Windows 7: Seemingly random GPU freezes

I have two shots from GPU-Z. These were taken right after i watched a movie, and the computer has been on since yesterday. It says the fan is at 0% which is untrue...it is definitely on and spinning, kinda loud too.

I currently experience these errors also. While I'm on the desktop I'll randomly get errors like 'Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered.'

When playing a game I will sometimes get a BSOD and a hard reset is required. It used to happen with a Geforce 8800 GTS. I have recently upgraded my card to a Geforce GTX 275, and I still have the same problem. Running 186.18 Nvidia drivers, but I seem to get these problems no matter what driver I use.

My temps are also fine and I don't get these problems when I boot into Vista.

Its defiantly not your graphics card causing the BSODs... If your bios has an option for HPET then try disabling it, the other usual cause is overclocking or a PCI device causing the lockup.

If your bios doesn't have the HPET option (double check your bios, it's sometimes hidden away) then try underclocking various devices and removing any PCI cards

Can't seem to find HPET under my bios. I've checked a few times. My motherboard is an Asus P5Q Pro if that is of any help.

I have no PCI cards installed and my system isn't overclocked. I'll try underclocking a few components later. I still find it strange that it is a windows 7 only issue.

I have the same exact issue. I will check my bios, but i also have nothing in PCI slots.
