memory dump

by BCs / November 22, 2010 5:06 PM PST

I have just started having a really annoying issue with my PC. It is going in to an Infinite loop and doing a memory dump, which means i have to constantly reboot.

The file in question is ATI2DVAG. i have upgraded the drivers from the web site but to no avail.

Any one got any ideas ?

I read about a memory dump and about a 'file in question'. But what's the link between these two?

Do you get a blue screen? If so, what is the error number and other details?
What does Eventlog tell you about this error?

I had the same problem with the Catalyst 10.11 and my HD 2600 XT card. Went back to Catalyst 10.10 and systme is once again stable.
