On Mon 11/25/2013 3:14:01 PM GMT your computer crashed
crash dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\112513-19375-01.dmp

This was probably caused by the following module: nvlddmkm.sys (nvlddmkm+0x1AEA98)
Bugcheck code: 0x116 (0xFFFFFA800B691300, 0xFFFFF8800F1EAA98, 0x0, 0x2)

Error: VIDEO_TDR_ERROR

Bug check description: This indicates that an attempt to reset the display driver and recover from a timeout failed.
A third party driver was identified as the probable root cause of this system error. It is suggested you look for an update for the following driver: nvlddmkm.sys .
Google query: nvlddmkm.sys VIDEO_TDR_ERROR

Looks like an issue with video.  You could possibly have a defective card or you should download the latest driver updates and install them.  If that does not help try swapping for a known good videocard or run a memtest

The error you received was caused by the driver "dxgkrnl.sys". The crash address was "ntoskrnl.exe+75b80"

Have you installed any applications recently? If so I would remove them to see if this resolves your issue.
Also ensure your video card drivers are up to date by visiting the manufacture's website.

Also note that it is possible that this driver could be the innocent victim, where its memory has been modified by some other misbehaving driver, causing it to appear that this driver is the one at fault.

If the issue is occuring regularly, enabling special pool with the Driver Verifier to capture the bad driver as it makes the bad memory allocation.  For further details see : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/244617

So while updating the video driver, I recommend updating other drivers on the system.

Regards,
Alastair.

thank you all very much for your answers.

the first thing i'll do is update the video driver. if the problem persists, i'll run the memtest and driver verifier.

to answer your question, i recently installed vectorworks SP5 upgrade on it. this is a design program and takes a lot of memory

If everything checks out ok even with drivers updated I assume you have this error when running that program?  Might want to check the minimum requirements to see where your system stands against them.  In my opinion minimum requirements is never the point you want to be when running software that can be resource hogs and its better to be at the recommended level or higher.

No nothing at all. i've updated the nvidia driver to the latest. i'll give it 2 days to see if the user reports back any sudden shutdowns. it happened again today
