Windows 7: BSOD happens don't know how to troubleshoot have the SFdebugfiles

BSOD happens don't know how to troubleshoot have the SFdebugfiles

Recently I've cleaned out my PC used compressed air to clean out the dust bunnies. Removed my graphics card and my CPU fan but not heat-sink. After this I had troubles getting my computer to start up imediately and after a while of doing random things to my computer it would start up again. But now I'll be in the middle of playing video games or just listening to music on my computer and it will restart randomly. Tried starting it in safe-mode and received this in the problem signatures.

Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7601.
Locale ID: 1033

Additional information about the problem:
BCCode: 116
BCP4: 0000000000000004
OS Version: 6_1_7601
Service Pack: 1_0
Product: 256_1

Hi Manfredson101. It is a display/graphics failure.

First re-check that everything is properly seated after that partial dismantle you have done.

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. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.

Thank you Arc! I ended up just pressing down on my graphics card to make sure that it was seated properly, and sure enough after I did this my computer hasn't crashed since. I'm just curious how do you view those files within the zip file after SFdebugfiles for future reference?
