BSOD new graphics card?

hey everyone, i keep getting blue screen and have tryed loads of things and have no idea how to fix it. another user on here said that it was the graphics card crashing so i have done the following
  • completely removed graphics drivers with driver sweep and installed latest versions.
  • run a stress test with heaven d10 benchmark and it crashed within 30 secs each time.
i have also been told it could be the power supply which i thought before, so i replaced the original 500w with a new 650w around 3 weeks ago. any idea what i need to do now? i have uploaded the nessassary files.

Yeah, you are getting a video TDR problem.
Given you've already taken the appropriate steps with the power supply and the driver.
I'm going to have to side with the card being the source of the issue here.
The only thing I can think to try software side, is running driver sweeper (the latest version it's no longer supported on guru3d.) - Driver Sweeper

and install the previous version of the nvidia driver. As the software debug does show that the nvidia kernel is what's crashing.
This could of course just be because it's sending instructions to the card and getting the wrong answers too.

Probably caused by : nvlddmkm.sys ( nvlddmkm+e1140 )
