    Exclamation Screen has distortion after minutes of usage then restarts


    Hi my screen has gone bad, i don't know if my video card is already busted or just corrupted driver.

    It happens after I forgot to shutdown my pc for 5 hours, the temp in my room is a humid due to hot weather. The next time i turned on my PC distortion all the screen shows then it would black out then show up again about a couple of times. Then on the notification it shows that Windows had stop NVIDIA 191.xx and has restarted. But it doesn't cure the issue after those blinks it would totally black-down then restarts.

    I was able to get a copy of errors that windows provided:
    Problem signature:
    Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
    OS Version: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.256.48
    Locale ID: 3081

    Additional information about the problem:
    BCCode: 116
    BCP1: 85A6A510
    BCP2: 8DEEA1A0
    BCP3: 00000000
    BCP4: 00000002
    OS Version: 6_1_7600
    Service Pack: 0_0
    Product: 256_1

    Any idea how to resolve this or to what I should do?

    Thanks in advance

    Based on your description it sounds like an overheating problem with your video card.

    First make sure the fan on your video card is turning and isn't clogged with dust. Beyond that, you would need to try to cool the ambient temperature more or try to cycle more air through the system (ie with more fans).
