    VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE (116)
    Attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed (process involved in this instance was nvlddmkm.sys).

    Now you can try to fix it by uninstalled the currently installed nVidia drivers, then remove any left over files with Driver Sweeper or Driver Clean Pro (both have free versions available on internet). Then reboot, download newest WHQL nVidia drivers, and install them.

    Also ensure that airflow in your desktop casing is optimal to keep temperatures in check.

    If that doesn't work out, then you may have to stress test your graphic card, you can do that with either running OCCT or Furmark (until the temperatures max out or you start having problems (in which case I hope you have this thing is in warranty). Regards
