    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.

    A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

    Attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed.

    If this is the first time you've seen this Stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

    Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any Windows updates you might need.

    If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use Safe Mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode.

    There are some registry keys that can be used to control the behavior of TDR and may be useful for additional testing and troubleshooting. These keys are all in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\GraphicsDrivers. These keys/values may need to be created if they are not there, but if they are missing then they are using the default value.

    The first key determines whether TDR is enabled or disabled and what it actually does when it detects a timeout:

    Value Name TdrLevel
    Type REG_DWORD
    Possible Values 0 - Detection is Disabled
    1 - Bug Check on Timeout
    3 - Recover on Timeout (default)

    This value may be useful to disable TDR
