Hi, I am reaching the end of my rope of patience here with my video driver. I tried to overcome this on my own with days of poring over message board posts, but nothing has worked. My problem is this, I don't know when it started but I really noticed it a month or two ago while playing The Witcher 2. I am playing a game, and it runs just fine, but then out of nowhere 1 of 2 things happen. Either the screen freezes on the image and automatically reboots the computer a few seconds later or the screen goes black and the same thing happens. Sometimes when this happens I get a whte screen saying Active Desktop Recovery next time I log in. This makes me reset the desktop wallpaper each time. I have tried a LOT of things to fix this. I was using a floor fan to keep my computer cool, so I thought the problem was overheating. So I took the cpu apart outside and cleaned it out and applied new thermal paste. The fan situation is normal again and things run much cooler, but still I get the BSOD. So I tried everything I could think of including. 1. Updated CCC to newest drivers, downgraded to older driver, uninstalled and re-installed drivers. 2. Run as Admin, disabled Avast, lowered graphic settings, unplug gamepad, try offline mode. 3. Tried setting the game.exe to a single core, and tried setting to high priority. 4. Set the GPU to stock settings, ran Memtest to no errors, ran defrag. No matter what I tried, still the same random BSOD. Finally I thought I had it figured out and did the following. 1. Log on Admin account and uninstall from Add/Remove. Then uninstall the adapter through device manager. 2. Reboot into safe mode, Run Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU), boot back into safe mode. 3. Look for left over ATI files, Here I had a problem where the computer automatically detected and installed the 6800 card]. I could still see the same old ATI files. 4. Restarted computer normally, installed the driver [I even tried the driver directly from HIS], restarted. 5. Tried gaming, and absolutely nothing has changed. I have ran WhoCrashed and everytime it is the Ati3duag.dll causing problems, except once when it crashed youtube and it was ati2 then. So now I have ran out of ideas, and implore the experts out there to help me figure this out please. I have this problem for: The Witcher 2, Dishonored, and Starcraft 2, so I know it is not the game itself. So far Torchlight 2 has ran without a single video crash.
