I have attached the image of the first error and the crash dump. Edit* The driver was not updated, the driver which had this issue was the 306.23 driver.
Generally this is a hardware error. It happens as the GPU is taking more time than permitted to display graphics to your monitor. We tried with different driver versions, got the same results. Now, IMHO, if you try to increase the GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) processing time by adjusting the Timeout Detection and Recovery registry value, It will not be a good attempt, as said here:

I would suggest you to not modify the registries if you are not sure yourself what you are doing. Coz those settings will continue in registry even after you change the GPU. So better you replace your GPU.
So are you saying I need to replace my GPU? Also how do I change the the timeout detection and recovery registry value back to normal if I already changed it with the "fix it for me" application on this page you linked to me http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2665946

Edit* Also do you think this "hardware issue" might have anything to do with the 32 inch hdtv I started using as a monitor? - In addition did you check the latest crash dump from the bsod that happened right after the "display driver has stopped responding and has recovered errors?" Is that a separate issue or the same thing.

If you have changed the registry values, a system restore to a date earlier than today, or a repair install will get teh right registry values back.

BTW, concentration got troubled for some unwanted situations .... missed the crash dump to check. Yes, that is graphics related, undoubtedly, but indicating to LucidLogix Virtu.

Earlier I have noticed that stop 0x116 issue got solved by uninstalling Virtu, but you may try to update it as a test before uninstalling it. Get it from lucidlogix with GPU Solution

Saying again, sorry for missing the crash dump. My concentration to the issue got hampered.

The hardware issue should not be connected with the monitor, but might be connected with the virtualization of GPU.

Keep the decision of replacing the GPU pending before the Virtu update/uninstall test completes.

It is used vor GPU virtualiazation. about lucidlogix
You have it installed
Code:
Start Menu\Programs\VIRTU
And it is running.

NAMEDESCRIPTIONFILETYPESTARTED
virtuwddm VirtuWDDM c:\windows\system32\drivers\virtuwddm.sys Kernel Driver Yes

Uninstall it, and free up the startup. Windows does not need any other program to auto start with it, but the auto start programs often conflicts and causes various problems including BSODs.
  1. Click on the Start button
  2. Type “msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
  3. Select the “Startup” tab.
  4. Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
  5. Apply > OK
  6. Accept then restart.

Alright I removed the lucidlogix virtu completely, but this morning I still had the same issue again.
I got repeated "your display driver has stopped responding and has recovered" for 5 minutes again (though this time it was while streaming on youtube) followed by a BSOD. I have attached an image of the error again and the New Crash Dump.

You said that you tried the fixit "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered" error in Windows 7 or Windows Vista too?

As a last try, swap with a few other versions of display driver (other than 310.** and 311.**) and if you still have the same result, there is no way but abandon the GPU.

Personally I faced that issue, koolkat77 guided me over all possible fixes and later checking the temperature of my GPU over time, abandoned that one. After the GPU got replaced, never faced that incidence over last 9 months.

Unfortunate I will have to replace it but ok
Also it is not the temperature. I have been monitoring it.
