Hey all, been trying to figure this one out. Built a new AMD/ATI based system. Running Windows 7 x64. And have been getting BSODs while playing World of Warcraft. I was hoping perhaps someone could help pinpoint the problem. I'm leaning to the ATI Drivers. Graphical and Chipset I'm not sure. No overclocking or heat issues. I have tried multiple different fresh installs to try to solve it. And been reading up on many forums with others with ATI BSOD issues. Ive taken out my fail Sound Blaster sound card and still have the issue. Have also tested the RAM with MemTest, have ran Prime95 stable.

Windows 7 x64
AMD 965BE @ Stock Freq
Gigabyte GA-770TA-UD3 BIOS F2
OCZ AMD Black Edition 2x2GB 1600Mhz 8-8-8-24 @1.65 Stock Speed
ATI Radeon HD5770 @ Stock Freq
Realtek Integrated Sound.
Corsair 750watt PSU

A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage
to your computer.

The problem seems to be caused by the following file: atipmdag.sys

SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION

If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen,
restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow
these steps:

Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed.
If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer
for any Windows updates you might need.

If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware
or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing.
If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart
your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then
select Safe Mode.

Technical Information:

*** STOP: 0x0000003b (0x00000000c0000005, 0xfffff88004ccc6d6, 0xfffff88003a897f0,

Any more info needed please post. Thanks all. :)

Also all the voltages to the hardware is where it should be. ie: for the RAM running at 1600Mhz 8-8-8-24 @1.65. Set to 1.66v closes to 1.65 I can get without going below.

hello
0x0000003b usually is linked to driver error even if you fresh install a driver try it again.
use driver sweeper

downloads.guru3d.com/Guru3D---Driver-Sweeper-(Setup)-download-1655.html

first uninstall
restart
run driver sweeper just to be sure
restart again

download and install the newest driver from the web site , don't use the old one from the cd

Hey thanks for the fast response and support. I am in the process of taking your advice. Will play World of Warcraft today and see if I still receive the BSOD. I am with you on the dump info. Since I only get the BSOD when the HD5770 is processing graphics and not while running Prime95 or MemTests.
