Windows 7: Computer crashing randomly, boots with black screen and cursor

Computer crashing randomly, boots with black screen and cursor

Hello friends,

Today my computer started crashing. Whenever the crash occurred my computer sounded incredibly loud, ostensibly with fans blazing. Additionally, I noticed the crashing was occurring during gaming (but it hadn't ever before), so I put a temperature monitor on my second screen. I observed that it was crashing at only about 80-83 degrees, which had never led to a crash before. My card is a GTX 760 and should, from what I have read, be able to survive 83 degrees without my computer crashing. Later in the day, my computer started crashing randomly. Then, whenever I booted normally I would only get a black screen with a white cursor after logging in. Then I reinstalled graphics drivers and the computer worked fine for half an hour and started crashing again. An hour later and it will only boot to the black screen with a white cursor (although safe mode working is absolutely fine albeit running on my secondary screen for some reason). Some of the crashes have recorded as bsods by my computer and I have done what the sticky says with them. I believe the issue is my card going bad but I would love a more knowledgeable opinion from the wonderful people here. The log files are attached.

Thanks in advance!

I only just remembered that I have a bootable windows 7 on a separate hard drive from a month ago. It is running updated nvidia drivers and was completely fine before I switched to the os installed on my SSD. I selected it in the boot menu and it booted to windows and did the same crash as always about a minute later. This leads me to conclude its a hardware problem. Additionally, it seems likely that the card is screwed up although the psu and the card are both under a year old. I'm still under warranty so I think I will send it back to gainward. Any thoughts?
