Hello, I'm having quite the problem, when ever I do anything that really uses my Asus 4890 my system crashes. Sometimes Windows 7 can recover the driver . . . but if it doesn't my computer blue screens. I know the video card isnt bad because I used my old my old Evga 9500gt 1gb and my computer crashed somemore. Its not the drivers I have tried updating them and I get still have the crashing problem when I boot to my XP harddrive. I also have updated my motherboard drivers, and have tested my ram and cpu with Prime 95. Oh and I have tried to underclocking my 4890, and turning my fan settings on 100%.
I would not use the latest driver. I would user 10.3 or 10.4 as they are the most stable right now. Use the Catalyst control center unistall feature to remove all ATI software, then run driversweeper just in case, and then check all your folders to make sure no ATI folders or files left.
Then install 10.4.
No luck with 10.4 following the steps you provided, does anyone else have ideas?
I noticed I was getting an Bsod error Atikmag.sys, or something similar. Next time I get the Bsod I will be sure to write it down.
I am getting Bsod error "Atikmag.sys every once and awhile, but I'm also getting "Bug_Code_Usbdriver" error. I wouldn't think the two are connected, but maybe they are? Any ideas?
