off Vista, then log back on, the graphics become corrupt (similar to artifacts due to overheating, I can assure you it's not though) and then shortly after I get a BSOD with atikmdag.sys. I know this is the ATI display driver, but what exactly is wrong with it and why is it only when I log off and then back on is when I see the error? Of course, BSOD leads to system restart and then it works fine. It's only when I restart then logon do I not see any issue.

  1. Try other drivers. All 'recent' ATI Radeon drivers including the latest 9.8 work fine with my two 4850's. Installing Vista 64 SP2 will 'fix' any prior SP issues the system may be experiencing

    Find the latest 9.1 driver for the Radeon 2400 series here. Choose your Operating system. I believe ,Net framework 2.0 must be installed before the driver will install. Google ,net framework 2.0 or search M$ for the download for you're OS. Be sure to install all M$ updates, especially the SP's. You failed to mention the OS used.

  5. Your MB has an integrated Intel GMA 3100 graphic controller. I would check in BIOS and disable that onbaord graphics controller. Have you tried gong into Safe Mode and installing the latest Catalyst driver?
