I have a Windows 10 PC, and I use it mostly for games. Whenever I try to play games like Asphalt, I get this error message “VIDEO_TDR_ ERROR” along with the code 0x116. Can someone suggest me ways on how to solve this error and why does it happen? I have tried uninstalling a few games, but this error continues.
What Does Error Code 0x116 Mean And How To Fix It?
This error indicates that an attempt to recover from a Timeout and resetting the display driver has failed. This stability issue occurs when a system is busy processing intensive graphics operation and is unable to process an end user’s command.
A process called Timeout detection and recovery (TDR) whose default timeout is 2 seconds occurs while playing games. For video calls, due to the TDR process, the system’s GPU scheduler calls the Display Miniport Driver’s function to reinitialize the driver reset the GPU. During this process, the driver is made to not access memory or the hardware and gives it a short time for currently running threads to complete. If the threads are incomplete, then this error is issued.
To fix this error, to install all the latest updates for your Display Driver, so that it supports the TDR process. Since you are using the system to play games, you can use the system in Safe mode. In Safe mode, the essential drivers only will be used. Run the Windows Memory Diagnostic tool to test the memory to see which process uses more memory.
