the bsod plagues me when i launch the game or just like that(once or twice).
different errors at the bottom of the screen like:
*** STOP: 0x00000116 (0xFFFFFA80057364EO, 0xFFFFF88004170F94, 0x0000000000000000, 0
*** atikmpag.sys = Address FFFFF88004170F94 base at FFFFF88004173000, Datestamp
STOP Errors are usually the result of a hardware malfunction or device driver issue. It is also possible to receive a Blue Screen Error due to bad system memory, malfunctioning power supply, components overheating, or hardware overclocked beyond its specification. In this case it looks as if it is your video driver that is causing the problem. Try either installing the latest driver from the manufacturers web site or if this doesn't work try an old driver like the one on the original instillation disk that came with the graphics card.
0x00000116. This indicates that an attempt to reset the display driver and recover from a timeout failed.
