Actually, the suggested procedure for the 1st BSOD has long been to wait and see if it happens again.
BSOD's only happen for 2 reasons:
For convenience sake, we sub-divide software into Windows and 3rd party software, then here's the breakdown of BSOD error frequency:
- 3rd party drivers (over 90% of BSOD's are due to this) (MS says 70% as of mid-2016)
- hardware (less than 10% of BSOD's are due to this) (MS says 10% as of mid-2016)
- Windows problems (less than 1% of BSOD's are due to this - as long as Windows Updates are fully up to date). (MS says 5% as of mid-2016)
- also, MS says that 15% are due to unknown causes (the crash is too corrupted to tell) as of mid-2016
For the type of error that you have (STOP 0x119) the most effective "fix" IME is to clean out the old drivers and update to the latest version for your system.
If that doesn't fix it, then we start looking for hardware problems (using these free hardware diagnostics: http://www.carrona.org/hwdiag.html )
