Windows Error "116" caused by Power Supply?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So I'm very frustrated right now, because I just got a replacement GTX 670 FTW after my original just started shutting off the computer. So what had happened originally was my computer just shut off one day, no warning, no blue screen, just shut off. When I tried to turn on my computer again, it would turn on for a split second then shut off. I removed my video card and replaced it with a 8800GTS and everything ran smoothy. So I returned my GTX 670 thinking it was faulty.

Forward now to tonight and now my computer is restarting with my replacement GTX 670 FTW. Again no blue screen, no indication it was shutting off, but when I do manage to get Windows up and running (ah yes, it is intermittent!) it tells me that the error I got was a "116" error.

Right now my computer has a GTX 660ti that I use in another computer and it hasn't restarted since. I'm using the GTX 670 FTW in my other computer and I just ran some benchmarks and had no issues. Now I'm suspicious that it could be the power supply. It is a Corsair TX750.

Maybe a faulty PCIe slot?

What is your Motherboard? Latest BIOS?

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

Is your GPU overclocked?

Have you uninstalled old driver before using the GTX 670?


You would have to try to try the card in another slot and/or try with another PSU.

Run Unigine Valley or Heaven.

I'm fairly certain I have the latest bios. It may have been reset at some point, but the issues were occurring when it was up to date. It is an ASRock Z77 Professional

-My GPU is factory overclocked by EVGA, 670 FTW.

I didn't uninstall the drivers previously, but that was because the drivers were the most recent ones.

I put my card in another computer with a power supply that had 100 watts less and I ran Unigine Valley on loop no issues at all.

I updated bios, and download driver sweeper. I cleared all of the previous dirvers and installed the latest. No issues so far.

Nice my friend.

It is very imprtant to unistall old drivers. Your computer is used to have a 8800 GTX in the PCIe slot. Registry entries and such can get messed up thumb.gif

Updating the BIOS can also help with more recent hardware. ( don't know the course of history of your BIOS updates but they may have done an update with more compatibility)
