1. Uninstall the drivers completely
2. Reboot the computer
3. Run Windows Update and check the optional updates for the driver Microsoft recommends

- it will be outdated with respect to the manufacturer's driver, but it will be signed/tested by Microsoft

4. Install it, and monitor the system for BSOD's.
I just did this and I'm doing another test with OCCT and loging it with GPU-Z, I'll edit this reply when it's done.

For the first time I didn't get a BSOD when I started the test, so I'm quessing that there is/was something wrong with my drivers.

I ran it for 7 min, I there was a guide NVIDIA/AMD Video Card - Test with OCCT , where 7 min was the example in the image, I could do a longer test tomorrow but I'm considering going to bed it's allready geting sunny outside.

Quote:
According to your GPUz log file, your card never got off idle. The GPU clock, the memory clock and even the GPU temp never moved. That indicates that your GPU was never involved in the crash. Perhaps the game/app crashed, the PSU shut down or something of that nature. Your GPU clock was at 324 when the log started and 324 when it crashed.
But in this short test this was not the case, in all of my previous attempts it would crash when it left idle like you mentioned. So I can peform a longer test tomorrow but for now the cause of my BSOD must have been my drivers. But I'm not sure which driver I should get since I tried a few and all of them had the same result, since isn't it unwise to not have a driver from nvidia and roll with the one windows installed?

But that's it for now I'm going to bed, thanks for the help so far it's been wonderful!

I always download from Nvidia, but I have not had the problems you have had. Unless I am mistaken, the Windows Update is from Nvidia, it is just an older version.

I'm gonna mark this thread as solved since the problem seem to have vanished, thanks for everything!
I havn't had a BSOD today and I would usually get 1 instantly when launching WoW or after 1,5 hours but now all seems good!
