Windows 7: Just had a bluescreen while playing Guild Wars 2

Just had a bluescreen while playing Guild Wars 2

Hey i just had a bluescreen while playing guildwars 2. Except it wasn't really a bluescreen. The screen flashed then stayed pink. I could hear sound for a few more seconds but that was about it. Never had this happen to this computer before.

My temps while playing this game have been around 44c on CPU and up to an 80c on the GPU. Never had any artifacts while playing so i don't believe it was a heat issue.
I also did a driver sweeper removing the previous drivers and sweeping all nvidia boxes listed before installing the newest Nvidia drivers the other day. Not sure what is going on. Drivers are the latest WHQL 306.23

I have attached the zip as was instructed.

Just had another crash in the same area. Ran WhoCrashed and it is pointing to drivers again.

On Sun 9/16/2012 7:50:00 PM GMT your computer crashed
crash dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\091612-3603-01.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: nvlddmkm.sys (nvlddmkm+0xAD6004)
Bugcheck code: 0x116 (0xFFFFFA800C2152E0, 0xFFFFF8800FEFC004, 0xFFFFFFFFC000009A, 0x4)
Error: VIDEO_TDR_ERROR
file path: C:\Windows\system32\drivers\nvlddmkm.sys
product: NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 301.42
company: NVIDIA Corporation
description: NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 301.42
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 (NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 301.42 , NVIDIA Corporation).
Google query: nvlddmkm.sys NVIDIA Corporation VIDEO_TDR_ERROR

The first crash was with the newest drivers. This is with my older rolledback drivers. Could it just be my videocard that is failing? Again the temps were only in the 70's on the GPU before the crash.



UPDATE: I remembered that when i bought this pc there was an overclock already installed. It was set to 3.7. I went in the bios and set everything to auto and disabled the "Turbo" feature. The CPU is now at factory i believe (3.3). I also underclocked my GPU but to be honest i really had no idea what i was doing with that. I read to lower the sliders about 20% as that was working for people who were experiencing similar problems to mine. I was able to get through the area i was bluescreening at without any problems.

I would still like any assistance if something else can be learned from reading the attachment from my first post as i still don't feel comfortable just yet.
