Windows 7: Repeated BSOD/crashing issues

Repeated BSOD/crashing issues

Starting a week ago I've been crashing repeatedly. Sometimes its a BSOD, but most of the time the display freezes(though music or video game sounds will continue) until I manually hit the power. Upon starting up again the problem event is always BlueScreen. The crashes have followed no pattern so far.

Here is the necessary information as instructed in the sticky:

CPU, mobo, main HDD, and RAM are about a year and a half old

Hi and Welcome to SF!!!
Stop code 116 is usually related to graphic card. The first thing to try is to re-install the graphic card driver.
When upgrading your graphic driver you MUST remove all traces of the current driver. In order to do that we recommend using Guru3D - Driver Sweeper

When it is removed then download and install the fresh copy.

Read this article for more detail for more tests to try:

The best thing to try is to try another graphic card on your system to see if it make any differences.
