Windows 7: BSOD while gaming, error 0x116, dxgkrnl.sys dxgkrnl.sys+5d134 fffff880

BSOD while gaming, error 0x116, dxgkrnl.sys dxgkrnl.sys+5d134 fffff880

Hey, thanks in advance for taking the time to help me.

For the past couple months I've been blue screening. I've tried a plethora of options and have finally given up and am asking for some assistance online.

Information on Crashes:
•Only occurs while gaming
•Computer black screens. If on a Skype call other parties can continue to interact with me for roughly 10 seconds before the computer restarts.
•Occasionally loud glitch sounds will occur.
•One recent crash where the system crashed and the monitor could not receive signal. Turning the computer off and on again resolved the issue.

Attempted fixes so far:
•Reformatted my hard drive to factory settings twice (no effect).
•Rolled back graphics drivers to default, tried earlier version of drivers, updated drivers, etc. (no effect)
•Changed graphics cards: I originally had a NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 760 Ti and the problem still persists with my current gtx 960.
•Ran memtest for 22 passes (this took nearly two days!). No fails.
•Ran chkdsk three times. No bad sectors
•Cleaned my computer so many times.
•Reseated the memory and cleaned all components once again.

Attached files:

Thank you for the help and let me know what else I need to do.

Today it crashed while playing League of Legends. Once it restarted the computer successfully booted and went to login screen but the monitor failed to display anything (I could tell it got to login screen because the headphones made the Windows noise). I happened to have GTtemp on at the time and the last few log entries hover around 67-69. I did not notice a single 70 or above. Upon restarting the system the problem vanished.

In other news I reseated the memory this morning but I am doubtful of it being a viable solution to these problems.

A 0x116 is a VIDEO_TDR_ERROR (Timeout Detection Recovery), this can be down to drivers, overheating, a bad card or power to the card among other things. As you've tried multiple drivers and two different cards I'd suspect the PCI-e slot on the motherboard or the PSU. Do you know which motherboard and PSU you have fitted? Have you been performing clean installations of your GPU drivers?

In addition to what Boozad is asking mate you might want to run this form my little ditty
Using HW Info
You can test the volts on the PSU with HW Info HWiNFO, HWiNFO32/64 - Download < download the right bit version and close the right hand window select Sensors and scroll down to the power section where you will see what the volts are doing see my pic. In my pic the section with VBATT is a dead give away you are in the section for the rail voltages.
Now the voltage on the different rails have to be within 5% =+/- of what is required or the machine will not work properly if at all.
See this for the rail voltage info,3061.html (Section 2.)
The original right hand window shows the machine running and is handy for that but for looking at the components in some detail close it and use the main left hand side panel
Open each small square with + in it on the section the components are in and then click on the individual component/s (it will highlight in blue) - in the right hand side will appear all sorts of details including brands speeds and other essential info that particular device. See pic for example.

Wrong. We have a dedicated forum for Windows 8 so it matters a lot, which you'd know if you'd read Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions
