Blue screen of death on startup

February 19, 2013 at 01:10:59
Specs: Windows 7

So, I'm getting the blue screen of death every time I start my computer, but it only appears after the "starting windows". In the blue screen of death, right near the "technical information" it says:

*** STOP: 0x00000116 (0x87900008 (This one switches on every startup), 0x90707068, 0x00000000, 0x00000002)

*** atikmpag.sys - Address (Constantly switches) base at (constantly switches), 4dae3541

Also, I see quite a lot of white dots (or lighter than the background) when I'm on the wery first step of turning the computer on, on blue screen of death and everywhere else which isn't on startup. So, could anone help me out?

Sound's like something with the ATI drivers:

Copy & paste the dump (.dmp ) file onto your desktop & then upload it to a site of your choosing or use Image Uploader. Post the link please.
Minidump file is located in C:\Windows\Minidump
Minidump file is located in C:\Windows\Minidump
Kernel memory dump is located in C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP
Startup and Recovery Settings

If the folders are empty > Right click on My Computer and select Properties.
Then select Advanced system settings Tab on the left menu.
Under the Startup and Recovery section, click on Settings.
Make sure "Write an event to the system log" is checked and "Automatically Restart" is unchecked. In the drop down menu under "Write Debugging Information," select Small memory dump (64KB or 128 KB) press OK and OK again.
Now next time the comp has a problem, get the EXACT error message off the screen & see if there is a .dmp file in the Minidump folder.
If it is still empty, repeat the process, but change > Small memory dump (128 KB) to > Kernel memory dump.
If a .dmp file is produced, upload it to a site of your choice or, use Image Uploader. Give us the link.

HeavensWolf, Thanks a million for posting the blue screen error information. You don't know how many times people do NOT include that in their post...just saying they get a Blue Screen.

What is the brand and model number of the computer in question? Like response #1 stated...the error is leading towards the graphics driver.

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions 7 Golds
