Do you have PS/2 connections into your motherboard? If so, you will need to get a PS/2 keyboard and enter the BIOS. To use a USB keyboard, you can use the PS/2 keyboard to change USB settings in the BIOS. Sometimes, you need to enable all USB drives, USB devices, etc. within the BIOS in order to use a USB keyboard.

If you do not have PS/2 connections to the motherboard, I am not sure how to proceed... Let us know if you do not.

Problematic software

  • We do not recommend automated driver update software. It often finds drivers for devices similar to but not exactly the same as the hardware actually on the system. This can lead to conflicts and blue screen crashes. If you need help finding driver updates for a certain device, please start a thread in Drivers - Windows 7 Forums instead of using software. Driver updates are not always necessary and some updates can actually decrease system stability rather than increase it, so it is usually better not to update unless a device or its driver is causing problems with the system. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Crashes are still 0x116. Have you checked the system's temperatures?

What do the CPU and GPU temperatures reach during idle?

During stress?
