Windows 7: BSOD 0x116 AT START UP.

BSOD 0x116 AT START UP.

Hey..Again BSOD after a long time.This time is during start up without running Driver verifier as before.For a long time system was highly stable and problem just started.I was playing Half-Life 2 for some hours may be less than 2 hours.
My system Configuration is
INTEL CORE 2 DUO E7500 2.93GHZ
INTEL DG41WV MOTHERBOARD
XFX GT 240 1GB GDDR5
4 GB DDR3 1333Mhz

All drivers are latest and bios is pre latest(latest is quite unstable with my board,slow booting).I have uploaded both the image and BSOD Dump files.

The earlier problem was solved my a Microsoft Engineer.He told it is caused due to downclocking of RAM to 1066Mhz since my motherboard supports only upto
1066Mhz.The solution was either to insert a 1066Mhz ram or disable driver verifier.Since there is no shop selling 1066Mhz memory in our place.So only solution was to disable Driver verifier.

Driver Verifier is a testing tool and should not be routinely left on.
It's only for use after you've received a BSOD that indicates that it may be useful in identifying a problem driver.
Leave it off.

Suggestions for troubleshooting STOP 0x116 (and STOP 0x117) errors: STOP 0x116: VIDEO_TDR_ERROR troubleshooting

You only have 59 updates after SP1 - most systems have 70 or more after SP1. Please visit Windows Update and get all available updates.

The following info is just FYI, I've already addressed the issues that I saw in the above paragraphs:
3RD PARTY DRIVERS PRESENT IN THE DUMP FILES
- Create a System Restore Point prior to doing any of this. DO NOT mess with the drivers themselves - leave the Windows\System32\drivers directory alone unless we specifically direct you to it!
- Please either update the older drivers from the device manufacturer's website - or uninstall them from your system. Reference links are included below.
- DO NOT use Windows Update or the Update Drivers function of Device Manager.
- Please feel free to post back about any drivers that you are having difficulty locating.
- Windows Update exceptions may be noted below for Windows drivers.

Thankyou for the quick response.

When I do Windows Update,it says fully updated and no new updates for my PC.

I have done stress test and haven't got any problem.Temperature became almost constant around 80 degree C.At that time too,system was stable.

I think all drivers are updated.
(NVIDIA,REALTEK drivers).
Other drivers that you have mentioned ,I haven't even heard about such drivers like
amdxata.sys,MpFilter.sys.

How can I make sure those drivers are updated?

The listing of drivers that I provided is just a list of the 3rd party (non-Microsoft) drivers that were present in the memory dumps. This doesn't mean that they were causing a problem.

As for checking to see if they're updated - click on the links below and read the info on the drivers. Then visit the device manufacturer's website to get the latest drivers. If they're not available at the device manufacturer's website, then try the PC manufacturer's (OEM) website.

To check drivers that aren't listed above, check the drivers in C:\Windows\System32\drivers against my Driver Reference Table here: Driver Reference Table (it has a search function just above the table). Do the oldest first and you'll see what's what.

If it's not the video card that's the problem, then I'd have to wonder about the motherboard.
Can you borrow another, known good video card to test with (or test your video card in another system)?



Run all of the memory tests (MemTest and Prime95) on my Hardware Diagnostics page - along with all the video tests (there's 3 of them). CPU test won't hurt either, just in case there's a problem there.

I am currently running Video Memory Stress.Ran Furmark for a long time.No artifacts were found but the system was a bit slow.GPU-Z showed that 99% of GPU is running.

I can give you a few details before this issue started.

I have another motherboard ASUS P5G41T-MLX incase if current board gets damaged.So I have heard that if board is not used for a long time,board will get some problem.So just for checking the board,I uninstalled all the chipset,graphics,sound drivers and then installed new board and installed drivers again.Board is working well and I got Windows 7 deactivated and cannot be activated.So uninstalled drivers again and installed old board and installed it's drivers again.Actually drivers are same(same intel chipset driver,graphics and sound,except LAN).

I had installed Oracle 10g for my learning purpose and found system slow in start up.So I uninstalled it and deleted related files and registries.

Then I installed Half-Life 2.The game worked fine at full settings.It is an old game so my card can run the game at full.The BSOD started after the day I installed the game.I was playing half-life before the problem with no errors.After playing the game in the afternoon,I shut down the system safely.After 2-3 hours I switched on the system and GOT 1ST BSOD.Then I booted again and booted normally without any bsod again.At this I sent error report to Microsoft and started playing the game again for 1 1/2 hour.At that time,my father wanted to check his gmail and I quit the game and gave him the system for 30 min.After that I just wanted to restart to know if it again triggers BSOD.At this time too,I got the same BSOD.Then I came here.After posting this,again I played it for 2 hours.And restarted.No BSOD till now.

Sorry for a long "story".I think this may help you to identify the cause.If not ,Sorry if I am violating the rules and regulations of sevenforums.

UPDATE:Video Memory Stress Test completed without any errors.

I ran Prime95 for around 2-3 hours and found no issues.CPU temp became almost constant 60-63 degree C.Is it safe?Besides the system was so stable and I was able to do net surfing while Prime95 was running in the background.Looks like my CPU is a hero.

A very strange thing happened.I decided to uninstall all drivers I have installed and to reinstall it freshly.When I uninstalled NVIDIA HD Audio driver,system became hang and my mouse stopped responding.Suddenly Windows displayed that it is installing various motherboard drivers(USB drivers,SATA drivers,PCIE drivers,SMBus etc (CHIPSET drivers that I have installed before).So I naturally thought that after changing the motherboard ,perhaps I forgot to install chip set drivers and system ran with Microsoft's chip set drivers.Display,audio and LAN I installed manually.When 1st BSOD occurred,I thought perhaps it is due to Microsoft's chip set drivers and I installed Intel Chip set drivers.And Nvidia HD Audio driver prevented it's installation.That's why when I uninstalled NVIDIA HD audio driver,Intel chipset drivers are installed.

I am just guessing that things described above is the problem and Intel drivers(Microsoft Corporation) are the culprit.Can it be true?

OK, it appears that the video is stable.
It also appears that the motherboard chipset drivers are having issues.

How long did you run the system with the P5 motherboard installed? Was it stable? Any BSOD's?
It really doesn't matter about the activation - as long as you can reactivate when you put the original motherboard back in. The activation may become an issue if you have to replace the motherboard.


So, it's most likely either the chipset drivers (less likely) or it's the motherboard (more likely).
Testing with the P5 motherboard will give you an idea, but eventually you'll have to reactivate Windows.

Good luck!

P5 Motherboard I put only for not more 30min.It was a bit slow at first but later after installing drivers,it became normal.I think so,may be chip set drivers.I mean improper installation.So is it necessary to install drivers only after chip set drivers?Why always Microsoft's drivers are culprits for some BSOD's?My friend had too problem when he bought a new 9500GT and Windows itself installed Microsoft's WDDM 1.1 and he got a memory fault BSOD while playing games. Simply asking,why they are still releasing drivers?

Anyway it is a good news that today there were no BSOD till now.Even after playing half-life 2.

In general, drivers should be installed in the order that the system uses them. Chipset first, then storage, then video, then others.

Microsoft's drivers generally aren't at fault. What happens most often is that they do something that causes problems with other, older drivers already installed on the system. For example, if an older driver wasn't designed for Windows 7, and worked fine in Vista - it will work OK for a while. But eventually, a Windows 7 update will ask it to do something that it wasn't designed for (or wasn't designed properly) and that will cause a problem.

Also, Microsoft accepts drivers for Windows Update from the manufacturer of the device (and doesn't require testing). If the driver is bad, then people blame Microsoft - even though the driver was provided by someone else.

Today I had no bsods till now.So that chipset driver installation was the issue right?Looks like computer is very stable now.
