Windows 7: BSOD BCCode 116 while idle

14 Sep 2013   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
BSOD BCCode 116 while idle

I'm getting this BSOD while my computer remains idle. I come back to it after a couple of hours and the OS is unresponsive for a few seconds and then it just shuts down. After it reboots, everything seems to be normal. Also, sfc scan shows that it found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. -_- I've attached my logs.

Thank you in advance.

Hi KingKaster.

A stop 0x116 is usuallu a graphics/display related error.

We have seen lately that the latest version of the display driver is somehow unstable. Install the 314.22 WHQL only.
  • Uninstall All nvidia items in Control Panel > Programs and features
    • 3D Vision Control Driver
    • 3D Vision Driver
    • Graphics Driver
    • HD Audio Driver
    • PhysX
    • nvidia Update
    (Are you using nvidia chipset drivers? If so, dont uninstall anything other than those are listed).
  • Boot normally now. Go to Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers, Download 314.22 WHQL. While installing, Select Custom (Advanced) install. In the next page, follow this settings:

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy.

Check if the Power Supply Unit (PSU) supplying adequate power to the computer or not.

Also let us know the wattage of the PSU.

Free up the startup. Windows does not need any other program to auto start with it, but the auto start programs often conflicts and causes various problems including BSODs.
  1. Click on the Start button
  2. Type “msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
  3. Select the “Startup” tab.
  4. Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
  5. Apply > OK
  6. Accept then restart.
Try to update the BIOS to Version FI dated 2010/08/12..... the latest one available at .
