nvlddmkm.sys causing BSOD at start up, or BLACK SCREENS after SLEEP!!

Hi all,
I am the proud owner of two Titans, and have recently been experiencing these symptoms in win7 64 :

1. BSOD after FIRST computer start up. nvlddmkm.sys is the culprit.
Then after second reboot all is fine.

2. AFTER sleep the computer turns on but the screens are pitch black. Takes a few reboots to get everything back to normal.

Other than this, computer works perfectly.

After long research and trying about everything, we found the culprit to be Logitech webcam drivers interfere with nvlddmkm.sys.

If you are getting any of these symptoms, please uninstall Logitech webcam software.

AVG is causing problems here, and is well known cause for BSODs, remove this program using the AVG Removal Tool, and then install and run full scans with these free and proven alternatives which work with Windows 7.
