For those with the 116 error after update

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Well as some of you seen in my threads I thought my card was dying with the constant BSOD with error 116. I tried everything from installing old drivers and using driver sweep to reformatting. None of this worked but I really didn't want to get rid of my GTX 480 and my EVGA warranty was up so I did a little trouble shooting.

After I noticed my ritual when starting my computer is to automatically open Afterburner. Well after forgetting one time to open it and not crashing I think I found the culprit. I uninstalled it and downloaded the none beta version. Voila! this fixed my problems as I am BSOD free :] So hopefully those with this error can fix their problem with this. Try running your game without afterburner and see if you still crash. cheers :]

This game doesn't happen to use Punkbuster (battlefield 3 or bad company 2) does it? There is a known conflict with running MSI AB and punkbuster, I'm not sure exactly what the symptoms of it would be but the newer versions of AB have an option that can be checked to play nice with Punkbuster.
