Windows 7: BSOD playing Neverwinter Nights

BSOD playing Neverwinter Nights

I recently -apparently- got a BSOD while playing the old game Neverwinter Nights, however I couldn't tell that this was the case. My computer told me it was a BSOD, but I never got to see the actual blue screen - for all purposes it seemed my computer just randomly rebooted.

This concerns me however, and it did give me a minidump file (I included the files it said were important in a folder in the zip with all the other SF diagnostic tool files).

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

I play NWN2 online extensively and all I can say are the funnest to play but the worst for this sort of thing. Generally found I can't use the updated drivers, as soon as I got problems I rolled back drivers to like one year old or at least till I found the stable ones. Then everything is fine.

Windows 7 64 bit

Turns out the Nvidia 400 and 500 series of graphic cards have some pretty intense OpenGL issues with neverwinter nights. I found a workaround patch made by a member of the community that addresses the issue and stops the crashes (apparently the GPU will timeout and windows will BSOD over it). So, problem solved unless someone sees something else wrong with my computer I should address.

Neverwinter Nights 2 issues
Alright, so I've been trying out a few games on W7 now, and they've all worked great (FC2, Assassin's Creed, TF2), but now I've dusted off Neverwinter Nights 2. First of all the installation was a bit long I think, but I'm not sure if that has anything to do with W7. Then however when I tried to...
