I hate to have my first post be a "please help thread", but I have been searching for quite some time and have not made any progress. I have been getting the 0x116 (Video Driver
) crash ONLY while on Facebook. I have yet to receive a BSOD elsewhere. Some times I can stay on FB for over 10 mins without the BSOD, other times its ~30 seconds. I already ran the system diagnostic report; that found nothing.
For 90% of the time I have owned this laptop, I have not seen any problems. This only started a few weeks ago. I don't recall installing any software/hardware around that time. If you need any more info, please ask.
Note: I have the latest driver, tried reinstalling the latest driver, and using an older driver and didn't notice a difference.
Came with vista, installed 7 when it came out.
No other problems.
I have this page favorited and replies instantly sent to my email so I will be checking by quite a bit.
So I ran furmark as listed in the instructions in the link you provided and received the same bsod 0x116 I have been getting. It only took like 5 seconds from the beginning of the test. This doesn't sound like a temp problem to me because it didn't even have time to get up to temp. Am I mistaken? Any further advice? Thanks for your help so far.
Edit- I am also running the system file checker now.
Update- System file checker did not find any problems.
Also tried a bunch of different hardware monitoring software and none of which gave me the option to monitor my gpu temps. I am assuming I do not have the ability; or am I doing something incorrectly?
