Windows 7: BSOD Code:0x00000116

02 Feb 2014   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Random BSOD While playing games Code:0x00000116

Windows Version: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Edition (build 7600), 64-bit

Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) CPU G2120 @ 3.10GHz

Graphics Card: AMD Radeon HD 7700 Series

Total RAM: 4.0 GB
You could say my PC is new (1 yr old) and i started having this problem about 4-5 months ago. Since i was using a 32bit OS at the time i thought that was the problem so i installed a 64bit Windows but the problem still was present. For some games it occurs more frequent than others and for some it doesn't occur at all. I searched around the web for answers but nothing worked - updating graphic drivers , windows...

Thank you in advance

Hi redrac.

A stop 0x116 is a Display/graphics related issue.

Uninstall your installed latest version of the display driver.
Then clean up any possible leftover.
Then install version 13.9 WHQL only.
Lately we have seen a lot of issues with the latest 13.12 WHQL AMD Catalyst.

Also, Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.

Wasn't sure about how long should i let the Fulmark test go on so i stoped it when the temperature was at a standstill

About the wattage - 279W and my PSU can support up to 400W

Also i am about to test if the BSOD is gone
EDIT: It didnt work, same error

You need to change the GPU as per the Furmark screenshot; which is totlly a mess. And you also need to get a bigger PSU, of at least 600 watts.

I don't understand. I get that i need to get a more powerful PSU but change the GPU? Is it defected or insufficient for the system i have ? Could therе be dust involved as in i need to open my PC and clean it (i haven't opened it yet since i bought it because my warranty will no longer be valid)
