BSOD after 40~80 minutes of using the computer, error 0x000000F4

I've been getting BSODs after about an hour or so of turning on my pc. It happens even on safe mode, given enough time. Appreciate any help and thx for your time!

Hi Rikage. Supporting your side in the copa do mundo.

Unfortunately the BSODs are all stop 0x116. But as you are saying about stop 0xF4, first of all make it sure that your SSD, the M4 2.5 inch, is running with the latest firmware.
Next come to stop 0x116 issue. It is a display/graphics issue.
BugCheck 116, {fffffa800864b010, fffff8800f98cd1c, ffffffffc000009a, 4}

*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for nvlddmkm.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for nvlddmkm.sys
Probably caused by : nvlddmkm.sys ( nvlddmkm+98bd1c )

First attempt to roll the driver back to one that worked good there.

Device Manager - Roll Back Driver

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.

Check if the Power Supply Unit (PSU) supplying adequate power to the computer or not.

Also let us know the wattage of the PSU.

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 .

Let us know the results.

Hi, Arc. Thanks for the input.
I could not downgrade the graphics driver to a previous version (my pc has been formated recently). But I think it did well on the stress test (after 10 min, 75șC, no artifacts - dunno if there is a log for that).

I had some overheating issues yesterday, but that was because after I had opened to clean it up, I forgot to plug the side fan back on after I finished.

I have done as instructed and upgraded the firmware. So far, things are looking good. It's been operating for 107 min nonstop and no errors so far.

PSU is something I'll not be able to check right away. I'm not sure of what my specs are, but if problems return, I'll take a look at that.

Thanks for your help, Arc. You rock!

Its OK, mate.

But if the issue bounces back, you may need to work a bit more.
