Windows 7: BSOD on any Unreal Engine Game, error 0x00000116

BSOD on any Unreal Engine Game, error 0x00000116

Hello everyone
I'm in need of some help, everytime I play any game that uses the Unreal Engine (UT3, Batman AA, Borderlands, etc), my system gives the BSOD after 2-10 minutes, with the error 0x00000116, and something related to nvlddmkm.sys. After browsing a bit on this forum I discovered this thread.

After browsing for some solutions I made this, but it only causes the game to freeze, and not showing me the BSOD, so I suppose the error persists.

What can I do to solve this? I'm tired of being crushed by that sound and the BSOD
Also, my PC is never hot when this happens, I got a cooler that can keep it almost ice cold.
Sorry if I forgot something, I'll try to edit ASAP.

Thank you for your help!

EDIT: Forgot my specs,
i7 2670QM
NVIDIA GeForce 540m
6GB RAM

Welcome

Is this a new computer?
It could be that the video card is defective itself.
Did you try your graphic card on another computer, see how it performs there?
Did you try another graphic card on your computer?

Thanks

It's a couple months old. I don't think the card is defective, since there is a lot of people with this Unreal Engine-only problem.
I can't swap graphic cards between computers, because since my laptop is still on warranty, only the seller has the authorization to open it.

Thank you for your answer!

Are your games set to max settings?
Try lowering them or set back to defaults and see if the BSoDs occur.
Look for patches/updates on the game.

No, I never play at max settings. It even happens on the lowest setting, including 800x600 resolution or something similar.

Since all my games are on steam, they are always updated.
I'm actually considering finding my old XP CD and make a dual boot, since I read the error is on Vista and 7. You think it would solve the problem? I have no problem in changing the OS whenever I want to play a Uunreal Engine game.

Do you mean you're getting BSoD on XP too?

No, I couldn't even try because there are no drivers for my GPU on XP. I had to edit some advanced PC settings and I didn't want to take that risk.

Try these steps to install only the graphics driver without a control panel.

1.Download the preferred driver and save it to the desktop.
2.Double click the installer and you will see a screen where it will be extracted to, change that to your desktop.
3.Open Device Manager through Control Panel.
4.Expand Display adapters and right click the name for yours and choose Update Driver\Browse my Computer. Select the driver folder you just saved on the desktop. Click Next.
5. Your system should say "Windows has successfully updated your driver software".

If you get a window saying you already have the most current driver, go back to step 4 and choose Uninstall Driver software instead. Then restart from step 3.
