BSOD on uninstall AMD Drivers RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to update my AMD video Drivers and when I try to uninstall all amd drivers in uninstall programs I get a BSOD during video driver uninstall every time. When it reboots it gives you the start in safe mode or start normally screen, chose normal then reboots and get startup repair screen and then system restore and back to normal. So I'm unable to update my drivers, any help would be much appreciated.

  • Have you tried uninstalling them in Safe mode?

  • We do need the actual DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.  


    If you are overclocking (pushing the components beyond their design) you should revert to default at least until the crashing is solved. If you dont know what it is you probably are not overclocking.

    You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

    To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.  


    The procedure:
    * Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
    * Zip up the copy (compress them)

    *Please upload them to a file sharing service like Skydrive or"Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.


    Link for how to  upload below.
    To ensure minidumps are enabled:
    * Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
    * Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
    * Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
    * Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
    * Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
    * OK your way out.
    * Reboot if changes have been made.
    Please also run MSinfo32 and upload the output as well.
    To run MSinfo32 please go to start>run>MSinfo32
    Go to "file" "save" and upload the saved file with the DMPS
    System specs are extremely useful so please include whatever you know.

    Blue Screen View & Who Crashed are often wrong and should only be used in an emergency...

  • I haven't tried to uninstall in safe mode yet and I'm not overclocking at all. Here's a link to 2 crash dump files I have only tried twice since it blue screened both times.
