Game executing crash

My system crashes each time I try to open a game,I haven't attempted doing much other than that so it could likely crash in other situations as well.I tried doing a health test but an error message poped saying that it couldn't load about 7 counters(memory,cache disk etc).
Windows7 professional,intelQ9300,GIgabyte X48 DS5,4gb OCz blade.The OS is about 8days old.

All your dumps point to nvlddmkm.sys, part of your Nvidia driver
You are getting a TDR error

Remove the nvidia driver using driver sweeper :http://www.guru3d.com/category/driversweeper/

Update to the beta driver: http://www.nvidia.com/object/win7-wi...ta-driver.html

Causes:
Bad memory/GPU/PSU
Incorrect RAM timings
Overheating (8800GT is known to overheat)

This was likely caused by the following module: nvlddmkm.sys
Bugcheck code: 0x116 (0xFFFFFA800653B4E0, 0xFFFFF8800FF73CF8, 0x0, 0x2)

I get an error that the program isn't compatible with the current edition of windows while trying to install those drivers.I forgot to mention that my VGA specifically is an XFX alpha dog edition.

You need to install them in compatibility mode... Compatibility mode allows a older program written for an earlier versions of Windows to possibly run in Windows 7. You can also use Compatibility mode to always have a program to Run as an administrator.

There is no windows 7 option listed.I tried the windows vista sp2,Xp sp3 compatability modes and it still poped the same error.

Eventually,my VGA was wasted due to dust accumulation.The technician showed me pictures of the chips with concretefied dust on it.I was playing on my PC while a renovation took place near it's room so I think that could likely be the cause.As far as I remember,the machine was also covered with a veil so better have it completely removed from the range of dusts if you come through a similar situation.
Thanks for your time.
