BSOD when playing games

whenever i use the comp to play movies browse the net or do anything except for playing games it works fine
but as soon as i try to play a game the time varies but at some point it will crash i belive this is something to do with the video card drivers,

specs:
CPU: AMD phenom II x6 1055T
GPU: SApphire HD 6770
RAM: 4gb kingston ddr3
Mobo: Asrock extreme 3
PSU: power & Cooling silencer 750 watt quad blue

crash dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\010913-36301-01.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: atikmdag.sys (atikmdag+0x327F0E)

This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem.
A third party driver was identified as the probable root cause of this system error. It is suggested you look for an update for the following driver: atikmdag.sys (ATI Radeon Kernel Mode Driver, ATI Technologies Inc.).

  1. hows your cpu and gpu temps? is your cpu overclocked?
  2. nothings overclocked
    37 celcius idle
    67 celcius idle
  3. if gpu is 67 at idle then once its under load it does esplain things. check the temps you wrote and write it one more time for both cpu and gpu

    best
    revro
  4. Woah 37 isn't great for your CPU but 67 idle is terrible. Use afterburner or evga precision to get an OSD to look at your temps. I bet they top 100c
  5. i bet u are overheating too
  6. yeah clean out the case its overheating
  7. Have had the side of the comp case off for several months now, GPU and CPU fan both look clean i just took out the Graphics card, when i put it back in and booted up for the first time it had a red light on so i turned off and startup again then it booted fine

    Now its idling at 60
  8. please write exact temperatures
    cpu idle x load y
    gpu idle z load w

    and with open case, do you live somewhere tropic?

    thanks

  9. \\sn open case will introduce a crap ton of dust. Keep it closed. Maybe new thermal paste in need and a thorough heatsink clean.
  10. CPU: idle 37 celcius
    GPU: idle 67 celcius

    I can't get underload temps because as soon as i try to play a game or run furmark it crashes, yes open case i live in the philippines 35~37 celcius room temp
  11. That means you GPU will crash as it's too hot. Clean out the dust and get something to cool it
  12. Just found out that the fan is not working, when you first turn the machine on the fan goes round a couple of turns then just stops any ideas?
  13. make sure you card is secure, and the 2 pin fan connector is connected properly, also check if you have any 6 pin pice connections as well
  14. fixed fan downloaded msi afterburner and set the speed at 100%
    now idles at 40 and underload at 65max is this normal?
  15. 65 underload with 100% is normal, but loud......does the fan work on auto? if not set it around 40% itll cool it down nice and keep it at a descent DB noise level
  16. fan was working fine last night but now fan stopped again it just keeps twitching trying to start
  17. Last night fan was working but it kept throttling fast and slow is this normal even though it is set to 100%

    GPU-Z identifies card as a 5770 WTF and all other sofware afterburner kombustor etc
    how can i fix this flashing a new bios? maybe this is the cause of the fan not working
  18. how long have you owned this thing?
  19. 1yr 8 months approx
