BSOD: STOP 116 Vista WoW

Hi, Ive had this problem with my computer and ill try to explain as much as possible. I just got a new computer bridge about a few months ago, the spes are...

Manufacurer: gateway

Model: DX4710-05

Processor: Intel (r) Core (TM) 2 Quad Q6600 @2 CPU. 40 GHz 2.40 GHz

(Vivid RAM) memory: 4.00 GB

System type: 64-bit Operating System

So I downloaded World of Warcraft right when I bought the new computer about 2 months ago. Everything has worked and WoW went smoothly with no hicups comlpletly. About 5 days after I downloaded the new Cataclysm expansion pack on my computer, the game just glitched and I got the BSOD. This had never happened before when I played Wow, but now I can not even log in without getting the BSOD. The BSOD said... Windows stops to further damage pervent 'blah' "blah" "blah" and then STOPS. OXOOOO116 or something like that. Internet was this dubbed the BSOD Stop of 116 and most of the markets say it's because of outdated drivers or a graphics card problem. My windows update says that everything is up to date and I even tried to reinstall WoW, but I get on the BSOD STOP 116. Should I get a new graphics card or what? What should I do to fix this?



This is the process of updating drivers. Since you have already downloaded the video driver you
just install it now. Go to the part in BOLD below.

Maybe need of these:

This utility, it is easy see which versions are loaded:

-Free - DriverView utility displays the list of all device drivers currently loaded on your system. For
each driver in the list, additional useful information is displayed: load address of the driver, description,.
version, product name, company that created the driver and more.

For drivers, visit manufacturer of emergency system and of the manufacturer of the device that are the most common.
Control Panel - device - Graphics Manager - note the brand and complete model
your video card - double - tab of the driver - write version information. Now, click on update
Driver (this can do nothing as MS is far behind the certification of drivers) - then right-click - Uninstall
-RESTART that will refresh the driver stack.

Repeat this for network - card (NIC), Wifi network, sound, mouse, and keyboard if 3rd party
with their own software and drivers and all other main drivers that you have.

Now in the system manufacturer (Dell, HP, Toshiba as examples) site (in a restaurant), peripheral
Site of the manufacturer (Realtek, Intel, Nvidia, ATI, for example) and get their latest versions. (Look for the BIOS,
Chipset and software updates on the site of the manufacturer of the system here.)

Download - SAVE - go to where you put them - right click - RUN AS ADMIN - REBOOT after
each installation.

Always check in the Device Manager - drivers tab to be sure the version you actually install
presents itself. This is because some restore drivers before the most recent is installed (sound card drivers
in particular that) so to install a driver - reboot - check that it is installed and repeat as

Repeat to the manufacturers - BTW in the DO NOT RUN THEIR SCANNER device - check
manually by model.

Look at the sites of the manufacturer for drivers - and the manufacturer of the device manually.

How to install a device driver in Vista Device Manager

If you update the drivers manually, then it's a good idea to disable the facilities of driver under Windows
Updates, that leaves about Windows updates but it will not install the drivers that will be generally
older and cause problems. If updates offers a new driver and then HIDE it (right click on it), then
get new manually if you wish.

Hope these helps.

    This is my first time to ask your question here, please be patient if I make a mistake in the Protocol.
    After that massive Windows Update this week, my laptop Acer AO725 has had trouble waking mode standby, often gives me an error BSOD (bccode 116). I read through other entries of forum on issues with video drivers, but it just got a common question after updates. I have installed a new material during this time, and the only new software that I installed was a registry cleaner today after several days of this problem to happen.
    May updates caused the problem and if so, how should I do? Does anyone have any troubleshooting tips? It is very annoying to deal with and hope that there is a solution that is not very difficult.

    OK two things, first off I just is down to the phone with Alienware support and solved the problem (or so it seems for now barely made this 45 minutes ago) and explain the solution in a minute.

    -I was not overclocking. I just received my office yesterday and had no time to mess with that yet.

    -J' was started in safe mode and uninstalled the graphics driver and reinstalled. has restarted hollow all my system event records and found the newspaper which says that have been forced.

    Finally, I called Alienware from Dell support. Talked to a tech and it was a simple as a switch setting in my BIOS.

    I have an Alienware Aurora R4:

    -FIX - restart your computer, press F2 to enter the settings. Go to the "Advanced" tab and select "Integrated peripherals" there is something in the sense of "3gen' with the graphics (don't remember what this option was exactly) but that disable.

    as simple as that.

  • Windows 2008 R2 on HP ML115 restored to VM does not start with BSOD Stop 0x0000007B

    As a contingency plan for our server HP ML115 running Windows Server 2008 R2 Foundation, we want to restore the backup created with windows (optional bare metal) backup to a virtual machine under VMware player 3.1.2. Restored boot fails with BSOD Stop 0x0000007B. Initially, the machine works with the integrated Nvidia RAID controller. We tried with the converter to migrate the image to the new disk controller, but the virtual machine does not start. Any attempts to install the driver LSI SAS 3000 in the physical machine failed because the seller and models do not appear in the console devmgmt even if we are using the corresponding diskette/driver.

    Any tips are appreciated. Thank you.

    You may need to start the virtual machine with an Image of CD/DVD/ISO OS appropriate Live with the ability to edit the Windows registry on the client, and clear the nonexistent controller while allowing the new virtual controller and add the driver if necessary and check the .vmx config file is to show the controller suitable as well.  I did not go with your particular scenario however have done with similar cases so it's doable.

  • Vista Home Premium in case of failure BSOD STOP: 0 x 00000050 (0x803F5255, 0 x 00000000, 0 x 00000000, 0 x 87670510)

    Hello, world

    While working on the eve of Christmas on my Acer Aspire laptop (under Windows Vista Home Premium) a Blue Screen Of Death appeared and my system crashed.

    When the computer reboots, asked to choose among safe Modes or start Windows normally. I, perhaps foolishly, chose the latter.

    The first thing I noticed was the absence of the Microsoft logo when the login screen was supposed to be loading. After that, the slider pointer floating around a black, blank screen before an another BSOD appears. I took a picture of this BSOD for reference.

    He said PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA with a STOP code: 0 x 00000050 (0x803F5255, 0 x 00000000, 0 x 00000000, 0 x 87670510)

    The system then is crushed and repeated to do this at the same point regardless of my choice to start with one of the Security Modes or normally.

    After searching the forums, I decided to create a recovery disk (my original ones being inaccessible for the moment) a download, placing the ISO image file to CD - R. After the system boots to the CD/DVD drive first, I was able to boot from the recovery disk and access the System Recovery options.

    First of all, Startup Repair could detect no problem. Restore the system told me I had no restore points. Memory sweep found nothing abnormal. Command prompt told me, when I used the command CHKDSK/F/R, thatfile system is NTFS . that he "cannot lock current drive; and "Windows cannot run disk checking on this volume, because it iswrite protected ."

    All the experts, I beg you

    What can I do?

    Thank you very much



    ·         You have the encrypted drive?

    You can try these:

    (a) go into the Windows Recovery environment command prompt

    (b) then type 'diskpart' and press on enter.

    (c) volume of Type 'list' and press on enter.

    (d) then 'select volume xxx' (where xxx is the write protected problem drive)

    (e) then type 'clear readonly attributes volume. "

    (f) then the output command.

    (g) then try to run chkdsk.

  • Computer Vista will not start, the computer keeps restarting. Also had a BSOD "STOP: 0 x 00000024 (0X8D5389C, 0X8DB535CC, 0X001904AA, 0X8CC143A1)" while trying to use reinstall OS Dell drive

    Original title: corrupted vista OS?

    My Dell studio slim desktop (Vista OS) that I have since Mar09 died on me 2 weeks back and I can't it start and it will keep rebooting until it resembles the wide long beep (as if a deceased person)

    Whenever my com has restarted, it shows the following:

    Safe mode

    Safe mode with networking

    Safe mode with command prompt

    Last known good configuration (Advanced)

    Start Windows normally

    All options will be led to the recovery of my com & return the same screen.

    It will always get stuck at the loading bar where the com starts boot & restarts itself.

    I tried to attach the hard drive to a different com as external hard drive, but it will begin to restart that com & hang the CMO as well

    I tried using the disc to reinstall OS from DELL and it will show a msg of error (blue screen) with the following text:

    Disable or uninstall the antivirus, Defrag disk or backup utilities. Check the configuration of the hard disk & check for any updated drivers.

    Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer.

    Hi Bill,

    I forgot to include some info as well... I replaced the 'touched' hardisk (Barracuda 500 GB) to an unused a (Barracuda 160 GB) and the problems disappeared. Whenever I change back the 500 GB in the com, the sound signal occurs only backwards the system continues the reopening for abt... 10 + times?

    "My Office studio slim (Vista OS) Dell I have since Mar09 died on me 2 weeks back and I can't it start, and he'll keep rebooting until it seems a beep long-lasting looks not (as if someone died).

    So the questions are now fixed, unless you put the other disk hard?

    Test the other hard drive.

    Go to the website of your computer manufacturer > find specifications of hardware in your computer (hard drive) > access the Web Hard Drive from the manufacturer site > download their diagnostic software > make a Bootable disc > test your hard drive.

    And run the F12 as I advised you to do so.

    It is DELL's Diagnostics software.

    Good luck with it.

    Thank you.

    Hi Jcglazier,

    This error occurs when the file system is damaged and cannot be mounted. Because you can not boot in any mode, I would say that you perform a Startup Repair on your computer. You can start with the vista DVD and perform a Startup Repair on the computer that should solve the problem.

    1. Insert the installation disc.
    2. Restart your computer.

    If your computer is not configured to start from a CD or a DVD, see the documentation provided with your computer. You may need to change your computer's BIOS settings. For more information, see BIOS: frequently asked questions.

    1. Choose your language settings, and then click Next.
    2. Click repair your computer.
    3. Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next.
    4. In the System Recovery Options menu, click Startup Repair. Startup Repair can invite you to make choices as it tries to solve the problem, and if necessary, it may restart your computer, because it makes the repairs.

    I hope this helps.

    "It is not a true crash, in the sense that the blue screen was launched only because the combination of material and video driver video was to be insensitive and not because of any exception processing synchronous".

    Since Vista, the components of "Timeout detection and recovery" (TDR) of the subsystem video OS have been able to do some really impressive things to try to find issues that would have led to the earlier OS like XP to crash.

    As a last resort, the TDR subsystem sends a video driver command "Please restart you now!" and wait a few seconds.
    If there is no answer, the BONE concludes that the combo of driver/hardware video has really collapsed in a heap, and it fires at this stop 0 x 116 BSOD.

    If playing with video driver versions did not help, make sure that the box is not overheated.
    Try to remove a side panel and a fan of big sector directly to the motherboard and GPU.
    Run it like that for a few hours or days - long enough to check whether the cooler temperatures make a difference.

    If so, it could be as simple as dust accumulation and inadequate cooling afterwards.

    I download cpu - z and gpu - z (both free) and keep an eye on the video time

    BSOD can be caused by a hardware or software problem.
    First of all, you should check if it s not software related issue.
    In such cases, it of needed to reinstall the Windows operating system.
    Usually the new OS installed should not cause any BSOD!

    If the Toshiba Recovery disk does not help you, then you should start to investigate
    It may be a cause of modules defective memory BSOD issue very often.

    However, if you have no knowledge about computers, then you should ask a technician to downtown to control parts.

    The machine is stuck in an operation of copy/paste from a website to an email and died with stop error message 0 x 00008086. No additional information said.

    No info to the MSKB available. Many forums say that it is due to a material error in the SATA controller, something with the ACPI mode - seems to depend on this, switching to compatibility mode in bios causes the machine to not dispay no BSOD more, but start of the operating system drive or recovery is not possible. Anyone know this topic or meet a similar prob?
    Thanks in advance for any reply (useful)...


    Hi RJ.

    Generally these BSOD codes are mainly related to hardware or driver issues...
    Before exchanging something or contact an authorized repair service provider, I recommend you to reinstall Windows from the Toshiba recovery disc. This can restore with pre-tested settings factory settings and drivers of Toshiba. Normally, everything should work fine with him.

    If this is not the case, there is a hardware problem, but it is always hard to tell which part is exactly defective. Therefore, you need professional help from a technician for laptop.
