The driver read isn't helping me much, here's the current driver for your graphics card. I would suggest running this to install the latest driver. Reboot your machine, then see if you can replicate the issue.

NVIDIA DRIVERS 306.97WHQL

I have that version installed, just forced a BSOD. I tried uploading the .dmp file alone and I'm being told i don't have permission. Access is denied etc.

Okay, does the system still blue screen without the graphics card installed? It's possible that the card is failing, although diagnosing those can be a bit tricky.

Its happened once or twice yeah, but very rarely. Usually when I'm messing about with drivers, which is understandable.

I meant does WoW crash without the graphics card in? You will have to tweak your WoW graphics settings, but this will give us a better idea of what's crashing.

Yeah, if you just use the intel chip, does WoW crash? I'm not 100% sure, but I think if you enabled the lowest graphics settings in WoW, you probably could run it... hopefully you didn't log out in a busy city.

Play around a bit and see if it crashes. How does the fan/heatsink look on the graphics card? When it's plugged in, does the fan spin up at all? Overheating is the first reason for crashes on GPUs... but it could also be a bad piece of memory on the card.
