computer crashing to blank screen with code 116

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Starting last Monday I installed the most recent nVidia drivers for BF3. That night my computer crashed once with a 116 error code gaming. I thought it was just a fluke, so didn't think anything of it.

Since then my computer will crash SOMETIMES when the GPU gets stressed. This is the weird part; sometimes it'll crash other times it won't. I played BF3 for 4hrs straight, no crash. Next time I launch it it will crash. What happens is that my monitor loses display, then it'll crash to blank screen. When I log into Windows next time it gives me the 116 error.

Since I started seeing this error when I installed the new driver, I rolled back to the previous one, and the crash still happened. I tried drive sweeper as well and re installed the driver etc., still crashes.

I was thinking I had a bad PCI slot, so I moved the card over to the 2nd slot, and it'll still crash... I re installed windows and it crashed on that too...! Tried to install a 2nd time, and it worked. Now when I run windows rating index, it will crash .

I'm almost positive this is a hardware component failing one me. I have 2 gtx 480's and they both do it in single mode, so it's not the card. I currently only have one hooked up and it does it. What else could it be?

TLR- computer keeps crashing with code 116 (video error) even after reinstall of WIN7; what could be my problem? ;;

0x116 = Low IOH (NB) voltage, GPU issue (most common when running multi-GPU/overclocking GPU)

So since you've tried them individually see if raising your IOH voltage helps?

hmm...

I've never overclocked my cards.

In the chance of sounding like a major noob what's the easiest way to raise IOH of the card?

Not of the card, I believe its referring to your motherboard voltages. So just go into your bios and turn ioh/nb up

Try to boot with one stick of RAM then run WEI or other games that crash. Try every stick of RAM if one of them is faulty.
