LCD Monitor cause BSOD with nvidia driver...?

This might be a stupid question but can a monitor cause your system to BSOD. Because I think my LCD is causing my nvidia drivers to BSOD my windows 7 system.

I purchased a new motherboard, memory, and video card recently. So far the system was working fine for about a week when recently it started giving BSODing me with the nvlddmkm.sys error for my nvidia drivers. I tried to solve the problem but ended up just reformatting and doing a new installation of Win7 64 and even then the same BSOd would come and go. I thought it might be improper nvidia driver installation over the ones installed during setup or a defective video card. It was only after a few tries that I began to see a pattern and it involved my use of monitors. The last time I installed windows I was using an old CRT VGA monitor I have lying around that I use in my workshop when fixing things because I don't have the space at my desk where my LCD is. The system worked fine with the old CRT and then put everything back together checked it one last time then moved it back to my desk and hooked up my LCD via DVI...the BSOD came back. I have the details of the BSOD below and the minidump attached to this thread came someone make anything of this it would be really appreciated! Thanks

If you got any CD with that LCD, install its driver. Windows by default when it detects a new monitor it will install the Generic drivers. You should install the correct driver from your CD

I never got a CD, but both XP and Win 7 has always installed the drivers for it now and in the past perfectly without issue (ViewSonic VX2025WN)
