Windows 7 Enterprise 64 Bit
BSOD playing full screen games, error 0x00000116

Random computer lockup to BSOD at random times while playing games in fullscreen mode. I've updated my video drivers with a full uninstall with driver sweeper but the crashes continue. I've also run a memory test and believe that my memory is fine. Any further assistance with solving this problem would be greatly appreciated!

Windows 7 Enterprise, 64bit
Original installed OS
Full Retail

System age: 8 months
I have not reinstalled the OS

Intel Core i7-2600k

I've attached the information requested in the FAQ thread - if there's anything else I can supply to help solve the issue, please let me know.

Thanks in advance for any advice you folks can give.

vi) Clean them, head into Windows without internet and install the driver you've downloaded previously

DX-files // rendering

When the Graphic Driver is blamed, we usually ask people to check up on their Direct-X files. Option one is that it could be the Direct-X files. Option two is that it could be a part of the Windows system files, as Direct-X is a part of that. To be one the safe side, update your Direct-X files.

Yeah it's been doing it every once in a while, usually after a few hours of continuous playing , games it's done it on so far are; Witcher 2 and GTAV. I have a feeling it's either the GPU itself or the beta driver I'm using, but I want to be sure first. thanks in advance for the help.
