Windows 7: Random BSOD error 0x00000116

14 Mar 2015   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Random BSOD error 0x00000116

I've been getting random BSOD for about 2 weeks now while gaming (multiple in Diablo 3, a couple in Dragon Age Inquisition), browsing (firefox and Chrome, usually while watching a stream on Twitch), while watching videos in VLC, and while the PC was was idle.

From what I've looked into it seems to be something to do with the video driver/GPU. GPU is a Gigabyte GTX 760 2GB, current Driver is 347.52. Here's the text from the Windows Error window:

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

Additional information about the problem:
BCCode: 116
BCP1: FFFFFA800E6274E0
BCP2: FFFFF88006220F38
BCP4: 0000000000000004
OS Version: 6_1_7601
Service Pack: 1_0
Product: 256_1

Also checked the Event Viewer:

The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x00000116 (0xfffffa800e6274e0, 0xfffff88006220f38, 0xffffffffc000009a, 0x0000000000000004). A dump was saved in: C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP. Report Id: 031415-36488-01.

At this point I'm pretty much out of ideas on how to fix this. Any help would be appreciated

Counterfeit installations such as yours contains heavily modified code that causes the installation to behave it unexpected ways. Analysing BSOD's and determining their causes on these sorts of installations is very unreliable.

My recommendation is to start with a clean slate, and install a genuine version of Windows. This will minimise the problems you are experiencing, and make subsequent diagnosis of BSOD's far more reliable.
