Windows 7: Random crash/BSOD 4/5 times a day, no obvious reason why

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP 1
Random crash/BSOD 4/5 times a day, no obvious reason why

Hi All

I have recently just built a new PC. All of the components excluding the graphics card are brand new (graphics card is out of an older PC but still not ancient).

About two weeks after the build the PC randomly started to crash, it's been doing this for about 4 days now. It seems to happen in the same way each time, the primary monitor freezes then goes black and then the secondary does the same. I was on teamspeak the other night when it happened and noticed that the voice continued to work despite the PC hanging.

About 50% of the time it actually BSODs and restarts itself, the other 50% requires a hard power cycle.

I don't do that much really just play Eve online (with multiple instances of the same client, but this is normal activity for the game. i also did this on my old PC without issue), browse the internet and use Teamspeak as a voice application.

Im really hoping someone can help. Im "OK" with PC's but this one is definitely beyond my level of understanding.

The requested output is attached.

Many thanks

All of the dumps are blaming your nvidia graphics drivers

Probably caused by : nvlddmkm.sys ( nvlddmkm+19e4d4 )
Driver Reference Table - nvlddmkm.sys

I would suggest unistalling the current driver then reinstalling the latest one from nvidia's site.
