Ive just gotten my pc back from 'repairs'

Good news: 116 error is GONE

Bad news: BSOD 101.....

What i could read on the Bluescreen was something about a clock and processor cores...

The changes to my pc where:
-Complete whipe of the drive
-windows 7 reinstalled
-275.33 nvidia driver installed
-java installed
-some minor programs ( office, anti virus, steam, google chrome, etc...)
-most of the updates (excluding one or 2 updates and SP1)

Please help :/

116 is video related, 101 CPU.

Bring it back.

Office is not minor

both 116 and 101 are hardware.

Had some time playing, going from an hour to 4 hours.
Stil crashing though
No error 101, still the same old 116.
Sending it back to customer support won't work as they will just send it back the way it was.
Here are dump files, just in case.
For all im guessing, it's indeed broken hardware.
Also is it true laptop parts can't be replaced?
If they can be, where?
(id rather spend around 200 euros on a new part then a whole new pc of 1000 euros)

Typically, laptop parts are replaced by replacing the whole motherboard, which usually costs around 400-500 euros. Have you tried an older driver for the video card?

The CPU can if the chipset is built into the mobo it cant. Do you have a video card or is it built in?

I have tried about 5 different driver versions. none did anything. since the laptop was completely reinstalled (software) im really doubting that this is a software problem.

Now that im thinking of it, my old desktop is having serious issues, but its running vista, so im guessing im not on the right forum for that right?

And to Zigzags question, i have no idea... (sorry)

116 is probably not a driver.

Well

I think we can make a conclusion.
The problem is not software, but hardware.
Im going to call a specialist repair service and get them to replace the part.
Probably the GPU and/or CPU. While im at it ill also install a additional RAM memory card.

What is curious though is that sometimes the game time varies from several hours to less then a minute before crashing.

So as final, Thank you all for the help and support.
Keep up the good work, for me this is a solved problem, as you managed to show me the problem
