Gtx 590 bsod 116

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey all, I'd been having troubles with my system, so I decided to do a rebuild and try to simplify some things. I had been using a gigabyte GA-X58A-UD7 (rev. 1) for a while until it burned out, so I replaced it with an Asus Rampage III Black Edition. At the same time, I replaced 2 broken GTX580's with a GTX590. The problem is that every time I boot and try to load to Windows (7, 64bit) I get a BSOD (code 116) and the error message saying nvlddmkm.sys (or something along those lines, I'm stuck at work so I can check later). I've tried everything I could think of, short of reinstalling Windows, but no luck. Based off of what I've read, it's not a problem with Windows, but rather a problem with the card / drivers. Does anyone have a fix or know what the problem is? The drivers I'm currently using are 275.50, but I've tried the last 2 driver releases as well. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have found and fixed the problem today. This is what appears to happen.
during the installation of the most current drivers 100.65 Vista, an OLD file
nvlddmkm.sys is copied into windows/system32/drivers and not the current one
in the install. As a result the new drivers are attempting to access a file
dated 11/2006 instead of 2/2007 ver 7.15.11.0065 which is in the newest WHQL
driver ver 100.65 vista 32.

Fix: Go to windows/system32/drivers and rename nvlddmkm.sys to
nvlddmkm.sys.old. Go to the nvidia directory and find the file nvlddmkm.sy_
and copy it to windows/system32. Using the cmd window (DOS box) type
EXPAND.EXE nvlddmkm.sy_ nvlddmkm.sys. When the expansion is complete, copy
the new nvlddmkm.sys to windows/system32/drivers and restart the computer.

I actually found that last night while trying to figure this out, but no luck. When I do this, it boots into windows, but then when I reinstall the drivers and restart, I get the BSOD 116 again. Could this be a hardware problem? Or is it almost guaranteed to be a driver one?

i would try reinstalling windows, sounds like you have tried everything but that.
sounds like it may be an issue with the windows.

If that doesnt work I would consider contacting the manufacturer of your card about a RMA.

A 116 error is usually CPU related, meaning Vcore might need to be increased, or VTT, in your case QPI/DRAM Controller Voltage, needs to go up.

I find the AUTO voltages were not good for me either.

So I was able to confirm that the problem was with the graphics card itself. Unfortunately, no stores around me had another 590 in stock, so I'm back to running 580's in sli. thanks for all the help everyone
