Windows 7: BSOD when booting up any game!

BSOD when booting up any game!

Hey guys,

My laptop runs fine until I try to boot up any game. This makes me believe that the problem lies with my gpu.

My gpu is nvidia geforce gt 540m. The main BSOD error says: Attempt to reset the display driver and recover timeout failed.

It happens every time!

If you need other specs of my PC or for me to post logs, please just tell me!

Thanks in advance!
