Consider the following scenario:

  • You have a computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008.
  • You configure the display settings to use dual displays in clone mode.
  • You unplug the secondary display.
  • The system display turns blank because you have configured the system to turn off the display output after a period of inactivity.
  • While the output to the secondary display port is turned off, you hot-plug a display to the secondary display port.

In this scenario, you receive the following Stop error message:

Stop 0x00000116 (parameter1, parameter2, 00000000, parameter4)


  • The parameters in these Stop error messages may vary, depending on the actual configuration.
  • The symptoms of a Stop error may vary, depending on your computer’s system failure options. For example, the computer may restart when a Stop error occurs.
