Windows 7: BSOD at random times, idle or in-game (many different errors)

BSOD at random times, idle or in-game (many different errors)


Im new on this forum and i hope i do this the right way.

Ever since i built my computer, (about a year ago) i have gotten at least one bluescreen per week or more.
I have never really cared about it until now. Now, my computer tends to crash and then it gets stuck on the
"bios bootup screen". If i then restart my computer it all goes back to normal but the computer crashes again after 2-5 minutes in windows.

I would love if someone could help me solve this problem.

It is a stop 0x116, which is a display related BSOD.
