Hello ! Welcome to SF !

Seems like the issue is with the nVidia Display card. Reinstall nVidia display drivers. Check this link for assistance. nVidia Driver Cleanup Guide !! « Captain Debugger

Check this article on this Bugcheck STOP 0x116: VIDEO_TDR_ERROR troubleshooting

Update the Drivers:

ASACPI.sys   Fri Aug 13 08:22:52 2004
ATITool.sys  Fri Nov 10 18:38:51 2006
nvoclock.sys Wed Sep 05 07:56:31 2007
Check this article Driver Troubleshooting !! « Captain Debugger

Regarding ASACPI.sys uninstall all the Asus related Utilities then go to C:\Windows\System32\Drivers and rename ASACPI.sys to ASACPI.old

If you have Overclocked your Graphic card under clock it and uninstall ATITool Overclocking Utility. Overclocking can end up in Bluescreen.

Hope this helps,
