    I recently Bought Nvidia QuadroFX 3450 (PCI E) , Installed it last night and Nvidia graphics Driver , Installation was fine and I started installing drivers , After I rebooted, I was brought Windows loading screen and then a black screen , I couldn't move my mouse after a few screen blinks it booted into the BSOD (error code 0x00000116) , The screenshot is below :


    My Computer Specs are :


    Windows : Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 - 64bit
    Processor : Dual Core E5700 3.0GHZ
    Motherboard : Intel DG41WV
    RAM : 4GB
    PSU : 420V


    Once i Remove the Nvidia graphics driver from safe mode and restarts the windows starts working fine !!
    I've reset CMOS and other things but no luck :( can anyone help me ??

    maybe try different versions of the drivers. could be something with the drivers you are trying to use.

    Special since Windows 8 and even Windows 7 an Update to the latest BIOS Version is very recommended!

    Your BIOS firmware is probably outdated and I would advice you do an upgrade.

    You could try to remove the Ram Module, take an Pencil Rubber and use it to clean the connector feets of the Ram Modules. After that done Place the first Module in it's slot and start the computer. If works well, ad one more module and do that one after the next one for to see there still a problem.

    Same could be happen for the Graphic Card, use same method for to clean the connector feets and test again.

    It may be that your motherboard does not have a PCI-E 2.0 slot. Only 1.1
