BSOD Playing games or just browsing

Hello guys, I've been recently having bad problems with blue screen. What usually happens is i'm doing something or pretty much nothing at all then suddenly my monitor just turns of then also does my pc. Soon as i turn turn on i get the Blue screen error now and again.

Would very much love some one to go over my Diagnostic's, thanks.

Hello Callistio, welcome to SF

BSOD code 0x116 STOP 0x116: VIDEO_TDR_ERROR troubleshooting
You seem to have a problem relating to graphics setup, the current nvidia drivers you have installed are problematic they seem to have an issue with that particular release we have been seeing lots of these errors lately, try updating them to jan 2013 version or roll back to earlier version
Recommend you install some temperature monitoring software (something like speccy) to keep an eye on your graphic card temps as i wouldnt rule out a hardware problem with your card, if temps are high open up and clean/check fans

Thanks for the help, I've recently cleaned the Gfx card and to be honest that's cooled it down by an extra 8c just 3 above my friends(he has the same) However the problem still seems to still exist. I've also used the testing thing what was recommended on that page the gfx card on 99% load out went to 105c which is hot but never gets that high in any game any way and it never blue screened me nor did it crash under 99% load out.

I've also re installed Window7 and updated the gfx drivers to the latest how ever the problem still seem to happen.

Oh an thanks for speccys suggestion it's pretty neat, I've also uploaded the new dump file after Fresh install.

I notice that you are over clocking, for the time being please stop so that we can rule this out as a part of the problem.

Next thing I See is a driver for the Razer Lycosa keyboard the older versions of this can cause BSODs please update it as yours is rather old:

It can be updated Here

BSOD while playing various games or browsing
Hi there, I recently had a computer built for me by my dad for my birthday but I seem to be crashing every 5-30 minutes while trying to play games. Not sure what the problem is but I'm thinking it might be my HDD or my GPU as those are the only older parts that he used to build it. Thank you!
