BSOD occurring during boot

Hello. I am getting frequent BSOD during boot, usually after the Windows logo appears. The computer is fine when it loads, it is only during the boot that this is happening. Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you.

My computer/windows specs are:

Windows 7 Professional K Service Pack 1 (64bit)
Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-2100 CPU @ 3.10GHZ
RAM is 4.00GB

Please help!

There are a lot of methods for solving this. Start by closely following the first three posts of STOP 0x116: VIDEO_TDR_ERROR troubleshooting and proceed through each step. Let us know if you need further help.

Did the TDR explanation and troubleshooting steps help?

Yes I read through the troubleshooting steps and found out that my video card as well as the hard drive was faulty. I have now replaced them and now the computer is BSOD-free!

Thank you for your help. This took a while for me because trying to save up for the replacements!

New BSOD: (During computer use)

I have experienced another BSOD, this time while I was using the computer.
When I was using the computer like any other day, I noticed it was running slower that it used to and suddenly crashed and got a BSOD.
After the crash the computer periodically pauses for a second.
Also I have a caution notice under 'Current Pending Sector Count' when I ran CrystalDiskInfo. Does this have anything to do with the BSOD?
Please help!
