Windows 7: BSOD perhaps GPU related

BSOD perhaps GPU related

I'm running x64 bit 7 Home Premium on a Alienware M11x R2. I just reformatted (they give you a real 7 DVD) and exchanged drives for an SSD but I still get the BSODs.

I only use the system for WoW, email, and to edit my pictures--so I don't have a large program base to troubleshoot--but it only crashes in WoW, and completely randomly at that.

Things I have done:
Ran a FULL suite of Memtest passes with 100% pass.
Ran the full suite of Dell diagnostics pre-boot
Forced the optimus to always use the Nvidia GPU when running WoW
Have the latest video drivers from Nvidia as of last week.

Temps idle (measured in RealTemp) 45 and while running WoW peaks at 56.

It didn't always crash--used to run beautifully but I have only had it for about 3 months now...

Any ideas? I attached the report.

Hi Bananapie and welcome to SF
The crashreports in fact point at your NVIDEA driver but I found, that you still share IRQs and Memory with Intel HD graphics (the Intel-build in graphics solution)
See if you can disable that in BIOS and let us know if that changes anything.
(I'm not an Intel guy but you should find that under "Integrated Peripherals" or similar)

BSOD Most likely GPU-related
Getting BSODs where the screen goes black, fans go crazy and computer restarts. I can only speculate on why it's happening but either it's completely random or it's got something to do with me using Google Chrome. I've tried rolling my GPU drivers back to last stable build but that did not fix the...

BSOD Apparent related to IPOD Touch and/or related services
My PC has recently started erratic BSOD crashes after a year of bliss. I installed UBUNTU as second boot option and it seems to work normally. Would rather not just give up on Windows 7 - particularly as this is x64 version and UBUNTU is only x86 version; I also have some windows-only software...
