    I have a:
    -Pentium III
    -667 MHz CPU
    -512 MB of ram
    -Windows XP
    -ATI Radion 7000 Video card
    -Linksys Ethernet card


    Hi Everyone,

    I was just playing a Madden 2003 when the game stopped and I got the following BSOD message:

    STOP: 0x0000008E (0x0000005, 0xBFA0B67E, 0xEF615A34, 0x00000000)

    ATI3D1AG.DLL - address BFA0B67E base as BF9E0000
    Date Stamp: 3E0136C1


    From the ATI line, I am relatively sure this BSOD is linked to my ATI Radeon 7000 video card. WHAT DO I DO TO RESOLVE THIS PROBLEM?????????

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE HELP!!!!

    Thanks,
    Mark

    This is the first time I ever received this BSOD. The game is winXP compatible as well.

    Well, I would wait and see if it happens again. You know Window, strange things happen. It may never happen again, if it does then I would start trying to figure it out.

    Del,

    While I have never received this BSOD, the computer has shut off randomly in the past. I am inclined to think that this is all a result of my video card - perhaps the driver didnt install correctly. Is there a way to un-install the video driver and then re-install it?

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Hi jgc77,
    You are on the right track. Try looking here
    It references the nvidia card but I think it may be of some help.
