Pconsoles - your solution worked! Thanks! My issue was that during the driver install is when the atikmdag.sys was BSoDing me...
Oddly enough, it says my driver is showing AMD Radeon HD 5000 Series... but I have AMD Radeon HD 6550M... What's up with that?

Hmmm, I did a bit of research and it seems that your HD 6650M is based from the desktop HD 5000 series. I don't think you need to be concerned since you said it works just fine.

I am concerned about this issue as well. I have a Lenovo y460p that I recently switched to a solid state drive copying the old drive block for block. Since making the change my fan seems to really crank up when performing nearly any task from simple, to advanced.

Looking through my computer for a possible simple fix, I noticed that my graphics driver was displaying as AMD Radeon HD 5000 Series while the computer came equipped with an AMD Radeon HD 6550M. The reason it concerns me so much is, I have recently noticed a quality drop in video playback, game play, and even text appearance on several displays.

I know for a fact that before having the computer repaired by Lenovo, around 1.5 years ago (MOBO/RAM/etc... replacement), the driver was displayed as AMD Radeon HD 6550. I have not done much to research the issue as of yet because now there are several concerns raised, did Lenovo swap out my graphics card for a lesser model, is the fan ramping problem related to this in any way, and does it have anything to do with switching to an SSD?

I was getting this error once everyday since 3 months ago especially on first power up. Two days ago my psu blew up on power up. I got myself an over the top psu (Seasonic Platinum 860w) and no more errors.

The previous psu was a Xilence 800w psu and it worked perfectly for more than 3 years.

So if you are getting this error, I suggest that you check your psu's voltages while under a certain load and if necessary, get yourself a better quality psu.

Hi everyone. I cant see this solution on link. I think link is broken. What is the solution? Can you explain me? And I have 6500 series, but my driver is showing 5000 series too.

Download the 13.9 driver from here then use AMD Uninstall Utility to remove all traces of your current driver, CCC etc. Reboot and install the 13.9 driver. NOTE: When installing choose 'Advanced' or 'Custom' (whichever option is available, just not Express) and uncheck everything except the video driver.

A common cause of a BSoD is an overheating CPU. Check it's temperature when using hardware acceleration, Catalyst Control Center/AMD Settings, converting files, or anything else that could possibly cause your CPU to work harder. Anything above 80 degrees celsius (176 F) is too hot.

If it IS getting too hot, check that your thermal paste hasn't dried up. If the paste is ok but your CPU is still overheating, then you'll have to get a better cooler.
