Windows 7: Started getting a BSOD with ntoskrnl.exe and now nvlddmkm.sys

Started getting a BSOD with ntoskrnl.exe and now nvlddmkm.sys

Everything was fine with my computer until Tuesday when I got a random crash. What actually happened was I was watching a video and the sound just started to skip and the computer froze. No BSOD and I have to turn off my computer. So I get that kind of crash or a BSOD that sometimes doesn't create a dump file. I have been doing research on this for a while now and I have tried many things so far. I did a system restore that unfortunately erased my other crash dumps, which showed ntoskrnl.exe, so now I only have two. But the problem still exists. Today I have been getting nvlddmkm.sys included in the crashes so I updated my nvidia drivers from 320.18, that had actually caused me no trouble, but I still got the BSOD. I have been in safe mode almost all day running a virus scan that just turned up clean and I haven't crashed yet so I am convinced this is a software or driver issue as all my hardware is new except for the video card, unless that is failing but I haven't seen any artifacts or anything like that. Next thing I am going to do is run memtest but the built in windows one showed no problems.

So I have uploaded my zip folder there. Some of the crash dumps that I used to have showed Page fault in nonpaged area just to let you guys know. Thanks for the help.

If you want to run a better memory test take a look at the link below . Windows memory diagnostic test only runs 2 passes

Just got a new BSOD after the memtest when I came into the OS. This one doesn't sound so good. Attached it.

The only thing that the Intel Driver Update utility told me download was the Ethernet driver. I updated the USB driver as well and had already updated the nvidia driver after I saw that error. So before I updated the Intel stuff I got a bsod while I was away which I got a dump for. After I updated I got a few more bsod's but some didn't create a dump. I have attached the three I have.

I already updated the USB 3.0 driver. Did the others too. Ill report back if I get another blue screen. Also, I find it odd that all of these drivers decide to kill themselves at the same time. Is something else the cause?

Might want to run chkdsk and SFC scannow

press [ENTER]

When you type chkdsk /F /R you will get this message

Code:
The type of the file system is NTFS.
Cannot lock current drive.

Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another
process.  Would you like to schedule this volume to be
checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N)

When you type " Y " and press [Enter] you get this message below

Code:
This volume will be checked the next time the system restarts.

C:\Windows\system32>
Close the command prompt window by typing exit and press [enter] Restart the PC manually .

When you're back inside Windows. Open up Powershell by clicking on type Powershell inside and press [ENTER] . Inside the Powershell paste the command below

Code:
get-winevent -FilterHashTable @{logname="Application"; id="1001"}| ?{$_.providername –match "wininit"} | fl timecreated, message | out-file Desktop\CHKDSKResults.txt
and Press [Enter] upload the CHKDSKResults.txt file

SFC /scannow

Open up an Elevated Command Prompt. Click on in type CMD . Right click on CMD under Programs (1) choose . On the User Access Control window click on the Yes button . Command Prompt opens up to C:\Windows\System32>_

If any corrupted files are found run SFC 2 more times with restarts in between each other . Then upload the CBS.log located in C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log
