Derek

With the ATI Catalyst 8.1 or 8.5 installed, I was getting the error message
"Display driver atikmdag stopped responding and has successfully recovered"
error whilst playing games and Google earth, then blue screens appeared
eventually.

Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L
Intel Core 2 E8300 2.88Ghz
2G DDR2 800
ATI Radeon HD3690 256mb
1 Seagate 500G SATA II 7200 w/32mb
Samsung DVD-RW
Vista Ultimate SP1 32 bit


Anyone can help?

Yes use the Microsoft driver after you install the ATI one. It stops the
crashes and the BSOD

Hi Tony,

I tried to underclock the GPU frequency as mentioned in WarOfGenesis's
message, yet the problem persisted.A blue screen showed up again even when I
zoomed in Google Earth.

Can you tell me how to switch to Microsoft display driver?

Many thanks
Derek
