I see that you did not take the suggestion about the display driver given in post #4.

Until and unless the driver is altered, I cannot say anything further.

If you want to continue with troubleshooting, do what is said in post #4.

I actually did wipe my graphics card driver and replaced it with the one you provided, but as I noted earlier, it changed nothing. The PC kept shutting down after a BSOD, even with the fan speed turned to 66%. The graphics card doesn't actually overheat at all, but the PC keeps shutting down.

Just to be sure, I'll also upload the .zip with the driver you provided.

Yes. The suggested driver is applied.
Code:
fffff880`04a9d000 fffff880`05548000   nvlddmkm T (no symbols)           
    Loaded symbol image file: nvlddmkm.sys
    Image path: \SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\nvlddmkm.sys
    Image name: nvlddmkm.sys
    Timestamp:        Fri Mar 15 07:07:00 2013 (51427B3C)
    CheckSum:         00A8D47C
    ImageSize:        00AAB000
    Translations:     0000.04b0 0000.04e4 0409.04b0 0409.04e4
But the same BSOD continues.
Code:
BugCheck 116, {fffffa8007386010, fffff880053d06ac, ffffffffc000009a, 4}

Unable to load image \SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\nvlddmkm.sys, Win32 error 0n2
*** 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+9336ac )

The decision is: it is a hardware issue.

Now we have to search for the reasons of display crash/BSOD in hardware.

Are you overclocking? As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings.

Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

Check if the Power Supply Unit (PSU) supplying adequate power to the computer or not.
eXtreme Power Supply Calculator
Also let us know the wattage of the PSU.

Let us know about all those, specifically, and how it is wanted. Otherwise it will be difficult to arrive at any further decision to isolate the hardware that is failing.

Took a snapshot after running Speccy for a while: http://speccy.piriform.com/results/5...HnA5JLbPyuFfoM

I'm pretty sure I'm not overclocking anything and I'd rather not run Furmark, since it might just burn my apartment down.

Also, I haven't got the slightest clue about PSUs and wattages, sorry.

I'm guessing it isn't caused by inadequate wattage, I've tried several different power outlets and power strips and it seems as if my PC is shutting down quicker and quicker each time. Also, it's a problem that's gotten worse over time.

Will you post the test results?

Because those are better options than any wild guess.
