0x00000116 twice while playing Steam games

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 


I'm normally not a gamer, but with my new situation, I'm able to have gaming time, so I decided to delve into Steam. I was playing Magic the Gathering, and it has twice restarted with no warning. I checked my BSOD viewer, and the stop code was 0x00000116 (display driver error). No biggie, I'm a folder and rarely update my drivers (I'm on 266.58). I go to NVIDIA's driver site, and look up the drive for my GTX 460 (main card). It recommends 266.58...

I then let it autodetect (as I have two 450's for folding as well) and it's recommended I use the 267.XX driver Is there a way to install the driver for the 450's without losing the driver for the 460?

Get the beta 270.51.

Perfect drivers so far.

What you need is to uninstall 266.58 in windows, go in safemode, run driver sweeper fro nvidia display only (leave physx and the other ones alone). Then go back in regular windows and install 270.51.

Letting the 270.51 installer do a "clean install" not enough? I don't have to fiddle around with the registry do I?

Also, did the same thing while running Windows Experience Assesment, I nearly pee'd my pants I was laughing so hard.

No fiddling.

Just check nvidia display in driver sweeper and click clean.

Could you link me to a Win 7 compatible 270.51 driver...the one I found (NVIDIA's...?) didn't work.
