BSOD help - probably graphics card issue

Hello,

Lately my ACER laptop has been resetting itself randomly. This has happened during playing a game, surfing the net, watching a video etc. Laptop shuts down, opens up again but nothing comes up on the monitor. Several seconds later the same thing happens. I'm not pressing any buttons at this point but the laptop goes into the cycle of starting and shutting down until monitor shows up again...or, I'm guessing, when the graphics card successfully kicks in.

The reason I'm posting this here in the BSOD forums is that when windows starts the following error message comes up (in Turkish but I assume it won't be a problem for you guys to get the gist):

So I'm fairly sure this has something to do with the graphics card/driver, but not completely sure. I haven't tried anything yet, wanted to post it in here first. Hoping it's not purely hardware related. I've attached the BSOD file.

Regards.

You are right.

A stop ox116 is a display related issue. And you have the latest version of the display driver installed. So not altering it at the first time, but will do that too, if situation demands.

Make it sure that the hardware components are not overclocked.

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
Take a screenshot of the furmark window before closing it. Upload the screenshot for us. Also let us know if you have experienced any crash/BSOD and/or artifacts during the test.

Let us know the results.

Hi, thanks for your response.

Here's the speccy screenshot:

http://speccy.piriform.com/results/x...6brfaVSS8HCXA7

Stress test is attached. Ran it for 17 minutes, frankly I had no idea when it was going to finish (or whether there was a finish) so I took a screenshot and stopped it myself. I didn't experience any crashes. I assume this is probably not temp related then?

I forgot to mention in my first post: I've updated the NVDIA driver to the latest version after I first encountered the issue, hoping it would be an answer.

All those reports are fine.

Have you experienced any more BSOD after updating the nvidia driver?

Well, then try 347.25 WHQL, but do it as suggested 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
    • GeForce Experience
  • 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:

  • That means, Install the display driver and PhysX only, and nothing else.
See how it goes. Let us know for any further BSOD.
