So I keep getting this BSOD, it flashs too quicky to get any other info oscreen except this.
But the story goes a little deeper. Yesterday I got a message from ATI control center that said the GPU (Radeon x1600 512, PCI express) had been reset, I shut off my computer for the day. I turn on my compter today and the monitor is set to 800x600 and is at 4-bit color, and no matter what I try to do I cannot change this. Every possible way to adjust the resolution fails.
I reinstall the ATI drivers I had downloaed when I got the card, roughly two months ago. SUCCESS! Oh wait, it works for around ten minutes and a few second after I open a torrent program I get a crash, and the BSOD above.
Restart, windows won't load, goes directly to BSOD. I restart in safe mode, works ok, reloaded the ATI Drivers (I can't seem to download the new ones anyone ever have that prob?). So now with the drivers installed I have the same old problem of 800x600 4-bit color that can' change, cept' now it won't go back to normal like it did before. I have since uninstalled the driver and all ATIO programs and am typing this in 1280x1084 32-bit but if I load the drivers I get a crash.
I had gotten the same BSOD about five months ago but it proved to be a faulty memory chip, the memory now is new. Here are my full stats.
