Windows 7: Display driver stops responding, Following Bsod.

Bsod caused by display driver. -nvlddmkm.sys-

-This only happens when i have a game open-
So i noticed that starting this month i have problems with my Nvidia drivers.
When i am playing the screen freezes, screen goes blank and it returns later. Then it says it has recovered.
Problem is, sometimes when this happens the computer just bluescreens and restarts. This happens once a day.
I tried my best solving this, i installed all updates of windows and did a clean install on Nvidia drivers.
-The computer does not generate crash dumps when this happens, Which i said it should-

Hiya and welcome to SevenForums!

Run Display Driver Uninstaller(DDU)
Make sure you tick the Uninstall C:/AMD and C:/NIVIDA folders while you are in DDU when you are done running DDU install your graphics driver again. This is the guide for DDU: Display Driver Uninstaller: How to use

Next time a BSOD occurs snap a picture of it.

Im so sorry for this uber late response, but i didn't had access to internet for some time thanks to some other issues.

But i did your fix, it worked for 1 week. Atleast i thought, But now it crashed playing Killing Floor 2, no Bsod either, not at all.
Instead, after like 4 attempts of recovery of the driver, windows just froze. Pretty much a Bsod without showing a Bsod, no response from the keyboard, as none of the lights worked i pretty much figured it just totally gave up and forced a restart. Next time there might be a Bsod, ill try to make a picture.

Well right now the driver does fail once more, and crashes whatever i have open with it. But it seems to recover nicely atleast, so thats a improvement i guess. (The driver fails atleast 1-2 times a day).
