So i was just playing warframe on my pc and a bsod decided to show up ,now i immediately decided to download bluescreenview to see what the prob was and it was a atikmdag.sys bsod .. now i can see from other forums that this is a graphics driver related problem , can any one tell me if this is in anyway a serious problem or that i should be concerned at all, btw i checked for latest drivers and  i have them installed already, my gpu is Radeon 7770 


also, when the bsod showed up it wasnt like any other that i had seen it was just scrambled and kept making that sound that it does , just sayin if it would be helpful 

thanks in advance :)

Hi,

What security software is installed and is it current? Have you run any scans? Have you tried to do a control panel uninstall, reboot and reinstall of the graphics drivers?

Keep us posted

Hi,

The choice is yours

A control panel uninstall, reboot and reinstall can't hurt

Using a complimentary free scanner like Malware bytes Antimalware or Super Antispyware will give you a second opinion scan to help keep your system clean. Please use only the free versions as the others can conflict with your installed security program.

Keep us posted

It would be wise to remove beta drivers. As stated "BETA" means under testing, so therefore bug might appear at any point of time etc...So yeah...

beta is only good if your are testing

otherwise stick with released for your production work
