Blue Screen BC Code 116

Hello, I really often have completely desktop freezing/pixelate and BSOD with BC code 116.

I have an ASUS P5B Deluxe as motherboard and Geforce 9500 as graphic device.

Also, before freezing, very often it happens that my monitor turn off and on again and Win says "Driver video has stopped working".

I've tried several times uninstalling Video Card drivers and cleaning registry, but with no results.

Can someone help me please?

Have you updated your display/video or other major drivers lately - check in Control Panel -
Windows Updates to see if a driver has been loaded there. Use the generic troubleshooter below
and when you get to the driver section use the methods in the next message and then return to
the troubleshooter as needed. In rare cases the antivirus/antispyware/security programs can
cause this error.

Also check with System Maker and Video/Display adapter's Support as there could be known
issues - also check in their forums.

BCCode : 116    0x00000116

Bug Check 0x116: VIDEO_TDR_ERROR

The VIDEO_TDR_ ERROR bug check has a value of 0x00000116. This indicates that an attempt to reset the display driver and recover from a timeout failed.

Important Info If You Have Received a STOP Code

If you received a blue screen error, or stop code, the computer has shut down abruptly to protect itself from data loss. A hardware device, its driver, or related software might have caused this error. If your copy of Windows came with your computer, call the manufacturer of your computer. If you purchased Windows separately from your computer, Microsoft provides support. To find contact info for Microsoft or your computer manufacturer, Contact Support.

If you have experience with computers and want to try to recover from this error, follow the steps provided in the Microsoft article Resolving STOP (Blue Screen) Errors in Windows.

These actions might prevent an error like this from happening again:

  1. Download and install updates and device drivers for your computer from Windows Update.
  2. Scan your computer for computer viruses.
  3. Check your hard disk for errors.

VIDEO_TDR_ERROR Parameters

The following parameters are displayed on the blue screen.

Parameter Description

1

The pointer to the internal TDR recovery context, if available.

2

A pointer into the responsible device driver module (for example, the owner tag).

3

The error code of the last failed operation, if available.

4

http://www.faultwire.com/solutions-fatal_error/The-display-driver-failed-to-respond-in-timely-fashion-0x00000117-*1276.html 

1. Update the Video driver - also look for BIOS and low level chipset drivers at the System Maker's
(motherboard maker's for custom systems).

2. Check for Viruses/Malware.

3. Check the hard drive for errors - run Checkdisk (see below)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The inclusion of the 116 error code in the troubleshooter is only coincidence and holds no
specific meaning (other than driver caused bluescreens do occur with some frequency).

Look in the Event Viewer to see if anything is reported about those.
http://www.computerperformance.co.uk/vista/vista_event_viewer.htm

MyEventViewer - Free - a simple alternative to the standard event viewer of
Windows. TIP - Options - Advanced Filter allows you to see a time frame instead
of the whole file.
http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/my_event_viewer.html

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here are some methods to possibly fix the blue screen issue. If you could give the Blue Screen
info that would help. Such as the BCC and the other 4 entries on the lower left. And any other
error information such as STOP codes and info such as IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL or PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA and similar messages.

As examples :

BCCode: 116
BCP1: 87BC9510
BCP2: 8C013D80
BCP3: 00000000
BCP4: 00000002

or in this format :

Stop: 0x00000000 (oxoooooooo oxoooooooo oxooooooooo oxoooooooo)
tcpip.sys - Address 0x00000000 base at 0x000000000 DateStamp 0x000000000

Hi,

References to Vista also apply to Windows 7.

This is my generic how to for proper driver updates : (update video driver and BIOS)

This utility makes it easy to see which versions are loaded :

DriverView - Free - utility displays the list of all device drivers currently loaded on your system.
For each driver in the list, additional useful information is displayed: load address of the driver,
description, version, product name, company that created the driver, and more.
http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/driverview.html

For Drivers check System Maker as fallbacks and Device Maker's which are the most current.
Control Panel - Device Manager - Display Adapter - write down the make and complete model
of your video adapter - double click - Driver's tab - write down the version info. Now click UPdate
Driver (this may not do anything as MS is far behind certifying drivers) - then Right Click -
Uninstall - REBOOT this will refresh the driver stack.

Repeat that for Network - Network Card (NIC), Wifi, Sound, Mouse and Keyboard if 3rd party
with their own software and drivers and any other major device drivers you have.

Now go to System Maker's site (Dell, HP, Toshiba as examples) (as rollback) and then Device
Maker's site (Realtek, Intel, Nvidia, ATI as examples) and get their latest versions. (Look for
BIOS, Chipset and software updates at System Maker's site while there.)

Download - SAVE - go to where you put them - Right Click - RUN AD ADMIN - REBOOT after
each installation.

Always check in Device Manager - Drivers tab to be sure the version you are installing actually
shows up. This is because some drivers rollback before the latest is installed (sound drivers
particularly do this) so install a driver - reboot - check to be sure it is installed and repeat as
needed.

Repeat at Device Makers - BTW at Device Makers DO NOT RUN THEIR SCANNER - check
manually by model.

Manually look at manufacturer's sites for drivers - and Device Maker's sites.

http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/43216-installing-updating-drivers-7-a.html

If you update drivers manually then it is a good idea to disable Driver Installations in Windows
Updates, this leaves Windows Updates ON however it will not install drivers which will usually
be older and cause issues. If Updates suggests a new driver then HIDE it (Right Click on it)
and then go look for new ones manually if you wish.

Memory issues are NOT usually the cause of this Bug_Check though it is possible.

Memory tests do not catch all errors such as mismatched memory (possible even for sticks
that appear to be identical) and when faster memory is placed in system behind slower memory.
So it is best to also swap sticks in and out to check for those even if all memory tests fail to show
a problem.

To test RAM check here - let it run 4+ hours or so.  <-- best method

Hello everybody, and thanks for you suggestions.

I have tried to uninstall all drivers and then make a clean using Driver Sweeper.

I have also reinstalled all the latest driver for my hardware and latest video card driver, downloaded from NVIDiA website.

Unfortunately, the problem has not been solved. I always get BSOD and often it happens at Win startup.

I really do not know how to fix this issue and very worried because I really need to have my PC working asap.

Please, can you kindlyi suggest me a procedure to fix this issue?

1. The CAUSE of all 4 was nvlddmkm.sys which is part of the Nvidia Drivers so update those.

Be sure to ask Nvidia Support and in the Nvidia forums as there may be known issues with that
device and those drivers. Sometimes you have to revert back to older ones.

Nvidia Forums - also check for forums as it could be a known issue and/or others likely to have it

---------------------------------------------------------------------

2. Also check the issues for dxgmms1.sys which also applies.

dxgmms1.sys crash – Blue Screen Of Death
http://nzgeek.org/blog/dxgmms1-sys-crash-blue-screen-of-death/

---------------------------------------------------------------------

3. Use the memory checks and the other methods in the troubleshooters above as needed.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

4. Look for newer versions of the Eset Antivirus/Security - yours is dated 4/09/2009 and there
may be newer versions.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

5. Check the System Maker (motherboard maker for custom systems) for updated BIOS, low level
chipset drivers, and other on-board drivers.

Hope this helps.

Hi Rob,

 

thank you for the answers.

 

I've followed your suggestion and try to:

1. Remove Daemon Tools and SPTD.sys;

2. Update NVIDIA Drivers;

3. Check the troubleshooting for dxgmms1.sys (but Windows hotfix was already installed on my machine)

4. Installed and updated  ESET SS

5. BIOS is already updated with the latest available version

 

Unfortunately, I still have the same issue with BSOD and strange behaviour of the video driver, that very often stop working and is restored by Win.

I really do not know what else I can do to fix this issue.

I want to inform you on a fact that is happening and that maybe can help you to understand what is going on with my machine:

After a BSOD occurs, when the PC reboot and NVIDIA check prompt on the screen, it happens that some text characters look very strange and flickering.

Furthermore, during system boot, ASUS motherboard prompt screen show a lot of black pixels and a strange aspect...

I can solve this only unplugging the PC and leaving it unplugged for a minute or two..+

 

Do you have any ideas on what's going on?

Thank you,

 

Fabio

Hi,

Did you check for low level chipset drivers at ASUStek and at the chipset maker's site?

Did you check the memory as indicated in an extremely thorough manner?

Remove ALL power and reseat the cards, memory, and cables (on both ends when possible) actually
remove and replace - do not just snug.

Check for drivers manually, ditch the automatic programs.

Hi Rob,

I have still to try with memory testing with Memtest, and that's what I want to try today.

I will also try to download manually all the required drivers and install them.

Can I use driver sweeper to remove all the old drivers and then manually install the new ones?

Furthermore, please note that, in addition to the issue reported on my previous post, I'have noticed that when I unplug the PC, the BIOS loss time and date setting, even if I have replaced the battery with a new one..

I have also noticed that a strange delay occurs from the push of the power button and the turning on of the PC (some seconds)..

Thank you for your help Rob.

Fabio

Removing them is possibly ok using driver sweeper but I would never use it to look for updated
drivers. We are still a long way from manufacturers supporting those type of programs in a direct
manner.

Issue could be something to do with the PSU (power supply) - anything is possible.

The BIOS losing time is not a good sign, double check the battery connections.

The power delay and the time loss could indicate an issue with the PSU that also affects the video.
Issue could also be motherboard though.

Hi Rob,

 

again, I did everything you suggest:

 

1) Open the case and remove and reinstall RAM memories;

2) I was not able to remove Video Card as it seems locked (!) and  it didn't came out from the slot;

3) Update chipset driver;

4) Check on NVIDIA Support.

5) Double check battery connections

Unfortunately, BIOS continues to lose system date when the PC is unplugged.

Furthermore, I still have the same issues with Video Driver stop working and PC crashing with BSOD.

Do you have any other idea on how to fix it?

Thank you and regards,
