Windows 7: BSOD 0x00000116 on system start

BSOD 0x00000116 on system start

Hey.

I have attached a picture of the Blue Screen error that I get whenever I start up my computer. My specs are:

NVIDIA GEFORCE 7900
WINDOWS 7 HOME PREMIUM, 32-BIT

If I start my computer in safe mode then it looks like the second attachment, with a weird pattern all over the screen (and also in the wrong resolution, but I assume that's a standard safe mode feature?).

What is going on? My computer has been inactive for months. I used it for a few days, but one morning when I turned it on I just got this.. which makes me baffled as to why it has happened!

Any help is much appreciated.

Hi,

Looking at the pictures I am afraid your graphics card has developed an error (Memory fault). You will need a new one!

Sorry.

Thanks for the information.

Can other people confirm this to be the case? Not that I don't trust you Lottiemansion, I'd just like a 'second opinion' before splashing the cash!!

Yes thats a clear sign of a defective graphics card, you may test it with OCCT(won't work in safe mode)
NVIDIA/AMD Video Card - Test with OCCT

Replace/RMA the card.

Thanks for that information. However, I will be unable to run that program since I can't access my computer expect when it is in safe mode.

Do you have any suggestions for what graphics card to get? I don't have much money to spend and I'm inexperienced when it comes to knowing what is good. Something a bit better than my current one would be fine, really.

The GT520 or GT440 would be a good replacement.
