yeah the attachment didn't show either.
might not hurt to add this since direct x is also directly involved.

Yeah nothing really seems to have changed.
If you aren't using the hdmi audio out of the nvidia card disable it in playback devices. (right click speaker tray icon)
That specific driver seems to be involved somehow. It could be a conflict if you are using a sound card or other audio device for your sound.

the directX dl and sound thingy seemed to have helped, have only had some minor problems after that. I'll upload the minidump(s) if I get a bsod, so far I've only had a few freezes

yeah it sounds like something is still not quite right, might not hurt to reinstall the related driver.

my audio driver appears to be tied to the nvidia videocard driver, so not really sure how to reinstall it. Intrestingly enough all my crashes now appear to first crash whatever program I'm using, and then crash the entire system afterwards either by restart or bsod. I've attached the dump files from the latest crashes, though I doubt they'll say something new. any new/ more precise ideas regarding the sound drivers? I feel like it might be closing in on the problem

right, so I've been twisting my head on this, and I'm now pretty sure there's something wrong with my video card. What's confusing is that the comp has some days where it will work perfectly, but then others when it crashes after a few minutes of gaming. Whenever it crashes it also won't turn on properly and/or crashes rapidly after launch. After an hour or so it will launch normally again however, and will work neatly until I attempt to make it play a game again..

to sum up in a question: Is it possible to test my video card for faults? and does these other weird symptoms give any other hints as to what may be wrong? The repair shop tends to use a few weeks to fix the comp, and it's been there twice without the problems disappearing, so if there's any way of getting aditional information that may speed up their process and help them actually fix this it would be very helpful.

Edit: added dump files.
