BSOD playing Skyrim, 116...something. Game keeps crashing only 2min in

Hi
So I have tried alot of different things. Last night i played maybe for a couple of hours and when I woke up this morning and wanted to play it kept crashing over and over again. Sometimes into blue screen sometimes just freeze and I had to reboot.

So my question really is: Is there anybody who would take their time to help me out?

"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

To be honest I am really bad at reading of these measurements. I downloaded both of them and I am looking at the temp. It says GPU 46 C. Do you mean i should just take off the side panel and clean the fans? And is 46 C bad or good. Help a fella out here!

46C isnt bad at idke what does the temp climb to when gaming?

Usually this BCC is related to heat, power, or a driver.

Take the side of the case off and point a house fan at it. make sure it is carefully cleaned with compressed air

At least check out the insdie of the case for anything that doesnt look right.

It seems to be rising to approx. 55C - 60C give and take. I dusted it now, so do you think if i keep it cool there should'nt be any problems? Seems weird since I've got 4 Cool master fans inside my case. Any idea? (add: 70C Ingame)

Doubt it is those temps.

If you still have BSOD's upload the DMP files to us

Well as I was trying thee game moving around, i tabbed out and checked the GPU-z and as i tabbed it went from 70C to 55C (Windows Screen). Note: Only this game gives me BSOD's.
ANd got a blue screen as I was in Windows checking the GPU.

Ok so I now tested the Furmark program and it went all the way up to 83C. Having my computers side panel open doesn't seem to work.
