BSOD while playing pretty much any game, 0x000000c4

Hello and merry Christmas!

I've been having issues with my graphics card drivers and windows crashing since Windows update updated my display driver at the end of November.

I tried muckering about with driver verifier, though with it enabled windows crashes way before i can login and it seems it's not dumping anything.

I've attached all the normal minidumps though if anyone can figure out anything from those.
The crashes started on 30th nov, though for some reason the dumps from the first two crashes on 30.nov, and 3rd dec are missing.

Any help would be appreciated.

EDIT: Forgot to mention that i have tried older, beta and reinstalling the latest drivers for my GFX Card , none of those made any difference.

Okay lets try this. We do not go looking through a bunch of zip looking for specs.
If you do it as requested your specs will be in the lower left of your every post. Any one trying to help will just have to tick My System Specs in your post. Please tick My System Specs in this post and you will see what I mean.

I'm sorry, shoud have read it bit more carefully, thought you linked the SF Diag tool, i can understand why people would be wary of opening random zips uploaded by unknown people... It's done now however.

And i might add that i just updated my chipset drivers and flashed my bios.. and there was a problem with the bios, the first flashing failed, it didnt boot up, just kept giving me "Reading failed!" error untill i removed all devices except my keyboard, then i was able to enter the flash utility again and flash the bios again, and on the second try it worked... was slightly worried there for a minute.

I'm having almost the same issues, and with exactly the same GPU. I don't know if that's a fluke or it's something about this particular GPU.

I've heard that the bios in MSI's GTX560 Ti had too low voltage that caused some trouble with some people, i've raised mine by 0.012 but it didn't work obviously. If you're brave enough, download nvidia inspector and raise yours by a bit more.

Hmmm....that's interesting. I've been having these BSOD's recently, and almost tried everything, reformatted twice and updated drivers, but none worked. So, I'm currently thinking of buying a new GPU as I think that it might be a faulty GPU, but still not sure though.

As for the voltage, I'm not really an expert, so I don't want to mess with that xD, but I do have MSI afterburner and it says that the voltage is currently at 987.
