This desktop is use as a dedicated server to capture content from our four Toshiba webcams in our facility. It came with P Media Center and is periodidly updated with MS updates. It's been used for five years and has run without a problem.

Today it displayed the BSOD with ATI2DVAG at the bottom. If I reboot, it dumps. I went into safemode and went to ATI for an update to it's Radeon 8300 adaptor and it downloaded a legacy updater. The updater couldn't find a device to update (probably because of safe mode).

Any suggestions?
