I am getting a BSOD when ever I view some picture or something. The graphics card is a ATI 3450 PCIExpress, Windows XP Home SP3 installed.


Error I get below -

Caused by: ati/dvag

The driver device got stuck in an infinite loop. This usually indicates problem with the device itself or with the device driver programming the hardware incorrrectly.
***STOP: 0x000000EA (0x85B74188, 0x862DA108, 0xF7C6DCBC, 0x00000001)

See if updating the drivers will help. They've just been updated to 10.12

Looks like it can be a memory, or overheating prob. Does the card have a fan on it?

Well I installed the old driver that came on the disk with the card and it has solved my problems that I was having. Strange how these things happen.

Card is like this
