All of these were related to a video reset. You also have some extremely old drivers that need updating.

Quote:
"It's not a true crash, in the sense that the bluescreen was initiated only because the combination of video driver and video hardware was being unresponsive, and not because of any synchronous processing exception".

Since Vista, the "Timeout Detection and Recovery" (TDR) components of the OS video subsystem have been capable of doing some truly impressive things to try to recover from issues which would have caused earlier OSs like XP to crash.

As a last resort, the TDR subsystem sends the video driver a "please restart yourself now!" command and waits a few seconds.

If there's no response, the OS concludes that the video driver/hardware combo has truly collapsed in a heap, and it fires off that stop 0x116 BSOD.

If playing with video driver versions hasn't helped, make sure the box is not overheating.

Try removing a side panel and aiming a big mains fan straight at the motherboard and GPU.

Run it like that for a few hours or days - long enough to ascertain whether cooler temperatures make a difference.

If so, it might be as simple as dust buildup and subsequently inadequate cooling.

I would download cpu-z and gpu-z (both free) and keep an eye on the video temps
STOP 0x116: VIDEO_TDR_ERROR troubleshooting




Old drivers

Code:
winbondhidcir.sys    6/3/2008 10:34:50 AM                                
hidshim.sys    6/3/2008 10:34:55 AM          
Thpevm.SYS    6/29/2009 4:15:37 AM
How To Find Drivers:
Quote:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.
- - The most common drivers are listed on this page: Driver Reference Driver Reference
- - Driver manufacturer links are on this page: Drivers and Downloads

Sorry for being such a headache..

I downloaded it and in the installation notes it says:

"When you boot Windows or select "scan for hardware changes" in Device Manager,
a system with a WPC876xL PnP node prompts you with the "Found New Hardware"
window. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the driver installation:"

But nothing comes up with "Found New Hardware"
