You could try this

but I think that the others are right about the Video drivers. If your pagefile is a standard setup it should do the minidump but I have seen this before with Video.

Disable ATI options

by -Q-240248 In reply to IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL Bl ...

Try disabling Triple-Buffering in the ATI control panel. You can disable some other features to troubleshoot, but start with that one.

Already Disabled

Yea, triple buffering was already disabled.

Concentrate on the driver

by -Q-240248 In reply to Already Disabled

Did you install the 8.10 hotfix?

http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_catalyst.aspx?p=xp/radeonx-xp

It's your driver, like someone else previously stated. If patching doesn't work, uninstall all ATI drivers and freshly install the latest version with hotfix, or go to an older, more stable version.

ATI....

by ---TK--- In reply to IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL Bl ...

I had close to the same issue's with the 3850 model. It boiled down to blowing away all of ATI's drivers, and reinstalling ONLY the driver, and not the utility, that helps you "tweak" your card. Also after that I went into services.msi and disabled one of the ATI services. I forget which one off hand, but there should only be two listed.

The hardware that ATI's coming out with is sweet, however their drivers are sucking hardcore.
