    A Google search of this error shows this is some kind of Graphics problem. I would start by reseating your graphics card (if it is a separate card) or obtaining the latest driver for whichever OS you are using. It's possible your Graphics Card is going bad. If you have integrated graphics, you might need to add a graphics card (you do not say, if this is a desktop this is possible, a laptop much more difficult) You might need to visit a qualified technician.

    This is known as a TDR (Timeout Detection and Recovery) fault. What happens is the Graphics Display driver for the installed graphics card stops responding. When this happens, windows wil stop and restart the driver to fix the problem.
