I have vistax64 installed, just upgraded to phenomII 710, got BSOD.. traced
it to a chipset driver.. AMDDLL64.SYS..
dunno when/how it was installed, but believe it came with my motherboard
chipset drivers on the install CD:-/
Anyway the solution is simple, the driver is located in
\windows\system32\drivers and simply renaming it to ADMDLL64.SY_
cures the problem, and if you have to you can also uninstall it in device
manager, it gets flagged once the driver is renamed:-)
I cant be sure what package that driver came in, I installed a load of stuff
from Nvidia as well for physX and system tools, SLI etc
But I suspect it was in the chipset driver package from ASUS.. From the
looks of it this is an AMD file possibly distributed to motherboard
manuf's for AMD cpu motherboards..
I got the solution in part by googling the driver name... showed up in a web
forum where more than one poster had had problems and cured them
by removing/deleting the driver... Since I wasnt 100% sure at the time I
just renamed it:-)
Works for me.....
