Windows 7: BSOD Starting Arma 3, BCC 116

BSOD Starting Arma 3, BCC 116

Hey Guys, run into an issue as of late where my computer is chucking the skits when I run Arma 3.

its pretty temperamental and sometimes able to play for 2 hours straight with no issue or sometimes i start the game and it BSODS on loading screen.

So far I have only seen Bccode 116 and I have uninstalled and reinstalled my Graphics Drivers (tried clean installing)

so if anyone could help point me in the direction of rectifying this then that would be amazing!

Thanks in advance!

hello, Damonjay I'll see if I can help. As I am sure you know, your issue is your graphics drivers/card. All of the dump files I looked at are the same.

Attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed.
Arg1: fffffa80070e6010, Optional pointer to internal TDR recovery context (TDR_RECOVERY_CONTEXT).
Arg2: fffff88004eaa81c, The pointer into responsible device driver module (e.g. owner tag).
Arg3: ffffffffc000009a, Optional error code (NTSTATUS) of the last failed operation.
Arg4: 0000000000000004, Optional internal context dependent data.
A TDR failure (Timeout Detection and recovery) basically means your graphics drivers crashed but did not recover in time. Windows assumes a hardware failure and shuts down to protect itself. They can be caused by several things, but it is usually the Graphics drivers or the card. This is your current driver

I would suggest you follow the below tutorial and reinstall the graphics drivers. I would try a previous driver that you found stable. Install the Graphics Driver and PhysX and nothing else.
NVIDIA Drivers - Avoid Problems

Try that and see if it works any better for you.

Hello Essenbe and thank you for the quick reply!

I have followed the tutorial in removing and reinstalling the drivers and have experimented back dating drivers to November last year. Unfortunately no dice, I am still receiving bcc116 blue screens on start up of Arma 3.

attached is the updated minidump

Thanks again for your time
