I'm assuming that atikmdag.sys is causing the issues that I am having. Does anyone know of a way to fix the issues with atikmdag.sys?

Its your AMD display driver which is the cause, either there is a problem with your RAM or the GPU itself
See this for more info STOP 0x116: VIDEO_TDR_ERROR troubleshooting
RAM - Test with Memtest86+
