"It's not a true crash, in the sense that the bluescreen was initiated only because the combination of video driver and video hardware was being unresponsive, and not because of any synchronous processing exception".

Since Vista, the "Timeout Detection and Recovery" (TDR) components of the OS video subsystem have been capable of doing some truly impressive things to try to recover from issues which would have caused earlier OSs like XP to crash.

As a last resort, the TDR subsystem sends the video driver a "please restart yourself now!" command and waits a few seconds.

If there's no response, the OS concludes that the video driver/hardware combo has truly collapsed in a heap, and it fires off that stop 0x116 BSOD.

If playing with video driver versions hasn't helped, make sure the box is not overheating.

Try removing a side panel and aiming a big mains fan straight at the motherboard and GPU.

Run it like that for a few hours or days - long enough to ascertain whether cooler temperatures make a difference.

If so, it might be as simple as dust buildup and subsequently inadequate cooling.

I would download cpu-z and gpu-z (both free) and keep an eye on the video temps Let us know if you need help STOP 0x116: VIDEO_TDR_ERROR troubleshooting

Windows 7 Pro 64 bit 6.1.7600 Build 7600

Well I've been everywhere now, and still haven't solved this issue. Went to Galaxy, and Nvidia, and I am not any closer to getting a solution than I was when we first started chatting about this.

So I noticed the IRQ's during a boot up, and managed to take a fairly clear picture of the screen with my camera. See attached.

I am wondering, actually more like totally grasping at straws here, if the 4 devices vying for time at IRQ 10 is causing the issue. It sort of makes sense, system is booting up, all of the devices are clamoring for service to get intialized:if in fact that's how windows works.

Maybe the video system connects on the first try, as sometimes happens, maybe an intermediate attempt in the 2-4 range is successful, and maybe it's successful on the 7th or 8th try as sometimes happens.

But that's why I am asking you.

It seems to be fairly reasonable. I am sure there is a way to service multiple devices on the same interupt, but maybe 4 is too many.

I am really wondering if there is a conflict, if 10 is the right IRQ for the video/display system, and if not how to change it.

Whatever it is, it seems fairly unique to my system.
