ati2dvag.dll causes blue screen with infinte loop

#1 Post by WPWoodJr » Thu Mar 20, 2008 1:12 pm

Recently on my T60p I've been getting a blue screen every few days which blames the driver called ati2dvag.dll as being in an infinite loop. Just before the blue screen the screen actually freezes for 10-20 seconds. Has anyone else experienced this? Know how to fix it? Please? :-)

have you done anything like updatingn the driver, recently..
or, even, made ANY change ton the OS or applications..?

in my experience, errors like this that just suddenly start happening usually point to some hardware issue..

how about heat..?

any remaining warranty..?

I have the latest ATI driver from System Update, I loaded it on 2/17. I don't think its heat because I ran a graphics benchmark which raised the temperature on the GPU to 103 degrees C without any issues.

Perhaps I should see if I can roll back the driver.

I got this machine on EBay with a 3 year warranty, not sure how good it is though.

This blue screen has been around for awhile with no agreed-upon solution. The most popular one seems to be this: http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic15393.html which involves replacing the driver on the PCI bridge with a generic "standard PCI-to-PCI bridge", however this fix makes no sense to me and I don't know what it would be affecting. Any thoughts?

I had the ati blue screen error on a new T42p years ago and tried everything here, and Google. Wound up getting a new machine through warranty. I hope you have better luck :)
