Blue Screen of Death

Postby Woozle » Tue 6 May 2014 20:35

Hey guys, every once and awhile while playing Red Dragon, I will get a blue screen and an ERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR sound coming out of my speakers. I am computer illiterate so I don't know how I can really help you guys help me.

Can you go to C:\Windows\Minidumps and upload the crash files?
I'm currently running short on time. Hence, it takes some time until I respond. In urgent cases, consider contacting another mod.

Depending on your size, either zip them and attach them to some post or you make use of some third-party hoster and just post some link here.

Your bugcheck's the 0x116 VIDEO_TDR_ERROR - Microsoft: "This indicates that an attempt to reset the display driver and recover from a timeout failed. "
Basically, if your screen freezes and your PC seems to be unresponsive, but actually just the GPU is hung, "Timeout Detection Recovery" detects this and then tries to reset your GPU. If that doesn't work, Windows crashes.

First of all - revert overclocking if you're doing it.
Then see if there's some update for your graphic card. Try the beta drivers .. if that doesn't work, downgrade if possible.

Else, do you monitor temperature? Might be an issue of overheating.
Is your PSU "strong" enough to handle your PC?
Could also be related to DirectX - does the Bsod only occur when playing Wargame?

The Driver reset error has occurred in other games (namely war thunder) but windows has only crashed and blue screen of death'd in wargame. Apparently there is a new driver for my graphics, card, I will try installing that. As far as I know I am not overclocking my computer. I have never had an issue with the power supply either, and I don't think its temperature related, the computer had been running for 15 minutes tops when the last crash occurred.

I have been getting a bsod every time i play the wargame campaign, its an error 124 code which means some component stopped working but i've only had this come up when playing wargame, tried stress testing my components but i think its an issue with wargame causing the bsod.

Hello,

Can you provide your DxDiag.

Error 124 can come from a CPU temperature too high, or a bad setting in the bios.
