Welcome to SF Daniel .
VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE (116) Attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed.
has went terribly wrong in the kernel which forced the machine to crash.
"Display driver xxxxx stopped responding and was recovered"
Timeout Detection & Recovery (TDR) = "Display Driver Stopped Responding and was Recovered" is a useful feature that started in Vista and is also in W7 that allows the OS to try and recover from a video timeout so that the system does not crash to a bluescreen. Symptoms included a screen flash with the TDR message appearing one or more times or the screen blinking out to black. If the system cannot recover it will crash (Stop Error 116 typical). The issue is that the video card is not responding as expected. The solution is in the: why?
There is no one-size-fits-all solution to TDR errors. But the problem is usually found in the local environment (your computer). Finding the cause is a matter of checking every possible cause and uncovering the culprit through a simple process of elimination. By methodically running down a checklist of diagnostic procedures you should be able to find the cause and can correct it.
There are numerous reports of hardware solutions to TDR's. The most common are:
Please roll-back your nVidia drivers to a known stable release:
- Don't install GeForce Experience -
Install the 314.22 WHQL only.
Write down the current value of the SATA Mode!
Its either AHCI or IDE.
After resetting the CMOS go back and verify the value for SATA Mode is what it was
when the OS was installed.
If any component is overclocked reset it back to stock speeds!
What is the make, model and age of your PSU?
Fill out this form and post back the result:
Test for thermals and stability:
Testing the RAM:
Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+:
This will help you to determine where the issue is origination from (if any):
First run it with all the existing/installed RAM modules. If it comes with no error, all is good.
But if it starts showing errors, Stop testing. Errors/red lines means one or more RAM is faulty. But the fault may occur due to a faulty DIMM slot, too, which is a motherboard component. Using memtest86+, you can discriminate between a faulty RAM and a faulty motherboard.
How? Say you have two RAM sticks and two DIMM slots. You obtained errors at the test with all RAM sticks installed. Now, remove all the sticks but one. Test it in all the available slots, one by one. Continue the same procedure for all the available sticks.
How to make the inference that is it a RAM issue or it is a motherboard issue? Suppose you have got the result like that:
But if you have got a result like that:

Any good Chess games for 7 Starter or Home Basic ?
A friend of mine has Windows 7 Starter and was looking through my system (Ultimate). He loved Chess Titans, but there is no way to use it in Starter (No Aero, Chess Titans will not work without Aero). Are there any good Chess games with comparable looks and brains (preferably free ;)) ?
