Windows 7: bsod when playing games, 0x00000116 nvkflt.sys

bsod when playing games, 0x00000116 nvkflt.sys


I am using an ASUS N56VM, 6 months old, and I am getting regular bsods when playing games.

The bsod occurs randomly after playing for a while, most of the time after 20 minutes, only when the game uses the dedicated graphics card (GT630M). It happens every time in some games, occasionally in others.

It looks like a heat problem, but I am positive that at least in some instances, the GPU wasn't at more than 60C when the bsod occured.

I tried clean re-installations of the Nvidia Drivers several times, first the latest driver, then the previous one, then the last known stable driver (314.22).
I also tried to downclock the GPU through the nvidia performance tool, but the error still comes up.

I am out of ideas, I am willing to try any method, follow any step you can give me, and if I can learn something in the process it's even better.

Thanks for any help you can provide

Does the graphics card have a fan on it? If so, make sure it is operating. Also check the area around the card to make sure there is not dust/dirt clogging the area around the card. Also you might want to check this link to see if it helps ya any

It occurs most often while playing certain less graphically intensive games (Mafia II, Overlord II) and almost not at all while playing things like Witcher 2 or LA Noire. It's a brand new HD 7770 so I'm trying to rule out everything else despite the fact that the BSOD points to atikmpag.sys,...
