What is going on with this PC?

  1. I'm trying to fix my friend's PC. It blue-screens most of the time whenever DIrect3D or OpenGL is initiated, and I can't figure out why. I updated the video drivers, lowered the memory speed and loosened the timings, changed some settings around, all to no avail.

    I have a massive array of minidumps from all the BSODs that I can upload for you. They're attached to the post.

    Uninstall the ASUS enhanced video drivers. It's a known problem. You may need to reinstall the Nvidia drivers.

    BugCheck 1000000A, {16, 2, 0, 8050057c}
    Unable to load image atkosdmini.dll, Win32 error 0n2
    *** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for atkosdmini.dll
    *** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for atkosdmini.dll
    *** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for atkdisp.dll

    Probably caused by : atkosdmini.dll ( atkosdmini+1370 )

    Open Add/Remove Programs, look for a reference to the Asus Enhanced Drivers, and uninstall them.
    Restart

    Failing that, just update your Video drivers
    All done :)

    There was something about ASUS Gamer OSD, but nothing related to ASUS Enhanced Drivers. I deleted the OSD, I'll reboot and see what happens.

    Thanks Kimsland. I fixed it by uninstalling that ASUS Gamer OSD, and then by reinstalling the Nvidia drivers. :)
