BSOD happening randomly

I posted here before about having an issue with BSOD when playing black ops 2 and I followed what someone told me to do updating drivers testing my gpu with furmark etc and it seemed to stop the blue screens but recently (in the last week or so) have started again but now they are while I am doing anything not just gaming so if someone could help that would be great.

You have already done what we would suggest. The dumps do show something going on with the video drivers.

I think you should test another GFX card on your system and test your GFX on another system.

Also test your Hard Drive and RAM:

HDD:
Upload a screenshot of your hard disk using CrystalDiskInfo:Make a hard drive test from the hard drive manufacturers website:
RAM:
Take memtest. Run for 8 passes and test each stick in a know good slot for an additional 6 passes.
Note   Note
Pay close attention to part 3 of the tutorial in order to rule out the faulty stick.

information   Information
Errors are sometimes found after 8 passes.

Tip   Tip
Do this test overnight, before going to bed.

If Memtest86+ does not find any errors with ram run Windows Memory Diagnostics for 7-8 passes following its tutorial:

You have to boot to it like when you start your computer.
