    As per Microsoft your error is 0x116: VIDEO_TDR_ERROR (the BC Code: 116 tells us the error number)

    The VIDEO_TDR_ ERROR bug check has a value of 0x00000116. This indicates that an attempt to reset the display driver and recover from a timeout failed.

    Are you running Vista? And do you have an Nvidia graphics card or onboard video? There is some information on the web that there can be conflicts with these two.

    If not, the error still indicates issues with the dispaly driver. Try uninstalling and reinstalling your drivers or update.
