The Blue Screen of Death (also known as Blue Screen of Death or BSOD) caused more problems than we could ever count. One such blue screen error is VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE (ATIKMPAG.SYS).
This error occurs when you try to play a video file, play a game, or do anything else related to your computer’s video output.
Instead of working normally, your computer displays a blue screen with an error message like “VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE (atikmpag.sys)“. It then reboots, but the problem does not resolve itself. Depending on the brand of your video card, the error may have a different name.
