Windows 7: BSOD while playing games with medium-level graphics

BSOD while playing games with medium-level graphics

Hi,

I have recently run into a problem, where my PC goes into standby, with the sound getting all messed up while playing games that require even just a little bit of GPU, just before turning off and giving me a BSOD message.

I have also discovered that my GPU's (Gefore GTX 550 Ti) fan doesn't seem to rev up by itself, so I had to download MSI Afterburner to regulate fan speeds manually.

I've had this PC since Autumn, so it's a real shame that it's already having problems.

Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.256.1
Locale ID: 1061

Additional information about the problem:
BCCode: 116
BCP1: FFFFFA800B4ED4E0
BCP2: FFFFF8800FC74E2C
BCP3: FFFFFFFFC000009A
BCP4: 0000000000000004
OS Version: 6_1_7601
Service Pack: 1_0
Product: 256_1

Are you overclocking? As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings.

Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

Install the NVIDIA DRIVERS 314.22WHQL only.
  • Uninstall All nvidia items in Control Panel > Programs and features
    • 3D Vision Control Driver
    • 3D Vision Driver
    • Graphics Driver
    • HD Audio Driver
    • PhysX
    • nvidia Update
    (Are you using nvidia chipset drivers? If so, dont uninstall anything other than those are listed).
  • Now follow Drivers - Clean Left over Files after Uninstalling
  • Download 314.22 WHQL. While installing, Select Custom (Advanced) install. In the next page, follow this settings:

Let us know the results. But, using a GPU with a not-properly-working fan is always bearing a risk of stop 0x116.

I haven't really gone out of my way to overclock anything specific, so I'm guessing that's not it.

I uninstalled everything Nvidia related and did a clean sweep of any display drivers. Installed the driver you provided and after about 15 minutes of game time in FIFA 14, my PC shut down as usual.

I'll try to run Speccy for a few hours.

So I've been using Speccy for a while. The processor doesn't seem to heat up at all, but the graphics card seems to gradually rise in temps. I've tried using Afterburner to manually set the fan speeds, but even when I manage to keep the temp at a steady 55C, the PC still randomly shuts down.

EDIT: Also, I'd like to add, that my GPU's voltage seems to be +0.024V. That seems really low.

Is there any more BSODs?

Yeah, it still gives me the same 116 BSOD.
