ATI2DVAG.DLL BSOD and erratic behavior
UPDATE: It’s been quite sometime since this post and I must say the problem has gone away. I would strongly recommend updating your drivers if you experienced this problem.
I’ve been having quite some problems lately with my computer. Seems that every time I remote desktop into my computer, my ATI card (Radeon X300) would goes nuts and cause a BSOD (blue screen of death). This really sucks when I’m away because I have to get a co-worker to physically power off the machine and restart it for stuff to work again.
According to the BSOD information, the culprit seems to be the ATI2DVAG.DLL file. I did a little digging and noticed that my driver version was 126.96.36.19961, which wasn’t too bas since most of the people complaining about this problem had older drivers then me. I figured that maybe by chance ATI might have released a new driver (they are notorious for never updating there stuff).
Hence forth, I hopped on over to the ATI site and looked for a driver for my card. Wouldn’t you know it, they just updated the driver for the Radeon X300 (I’m talking literally 6 days ago). I’ve downloaded and installed the driver so now I’m at version 188.8.131.5264. Hopefully I won’t have this problem anymore.
I’ll have to wait awhile before calling this problem solved. You know how things always work great when you first install them and then go all screwy over time… hey, that sounds exactly like Windows
