A device driver attempting to corrupt the system has been caught.  This is
because the driver was specified in the registry as being suspect (by the
administrator) and the kernel has enabled substantial checking of this driver.
If the driver attempts to corrupt the system, bugchecks 0xC4, 0xC1 and 0xA will
be among the most commonly seen crashes.
Arg1: 0000000000000091, A driver switched stacks using a method that is not supported by
	the operating system. The only supported way to extend a kernel
	mode stack is by using KeExpandKernelStackAndCallout.

Crashes seem to be happening on your Nvidia Drivers.
Are you overclocking any hardware?
Try going back to a last known stable NVIDIA driver version.

Perform these tests:
Video Card - Stress Test with FurmarkMonitor your temps with Speccy during these testsDoes you motherboard have onboard VGA? Does it crash there as well?

Hey, thank you for your help koolkat77.

I thought that this issue might be related to a bad nvidia driver or a faulty GPU since these green dots appear every time before a BSOD. My GPU is the MSI 560 Ti OC version so don't know if that's the problem. I did try a stress test for 10 minutes and the temps seems to be somewhere around 79-81.

As for the onboard VGA, yes, it does have an onboard VGA, but it never crashed not even once, so don't really know what's causing this. I however did reinstall a new nvidia driver and hopefully this will fix the problem and if it didn't, then maybe it's time to get a new GPU.

To be sure the GPU is at fault itself,
  1. Test it on another computer.
  2. Test another monitor.
  3. Test another GPU on your computer.
  4. Make sure the fans/power supply is working properly/not failing.
Good luck.
