Bsod

I've been getting the BSOD lately quite a lot, mainly while having two games or similar open, I was leaning towards graphics card, but I let you the experts decide.

Edit, sorry forgot system, Core i5 650, ATI HD 3870 4GB Ram running Windows 7 x64 premium.


Attached is the zipped report ect.

Any help would be greatly appreciated here.

"It's not a true crash, in the sense that the bluescreen was initiated only because the combination of video driver and video hardware was being unresponsive, and not because of any synchronous processing exception.

Since Vista, the "Timeout Detection and Recovery" (TDR) components of the OS video subsystem have been capable of doing some truly impressive things to try to recover from issues which would have caused earlier OSs like XP to crash.

As a last resort, the TDR subsystem sends the video driver a "please restart yourself now!" command and waits a few seconds.

If there's no response, the OS concludes that the video driver/hardware combo has truly collapsed in a heap, and it fires off that stop 0x116 BSOD.

If playing with video driver versions hasn't helped, make sure the box is not overheating.

Try removing a side panel and aiming a big mains fan straight at the motherboard and GPU.

Run it like that for a few hours or days - long enough to ascertain whether cooler temperatures make a difference.

If so, it might be as simple as dust buildup and subsequently inadequate cooling.

I would download cpu-z and gpu-z (both free) and keep an eye on the video temps Let us know if you need help STOP 0x116: VIDEO_TDR_ERROR troubleshooting

Ok, so I've been monitoring my video card temps and they are usually around 73 while playing games, which seemed quite reasonable to me. I've run a bootable memtest 86 on the memory and all was good. I also brought down the clock on my cpu to stock and it's still blue screening, my cpu temps are really low, like 50's, I have a very large heat sink.

I'm not really sure now what to do, I could try a format and fresh install, but that's a last resort as I have a lot of large and very annoying programs to install.

Any more ideas? Thankyou for your help.
