Windows 7: BSOD Random Occurrences(4E, 1A are main error codes)

I see Windows Update issues in the Application logfile
and Computer Browser service issues in the System logfile

But nothing that could (IMO) be causing artifacts.
Please use this utility to monitor your temps (video card in particular): HWiNFO, HWiNFO32 & HWiNFO64 - Hardware Information and Analysis Tools

Also, carefully have a look inside the case. Unplug it from the wall and hold onto the metal of the case while looking inside. Check for dirt/dust/furballs in the video card cooler. Check to make sure that the video card fan is working. And check to make sure that the power cord to the video card (if so equipped) is firmly seated.

Check other temps and see if there's any dirt/dust/furballs around the other system components. DO NOT use a vacuum cleaner or an air compressor to clean it out - it can damage components. Either blow it out (but don't spit/drool!) - or use canned air to get rid of the excess dirt/dust/furballs.

So I ran the program and monitored the temps of my components. My GPU never exceeded 70 degrees Celsius. Today though I still got artifacts.

Can't recall if I've asked you to run the video tests from here: Additional Hardware Diagnostics

I ran FurMark for 20 min total after my GPU temperature stabilized at 78 degrees Celsius. There were no artifacts that occurred during the test.

I got artifacts again just recently. Could it be related to FurMark test?

I did some researching on possible driver issues(which I should have done in the first place) and it seems that quite a bit of people are having issues with GTX 560 ti and the 296.10 WHQL driver I had installed. So I'm going to try BETA(301.24) drivers first, then if problems still occur I will go back to 295.73. I'll post back with results when I get them.

After two weeks changing to BETA drivers there have been no artifacts whatsoever. I was lucky and after artifacts occurred it fixed itself and a notification appeared that said Nvidia drivers had recovered so it was safe to assume the 296.10 was the issue. I saw that driver 301.28 is out I believe so I will use those since they are the latest. If issues start when I switch drivers I'll just go back to 301.24. Thanks for the help usasma with finding the issue with BSOD from before and helping with the my driver issues. Good luck helping other people with their computer issues.
