Windows 7: BSOD Playing CS:GO error 0x00000116

BSOD Playing CS:GO error 0x00000116

Hi everyone!

I recently completed my build and I am very satisfied with the result, it is my 7th build and everything went well.

However, when playing CS:GO I get huge lag-spikes about every 20-30 min - 1 hour. The computer almost never crashes it merely freezes for a while (10 sec maybe).

One time though, about a week ago it actually crashed giving me the opportunity to reach out to you guys with a BSOD dump:

Many thanks and best regards,

Hi TobyL.

If it is a stray BSOD only (as it is appearing), you may neglect it for the time being. But if the issue continues to occur, then troubleshooting is really needed.

To troubleshoot a stop 0x116 issue, the basic places that you need to observe is ....
  • Overclocking. It may cause a stop 0x116.
  • Power Supply. Make it sure that PSU is supplying adequate power.
  • Temperature. Overheating may cause it. Monitor the temps using Speccy (Free).
  • GPU. It may fail to take the stress. A Furmark stress test will tell you about it.
  • Display driver. Observe the situation with different versions.
Sometimes some game settings may also cause it. A downgradation of the game preferences may also be helpful.

If the BSODs continue, we will start itemwise troubleshooting, OK?

Hi Arc!

Thank you so much I have been testing for a full month now (wanted to be completely sure before I celebrated)

I did flawless furmark, stresstests but failed in CS GO like the post indicated. Then I did as you suggested and rolled back to a previous release of my graphics driver.

For a month now I have had only had 1 crash and could find other issues that lead to that. So zero crashes due to this issue.

Conclusion: the driver was the problem, will wait a while before I update the driver and try again

Cheers to Arc! (marked as solved)
