    BSOD 0x116 (stop error) Replaced GPU, replaced RAM, replaced PSU

    My monitor goes black and I am forced to reboot. After rebooting I get a blue screen prompt telling me that i've recovered from a BSOD. I've been monitoring them since October.

    In October, I RMA'd my graphics card. Oct 27. You can see that after I got a new GPU, my BSOD's halted... so obviously its the GPU right? if you look at my BSOD dumps the last one is OCT 27, new gpu, and i don't get one until Feb 7.

    So on Feb 7 I call up eVGA again and say, ok so my GPU is bad again and I wonder if its something im doing to kill them.

    So I am going to get a second RMA and the tech tells me that they received my first card and they ran it for over a hour in a diagnostic app and didn't have a single problem... aka my card was fine...

    so i explain my BSOD issues and the tech tells me that it may be a voltage issue and that it may be my power supply... soooooooooo

    I goto Tiger Direct down the street and buy a "whatever i can get" thats over 1000 watts supply because I have a 850 watt PSU and obviously its not enough power so i go big... and guess what... My last BSOD dump before the PSU is 3/18 March 18. So new PSU and I don't get a single BSOD until 6/14/2014.

    So I have attached "All" of my dumps and all my info with the issues.

    My problem is... if its "not" my GPU, why did getting a new one give me no BSOD for 3 months.

    my problem is... if its "not" my PSU why did getting a new one march 18 let my PC run till 6/14 with no BSOD's.. again 3 months...

    is this not randomly coincidentally off? i mean.. why would a new GPU make it work for 3 months, then find out from eVGA my old GPU was fine. then why did a new PSU make it work, when my old one "was" working fine minus the BSOD's.. which make me wonder if the PSU is the issue.. again, why would it magically just work with no setting changes for 3 months?

    or is there something coincidental about my issues??? like maybe something im missing?

    also... my motherboard is out of warranty by a few months, so Gigabyte said too bad... but they said "oh well a stop error like that sounds like RAM"... but i replaced my Ram with Corsair all new sticks...

    i also set up my voltages in my BIOS to the right voltages, the right RAM timings, the right everything... i think...

    I have a liquid cooled PC so its hard to just pull a CPU or pull a GPU and swap it around :\

    Also, my BSOD's happen randomly.. usually in the first 10 minutes, then usually not again for hours or days... its rare that i have 2 BSOD dumps in 1 day and after it BSOD's i reboot and run it all day.. so its not like i keep it off... and my temps are stupid sexy... 30 - 40c for CPU under full load, and GPU sits at 40 - 50 all day long. its not a temp issue, because if it was, why would it happen instantly, then not again, and i can game all day and night with no issues.. its just a SUPER RANDOM thing to me... also if i dual boot into mac (like a hacintosh) my mac also black screens and reboots, so its the same stop video issue thats happening.

    Also im a MSDN subscriber so i have tried a fresh ISO of win 8.1 and 2 or 3 win 7 64's (different media 1x burn speed, the works). thinking that maybe its OS related... (which im pretty dang sure its not).

    if anyone can give me some better insight that would be really helpful. Don't wanna dump $ into a 3rd PSU or RMA my GPU again (but eVGA said i can). so please give me some solid advice, thanks!

    Hi Zuriel.

    I read your OP. I would suggest you to have an open mind; and dont decide that it is not it. Because during troubleshooting you have to get everything tested.

    The BSOD is a stop 0x116. That is an error from the part of the display environment. That means ....

    • The GPU itself
    • The display driver
    • The PSU
    • The system temps and dust allocation inside the computer
    • The hardware parts like GPU fans
    • Overclocking failure

    And etc. I would suggest you to go through a thorough troubleshooting, whatever may be the idea you may have about those.

    Are you overclocking? As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings.

    Check if the Power Supply Unit (PSU, 850 watts you said) supplying adequate power to the computer or not.

    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.
    Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

    Install the NVIDIA DRIVERS 314.22WHQL only, at least as a test. Because it never fails on itself.

    • 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).
    • Now follow Drivers - Clean Left over Files after Uninstalling
    • 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:

    Clean installed the NVIDIA DRIVERS 314.22WHQL only.

    Ran FurMark for 30 minutes. Temps never went over 65c at 2560x1600 using the exact settings listed in the forum post you linked to set it up (burnin, fx, logging, etc). No issues, no artifcats, I am writing this post after the 30 minutes of running it with no issues.

    Like i suspected... its not a temperature issue... its not... I turn the PC on today, got a blue screens within 4 minutes of running the PC. Rebooted after BS0D #1 and got the second within 1 minute of BSOD #1. Rebooted again and haven't gotten a BSOD yet, and I ran the 30 minute furmark test....

    both BSOD's were stop 16, same error as always. Drivers have no chanage. stress test has no change.

    Going to pull all the sticks but 1 stick and run a memtest64 on it. Then i'll run it with the solo stick and see, but its looking more and more like a power supply / motherboard issue...

    any thoughts?

    You havent reported about the temperature and the PSU yet?

    And, for reporting the BSOD, upload the data as per the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions in your reply post alongwith the two missing reports.
