Windows 7: BSOD 116 faulty graphics card or faulty drivers?

BSOD 116 faulty graphics card or faulty drivers?

I believe the initial crash was caused by overheating. Based on the fact that I have gotten it to work for a short amount of time, more on that later. Booting up with the drivers for my graphics card enabled causes BSOD to appear but when it is disabled everything is fine. I can boot into safe mode, and I have already reinstalled windows. My motherboard is Asus B85M-e and my graphics card is Nvidia EV3A GTX 590.
How I got it to work for a short amount of time : I reinstalled windows and then installed my integrated Ethernet driver. After that was out of the way I installed and used driver booster to install the rest of my drivers. I then noticed there was a missing driver that the program could not install that was named Simple PCI Controller. So I thought I should install that driver using my motherboard's driver installation disk. It then worked up until I decided to change the settings in Nvidia Control panel.
I also do not know how faulty graphics cards behave so it might be my graphics card. The game I was playing when this started was Life is Strange if that is needed.

Went and restored back to when driver booster hadn't installed anything. Haven't updated windows all the way yet but I am not sure how much it will help because I had all the updates before I went and reinstalled windows 7. Will update in the mean time though but here is another dmp file.

Updating prevents us from making analysis that may be totally incorrect.

Do you have 2 GTX 590's?

I am as up to date as windows will let me, going into windows update history shows a lot of failed updates but most of the updates were successful. I also use more than one monitor. Here is another dmp in case it is needed.

Please check ASUS for BIOS updates, it looks like they have released a new version a few days ago.

I notice you've removed the GPU, have any crashes occured after removal of the GPU?

Please remove DB3 completely, you don't need it

  • When it is finished reboot your system
  • Open again an admin command prompt
  • Enter sfc/scannow again
If sfc/scannow says "Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them" after the second SFC, please upload the cbs.log file located at {windows partition}\Windows\Logs\CBS\, if the file is too large try a 3rd party uploader like dropbox, onedrive, google drive, mediafire etc.
System File Check(SFC a.k.a. Windows Resource Protection) needs to have your system rebooted in order for sfc to try to fix the problems that it finds.

Make a photo of the result and post it.

The crashes do not occur when the graphics card is removed, also whenever the drivers for the gpu are disabled. Sorry I just haven't gotten around to uninstalling DB. I have screenshots of all of the info you wanted. I had to boot in safe mode so you could have one of my graphics card.
