BSOD when starting my PC, should be caused by video card driver

When I start my PC and goes to the login screen, my PC just stop responding and some blue flickering spots appear on my screen.
Then a BSOD shown up and said
"attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed"
This continue to happens when I reboot my PC.
I downloaded my video card driver from the Nvidia website so it's not a third-party driver.

Thanks for any help!

Hi IvanS1069.

Update the display driver to the latest from Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers.

When done, Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark
Take a screenshot of the furmark window before closing it. Upload the screenshot for us. Also let us know if you have experienced any crash/BSOD and/or artifacts during the test.

Also report us for any further BSOD.

OK, roll it back to the previous version. Device Manager - Roll Back Driver

Then do the stress test.

I installed the video driver again and it's now normal, maybe for some hours.
I carried out the test and here's the screen capture

Quality has been lowered for smaller size.
No BSOD occured currently, but there maybe BSOD again later suddenly, from my experience.

So this occurred again just now for no reason.
I am just typing on a website and my PC crashed.
From WhoCrashed, it said the crash is caused by nvlddmkm.sys, code 0x116

There is another graphics option available for your motherboard A75M-HVS ...... Integrated AMD Radeon HD 65XX/64XX graphics in Llano APU. Try it, if your processor supports it.

Otherwise borrow a graphics card from friends or family just for a testing purpose ... just to apply and see how it goes.

We are having hints that teh graphics card is failing, just not getting a full proof as the Furmark test passed.

I am still using my own video card
Another BSOD occurred jus now.
A clock interrupt was not received on a secondary processor within the allocated time interval.
What does that mean?
