Windows 7: BSOD while doing anything graphics intensive (gaming, rendering, etc.)

I'll do some research and I'll come back to this, clearly something's wrong.

EDIT: I'm going to do another render test, but before that, I'm going to try to install the 334.89 version (not the latest version, which is 337.88, the one people say is having problems).

Ok, so updating the drivers didn't work, I'm still getting it.

Just a thought: do you think switching the PCI slot will do anything? I need suggestions...

EDIT2: No new minidump files...

Does anyone have any solutions/opinions?

(PS: I'm at school right now, but today it ends at 9:20 EST)

EDIT: I remembered that my cpu (an amd fx-6300), is, to my recollection, OC'd at 4 GHz. I will try resetting that today.

Download this earlier version from here and follow NVIDIA Drivers - Avoid Problems for the cleanest possible install.

I have tried multiple versions of Nvidia's driver, all with no luck. Any other ideas?

If all drivers are causing issues I would stress test the GPU. Run Furmark for around thirty minutes. Keep an eye on your GPU temperatures while it's running.

Alright, I will try that when I get home in about an hour. Thanks for your help.

Alright, here's news for you. My computer apparently won't even start anymore. My uncle turned it on today and it keeps recovery looping. It's attempting repairs now, I'll keep you updated...

Ok, I used Dzomlija's method (Startup Repair Infinite Loop Recovery), which worked, but after restarting, I noticed that every driver for peripherals has been uninstalled and forced to reinstall. I'm not sure if this is normal, but I will reinstall all drivers just to be safe. After that, I will run Furmark as Boozad said, and see if it works.

So far, so good. The GPU temperature caps at around 80C, around 60 fps at 1366x768 (I have a 1440x900 monitor) in windowed mode. If it finishes and completes a render successfully, I will mark this issue as solved.

Thank you again for your kindness and support.
