Windows 7: BSOD within minutes of startup

BSOD within minutes of startup

My brother has recently run into a BSOD on his computer and I've been trying to assist. The issue happens within a few minutes of starting up the computer. It may be related to internet access, as using a web browser seems to speed up the arrival of the crash.

He says that the issue started while playing FIFA 13, and it was soon after a new update to the game.

Going into msconfig and disabling all non-windows services seems to have drastically increased the time that the computer can run properly before it hits the BSOD, but the problem persists.

*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for nvlddmkm.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for nvlddmkm.sys
Probably caused by : nvlddmkm.sys ( nvlddmkm+1df4a1 )
Code:
Usual causes:  Memory corruption, Hardware (memory in particular), Overclocking failure, Installing a faulty or mismatched hardware (especially memory) or a failure after installing it, 3rd party firewall, Device drivers, SCSI/network/BIOS updates needed, Improperly seated cards, Incompatible storage devices, Overclocking, Virus scanner, Backup tool, Bad motherboard, Missing Service Pack
This bugcheck indicates that a unexpected trap occurred in kernel-mode, more specifically looking at the value of the first parameter we can see that a Double Fault has happened, which is when the processor encountered a problem whilst processing a exception or interrupt.
