Windows has recovered from unexpected shutdown - Windows 7 64bit

so Far so good. i got no errors.. i updated my mainboard bios and nvedia using the live update 5. i hope this resolves my problem. Thanks for the help Elmer :) and also to Trouble.. i will just post here if anything goes bad again :)

I guess im back here.. my friend told me to reformat my PC.. to get rid of the error..ive already installed the latest from the latest drivers. including SP 1 and BIOS.. but i still got this error.. but it's locale ID is different from before

You're getting a Stop Error Code 116
(Link) "It's not a true crash, in the sense that the bluescreen was initiated only because the combination of video driver and video hardware was being unresponsive, and not because of any synchronous processing exception.

Since Vista, the "Timeout Detection and Recovery" (TDR) components of the OS video subsystem have been capable of doing some truly impressive things to try to recover from issues which would have caused earlier OSs like XP to crash. As a last resort, the TDR subsystem sends the video driver a "please restart yourself now!" command and waits a few seconds. If there's no response, the OS concludes that the video driver/hardware combo has truly collapsed in a heap, and it fires off that stop 0x116 BSOD.

If playing with video driver versions hasn't helped, make sure the box is not overheating. Try removing a side panel and aiming a big mains fan straight at the motherboard and GPU. Run it like that for a few hours or days - long enough to ascertain whether cooler temperatures make a difference. If so, it might be as simple as dust build up and subsequently inadequate cooling." - H2SO4
Ensure that none of the hardware is being over-clocked.
Ensure that the machine is adequately cooled. Chase out those dust bunnies!

A nasty dust bunny!

Thanks for this info.. i dont know how to see if my hardware is over-clocked.. but my Mainboard has this special feature which is the MSI Global ? Mainboard - H61M-E23 (B3) ... but i already disabled it.. ill just try to open the case and blow up all dust bunnies..
thanks for this info.

Let us know either way! (not just the bad ways!!). And give yourself a pat on the back for getting all your drivers / system up to date! Way to Go!!!

N.B. Did you get the latest bios from the 11th of this month? Addresses:
- Update CPU micro code.
- Update RAID option ROM.
- Improved memory compatibility.

oh. i dindnt see that latest bios update. but im currently downloading it.. thanks :)

hi.. i guess im back..
i have this latest dump file.... and i was wondering what is that sound means? coz everytime my PC hanged up or crashes .. it has this sound like i dont know how to explain.. but it sounds like theres something wrong.. anyway.
i guess it is still the error 116 but i have already updated my drivers .. including the latest BIOS.. i dont know what to do now :(..

Kaspersky can, on very rare occasions, contribute to BSOD's on some Windows 7 systems. I suggest, for experimental purposes, that you uninstall Kaspersky with the Removal tool for Kaspersky and download BSOD friendly Microsoft Security Essentials as its replacement. Make sure Windows firewall is enabled. Once your blue screen issues are resolved feel free to re-install an up to date Kaspersky set up.

You have a driver called
NTIOLib_X64.sys 10/20/2010 which I believe is associated with MSI Afterburner, a program which has known issues with Windows 7.
My suggestion at this point would be to consider uninstalling the program and afterward double check and confirm that NTIOLib_X64.sys is not present here C:\Windows\System32\Drivers (or anywhere else on your system for that matter) you may find it necessary to rename the file extension from NTIOLib_X64.sys to NTIOLib_X64.OLD to prevent it from loading. And of course if you were using that program to perform any CPU, Memory or Graphics Card overclocking return settings to default / normal / auto
See if that helps the issue at all.

i made a search and i uninstall some MSI drivers that have the NTIOLib_X64.sys file ... i hope this will fix my problem.. Thank you so much

Me too. Keep us posted and of course attach any new dump files if the problem persists.

hi.. goodevening.. its been a week since the last time i opened my computer.. and lately i just received the error again. still the BBcode 116..

heres the dump file View attachment

I think that your focus should be on the TDR (Timeout Detection and Recovery) error. So take some time and read this article NVIDIA Statement on TDR Errors - NVIDIA Forums
Paying particular attention to the information regarding "Common issues that can cause a TDR" and "Things to check first" items.
Consider running FurMark (BURN-IN test, full screen, with whatever screen resolution you typically are using) watch your temps. Also consider overall system temperature issues as well as a possible problem with your PSU (Power Supply Unit) may be inadequate, failing and heating up itself or just unable to supply proper and consistent volts and amps required by your Nvidia card.

Good day..I ran the Furmark software and while testing it.. i noticed that the temps. is raising higher than 60.. then all of a sudden restarted..
there might be some problem with my PSU, i dont know..
here's the dump file. View attachment

I guess i should upgrade my PSU unit.. since my PSU is buil-in from the casing... this is the only and last thing i need to do to fix my problem... Thanks :)

Temperatures in the 60c range are not anything to be concerned about with your Nvidia GeForce GT 220, typically when running FurMark you'll likely see your temperature rise rather rapidly into the 60+ range but with a FurMark load of 99% or so you should see the temps level off somewhere near 68 to 69 degrees if the card is receiving proper cooling (fan functioning properly and free of accumulated dust, dirt and debris).
My concern is that your machine crashed, rebooted and produced another VIDEO TDR FAILURE (116).
Can you confirm that the card and the rest of your system is receiving proper cooling?
Do you have the option of trying another video card?
Regarding your PSU, I think that that is actually the problem. Looks like the specs for that unit is 18amps on +12Volts and I believe that particular card requires considerably more. Google your power supply and I think you will find other instances of issues with that particular unit being somewhat inferior regarding what it has available, it's 600 Watts but doesn't have the requisite muscle available in respect to amps.
