CPU overheating, memory failing, HDD errors.

Check temps under load, run OCCT, download the drive test sofware for your HDD and run it.

A stress tester that targets cpu and ram. http://www.ocbase.com/perestroika_en/index.php?Download

You need to monitor your cpu temps while its running with HWmonitor, Realtemp (Intel).

You may need to re-apply the thermal paste on your cpu or your gpu might be heating up.

Check around the fan inlet and outlets for a build up of dust and fluff blocking airflow.

Download and run 3d Mark to test your gpu and ram also along with the HDD test to eliminate that.

Check your temps 1st, if its under warranty it shouldn't be overheating.

Check your HDD and air vents, you should be able to take the back panels off without voiding the warranty, depends what you can access from the back but you may see something obvious like a clump of dust.

That BCCode: 116 you're getting is a VIDEO_TDR_ERROR

It "indicates that an attempt to reset the display driver and recover from a timeout failed."

Monitor your laptop's graphics card temperature to make sure it's not overheating. Make sure the vents are not obstructed.
