Windows 7: Blue screen of death caused by nvlddmkm.sys, while running some games

Blue screen of death caused by nvlddmkm.sys, while running some games

I have a Alienware M11X R2 with Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit, and this is the only Operating system this computer has ever run besides Ubuntu which is on a separate partition. I have not modified the hardware aside having Dell/Alienware install an extra 4 gigs of DDR3 ram and a 500GB hard drive and i have the I3 CPU. I had no problems with anything until early last week, up until then everything i threw at the system ran fine.

The OS was recently reset to factory settings via Alienrespawn, basically my hard drive was formatted and everything was restored and returned to the state it was in when it arrived at my home via a drive image, and i am still having the problem. I am running the most recent driver from Nvidia, and my computer is roughly two months old and i have not abused or treated it poorly.

I am out of ideas on how to fix this, i figured formatting my hard drive and re-installing a bare bones OS state and re-installing the newest drivers after cleaning out all the traces of them with Drive Sweeper would fix the problem but a few random games such as Need For speed World and SD Gundam Capsule Fighter Beta Blue screen anywhere from 5 minutes in to a hour or more in game. What baffles me is i can play Borderlands or GTA4, or even Crisis all day, for more then 8 hours and never see a single blue screen or very very rarely but as soon as i run one of the above games it blue screens very quickly in most cases.

Any help would be appreciated, the files requested are attached below.

This is rather urgent, and if someone is going to provide me support it needs to be soon since i need this computer for college work which is due this week, and unless someone helps me figure this out soon ill just take things into my own hands again and see if i can make anything change, if that does not work ill just end up calling Dell customer support and see what they can do, i would really rather not do that since, as stated i need this computer for College since i do a lot of Media work in multiple programs and this is the only PC i currently have to do that.

Just ran a video memory test for 30 minutes, it completed 6 full sweeps with 0 errors so i stopped it. So it is clearly not a hardware issue. And the fact i can most the time do just about anything on this machine and never get a blue screen but a few random applications and games trigger it for some reason. So the only thing left that i can think of at this point is possibly the driver for my 335M Graphics Card, the most recent Verde 285.62 WHQL has issues and does not like something about those specific programs. Anyone have further input on this?

Dropped down one driver and everything that has been giving me a blue screen of death still is.
