Windows 7: BSOD.......desperate, please help!

BSOD.......desperate, please help!

Hi all.


I hope someone can help me, I have been struggling with this problem for 7 months now...

PC Specs:

Intel Core i7 920 2.67GHz (Cooler Master V8 cooler)
6 GB RAM DDR 3 Tripple Channel
Asus P6T Motherboard
870W PSU
Packard Bell Maestro 222Ws 23' LCD (using DVI, also tried HDMI)
1 TB Hard Drive
2 x (HIS) ATI HD5850's Crossfired
ATI Catalyst 10.8
Windows 7 Professional 64Bit
AntiVirus - BitDefender Total Security 2010
PC well ventilated and AC in room.

Problem:

Every time I start up a game, whether it be Just Cause 2, Crysis Warhead, Sonic & Sega All-Stars, Supreme Commander 2 or any other game, I get a BSOD. But instead of showing the blue screen or restarting, my screen displays a "No Signal" message and switches off, while my PC is still on. The only thing I can do is restart my PC manually. This happens sometimes after about 10 minutes of playing or even 30 minutes. And when I can play: smooth framerates at full graphics.

Reinstalled ATI Catalyst (from 9.10 to 10.8) but no luck. Even took out and reinserted the graphics cards. Also tried Regcure. No luck either.

I have attached the minidump + the screenshot that I took of my BSOD message

Thank you very much for helping me!

The VIDEO_TDR_TIMEOUT_DETECTED bug check has a value of 0x00000117. This indicates that the display driver failed to respond in a timely fashion.

either driver or card checking which now


edit

Could be either start with re-installing video driver. If not that then start looking at video card

When upgrading your graphic driver you MUST remove all traces of the current driver. In order to do that we recommend using http://www.guru3d.com/category/driversweeper/

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

This is not good.......

I've done exactly as you said: Uninstalled drivers and then used Driver Sweeper for the leftovers.
Now when I try to install the 10.8 ATI drivers, everything installs except the display drivers.
Why is this? Have I done something wrong? What can I do?

Hi -

I would suggest that you run Windows System Restore - choose a restore point prior to the ATI removal -
START | type rstrui

The bugcheck was 0x117 = video TDR time out, but factors other than ATI may have caused or assisted in the crash.

This 2007 Asus Cool 'n Quiet mobo utility driver has caused many Windows 7 systems to BSOD - update it -

Asus Support --> http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx

Slideshow for asio.sys update --> Asus mobo utility driver updates - Windows Live

Update Realtek Ethernet driver -
Code:

I suggest that you remove all virtual devices and security related apps - all pre-date Windows 7 RTM. Elby, Daemon, Alcohol, etc.. are known to cause BSODs in Windows 7 -
Code:

I would also recommend the removal of BitDefender Total Security 2010 - How to uninstall BitDefender

Reboot upon completion. Install MSE - http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/


If BSODs persist, run the Driver Verifier -- Driver Verifier - jcgriff2.com

Hi



Still been struggling for months.

I have come to a conclusion: With crossfire enabled, the "No Signal" thing occurs
But with only 1 HD5850 (either of the two) installed, there are NO problems.
So I know there's nothing wrong with the graphics cards themselves.
What could the problem be then?


I have attached the 2 latest minidumps. There might be clues in both of them.

And BSOD message is:




BCCode: 116
BCP1: FFFFFA8007FDD4E0
BCP2: FFFFF88003D703BC
BCP3: 0000000000000000
