I am using a Lenovo T61p laptop running windows 7 Pro with Service Pack 1
The computer occasionally gets a blue screen of death complaining about the display driver.
I believe the only program that was running at the time of the blue screen was IE but I think it also happened once when no programs were running and the machine was sitting idle.
The error is:
The VIDEO_TDR_ ERROR bug check has a value of 0x00000116. This indicates that an attempt to reset the display driver and recover from a timeout failed.
After this error occurs, the machine then can no longer boot into normal mode. It will however boot into safe mode.
To temporarily fix the problem and allow the computer to boot into normal mode, I have to run Startup Repair during the boot process. The problem eventually returns though.
I worked through this issue in the Malware forum but was redirected here once it was determined that this was not a malware issue. Here is a link to that thread so that you can see what we tried
Thank you for any advice you could offer.
