Windows 7: BSOD while browing or playing videos and games Error 0x00000116

BSOD while browing or playing videos and games Error 0x00000116

Recently my laptop (Lenovo Y560 w/ ATI mobility HD5730) started getting crashes. It gets BSOD (Error code 0x00000116) on playing videos or games. I can't even open a flash enabled website wthout getting a freeze or BSOD.

Laptop starts normally but once it gets a BSOD ,screen starts showing weird patterns on it and then again crashes just after boot up screen and this goes in a loop until I turn off my laptop and start it again after 5-10 minutes. After which its starts normally without any lines or patterns on screen.
I have already tried reinstalling ATI driver using driversweeper, but it hasn't resolved the problem.

I just want to know whether this is a hardware problem or a software issue.

Dump files and screenshots of screen after getting first BSOD are attached.
They are in this order -
2- Choice screen
3- Weird alphabets screen that lasts for 2-3 seconds
4- Boot up screen

Thanks in advance :)

PS - Sorry for bad English. :/

Can you update the display driver either from AMD's site or from Lenovo's site?

It is very old, probably never got updated.

Also can you update the BIOS, from lenovo's site?
BiosVendor = LENOVO    
BiosVersion = 30CN59WW  
BiosReleaseDate = 06/30/2010
SystemManufacturer = LENOVO                          
SystemProductName = IdeaPad Y560    
SystemVersion = Rev 1.0                 
BaseBoardManufacturer = Lenovo                          
BaseBoardProduct = KL3                             
BaseBoardVersion = Rev 1.0
It seems to be an old laptop .....

BTW, from the pictures it seems to be the GPU might be corrupted, too. If updating the display driver and the BIOS cannot fix the issue, better you take it to a hardware mechanic, as it should be out of warranty I guess.

EDIT: Oops ... sorry Harry, you have done it much better than me Ash please follow what x BlueRobot suggested.

  1. Download Driver
  2. Start Type: Device Manager
  3. Expand Display Adapters
  4. Right-Click Driver Name, Uninstall
  5. Reboot
  6. Run Driver Sweeper
  7. Reboot
  8. Install Downloaded Driver
Driver Sweeper will scan for any left over files from the old driver, old driver files can cause conflicts with new driver installations. Create a System Restore point beforehand, in case any problems or issues arise.

Driver Sweeper:AMD's Website (use the Driver Auto-Detect): It will also be a good idea to check for any overheating issues, by checking inside the case and removing any dust.

Follow these steps:Overclocking -
I recommend if you are overclocking any hardware, that you reset these values within the BIOS to their default values in order to increase the stability of your system.

Please run the following tests for your graphics card and RAM:
Run Memtest86+ for least 7-8 passes, and preferrly overnight as it can take a while to fully complete.

Test each RAM stick individually, if an error is found then move the same RAM stick into the next DIMM slot and test again, if errors are found for the same RAM stick in every available slot then you have a faulty RAM module. On the other hand, if no errors are found in the next slot or the other slots for the same RAM module, then you have a faulty DIMM slot.

Test each RAM stick and every motherboard DIMM slot available.

Graphics Card:Read all the steps within the hardware test tutorials very carefully, as stress tests is designed run components to their maximum capacity, in order to point out failing or faulty hardware components.

Use the following program to monitor your hardware temperatures during the stress test:Run some hard-drive diagnostics and follow these steps:Find your hard-drive manufacturer and run their tests.

Additional Tests:Post a screenshot of Crystal Disk Info summary: Make sure you have the latest firmware for SSD, and ensure all the SATA and Power cables are connected to the drive.

Check for any file system errors and bad sectors using Option #2 of:Use this command with Disk Check:

chkdsk C: /f /r
Scan for any missing, modified or corrupted protected Windows files with:Check for any driver compatibility issues with:If you are using DirectX, then try uninstalling and then reinstalling the DirectX Runtime:EDIT: You beat me to it Archie
