BSOD playing Guild Wars 2, error 0x00000116

I don't really know what the problem is, I just bought my laptop 2-3 weeks ago. If anybody can reach out, it would be thoroughly appreciated.

Edit : Oh, and yes, my graphic driver is outdated as I received feedback that the new version wasn't all that good and compatible with GW2. Shall I try a more previous version than the latest? Thought I really don't know how.

Before I downloaded GW2, I used to play lots of Steam MMO's for hours on end especially on weekends, namely TF2 and C9. They crashed or "hung" / froze, but never BSOD's, and only rarely did the freezes happen. But when I first played GW2, my first try crashed because I missed a few files that still needed to be downloaded. And if I remember correctly, my 2nd playtime on GW2 was fine, though I think my 3rd or 4th was when the BSOD's started happening quite frequently. Soon it affected my other games I don't know why, TF2 started crashing on the STARTUP! Never did this happen before! And it also affected League of Legends, a graphically weak game you can check it, to cause freezes but fortunately the game would resume after about 3 seconds of freezing. But still! LoL freezing?

I'll also try to uninstall McAfee though I still haven't gotten around to install NOD32.

Thank you Dave and mars. I have a question btw, I've done some googling and was wondering if these steps will work : Handling "nvlddmkm.sys" Crash
BSOD error by NVLDDMKM.SYS

Yesterday when I ran out of options and was waiting for a respone I gave the driver update a chance, and since I still had class tomorrow I tried it. All seemed well when I got to test it for 2 minutes.

Now for the good news and bad news. Good news is, just now I tried to play GW2 and I made it till the loading screen to the character but that was it. There was something like 306.97 driver not responding or something, so I guess it was because of the driver update. The good news is, I didn't get a BSOD! Hope this help you guys. I'll try again and follow up with a screenie if it does crash again.
It's from my other post in Maintenance and Performance.
Thank you koolkat77

Yes, I was.
Unfortunately the Nvidia link to its forums is broken I think?

Furmark test? Hardware um... compatible with each other? RMA?
Well...
I just used the restore point as suggested by dave/britton/mars I cant remember, cause as the feedback said, ver. 306.97 had some issues. It actually caused TF2 to freeze forever which had me force shutdown by holding power. And yeah besides that... I don't really understand the other terms you said sorry. Oh, I'm also trying driver version 306.23, heard mention of GW2. Worth a shot.
