Windows 7: BSOD - playing lotro - bccode: 116

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
BSOD - playing lotro - bccode: 116

OS: Win7 Ultimate x64

The issue is intermittent and I have yet to be able to consistently recreate the problem using stress test apps. I can usually get a few hours up to a couple of days with no issue, but eventually the pc will freeze/hang or bsod during 3d applications. Occasionally the display adapter will 'recover' when in a 2d environment, but this is rare(or I'm just not around when/if it happens).

Things I've tried:

Updating drivers as well as rolling back to old drivers for both Mobo(MSI K9N2 SLI Platinum Model: MS-7374 nforce chipset) and Video Card(XFX 9600 GSO 768mb nvidia) trying to find a good set. Currently running latest drivers for both.

BIOS updated to latest

Power Supply swapped out and then put back when the pc continued to crash.

Pulled RAM and tried different configs of the two 2gb sticks looking for a bad stick or bad slot. I got the pc to run for a few more days without a crash on one stick, but it eventually locked up. Back to running both sticks in slots 1 and 2.

I think I may be looking at a bad video card, but without a spare one to test, I've been trying everything else before going out and buying one. Thanks for any help with this. If I can get a definitive cause of the problem before I start throwing money into random replacement parts that would be great.

All the dumps are blaming the nvidia graphics drivers, the driver list you uploaded says the driver date for that driver is 15 May 2012, try uninstalling them and installing the latest drivers from nvidia's site.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Thank you for the feedback z3r010. I was running xfx's latest vid driver(whql version, I've tried Nvidia's latest whql as well) for the card, but now updated to the latest beta driver from Nvidia. I still crashed in Lotro though. The pc locked up and I had to do a hard reset, so I don't think any dumps were created. I'll try to get a solid bsod and a file dump and upload it at that point. But so far, the pc has similar symptoms as before.

Bad PCI-e x16 slot

Moved my Graphics Card into the other PCI-e slot (only 8x) and haven't BSOD'd or had any other major issues. Looks like a bad 16x main slot.

Thanks again and hope this solve sheds some light on what the log files etc. were saying.
