BSOD bug check code 0x00000116

I've had the BSOD crash for a couple of months. Now its pretty regular multiple times a day, even when I leave my computer on sleep. I've researched a few threads and have done some attempts to fix on my own, but no help. I thought my problem was with NVIDIA GEForce G210 drivers, but I've updated them all and still no help. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I work out of my home on computer, and I just got BSOD while working, not good!

0x116 bugchecks are generally caused by drivers or hardware (GPU).
Your drivers are up to date so I would recommend downloading and running furmark.

Run it for at least 30 minutes.

Follow these instructions on how to run Furmark.

Ran furmark

Ran furmark. The 1st time it ran for about 1 1/2 minutes then temp went too high and the test automatically stopped. Tried to test again but the test would never even begin, each time including the 1st, I received the following error along with a link to NVIDIA website.

"NVIDIA Open GL driver lost connection with display driver due to exceding windows timeout limit and is unable to continue. Error 7."

That sounds like a GPU failure, I would replace it.

I understand. Is there anything I can do in the interim? Revert back to an older driver or anything you would suggest? I dont game, just need to keep it up and running for work, other videos etc I can do without for now. Thank you.

You can try reverting back to an older driver but I don't think that is the issue.
It's worth a shot but make sure you create a restore point before altering drivers, follow these instructions.

Sir,
I ordered a new card and received a broken one (long story). Purchased a brand new one that just arrived. Now the computer wont boot. I either get a "insert boot device and reboot", or it just stays on the screen that gives you an "esc" option that takes you back to the reboot or the F9, F10 & F11 options. There comes apoint where it stays stuck on this screen and it wont accept any options. What should I do?

What is your new card?
Is your power supply good enough for your card?

The card is a Gigabyte nvidia GeForce 210. It says compatible with PCI-E 3.0 motherboard running at PCI-E 2.0 speed. Power reqs are minimum 300W or greater pwr supply with minimum 12V current rating of 18A. I dont know how to check if my computer's power supply supports it. The bad card is slightly bigger, and the fan is as well than the new one. I reinstalled the bad one to see if I could get it to at least boot, and the indications are the same as with the new card, does not seem to get past the "insert boot device and reboot" screen.

You disk drive might be failing or your OS is corrupt.
When you can get into your computer run these tests.


Run a Disk Check to scan for errors

Note   Note

Afterwards go into an Elevated Command Prompt (Run as administrator) and type in sfc /scannow
If it finds errors reboot and run the scan two more times


Run SeaTools to see if your HDD or SSD is failing

Post back the results.
