Windows 7: BSOD playing any demanding(and non demanding) game, error oxooooo116

BSOD playing any demanding(and non demanding) game, error oxooooo116

Basically, im out of options. if this doesnt work, im going to have to send in my computer and get it fixed manually i suppose. In anycase, i currently own an Alienware M17x R4 with a NVIDIA GTX 675M graphics card and i have owned it for a year and a quarter now. Basically, whenever i try to run games like Battlefield 3, DOTA 2, or even Minecraft, eventually (usually within 15 minutes of starting that game) i will get the BSOD with the error code 0x00000116 which i tracked to a video driver failure? i dont know how to check this, and i have done just about everything there is to be done( system restore, factory reset, virus debugging, temp checking) and none of it seems to work. the kicker is that this just started 3 days ago. Before then, i was able to run many games at Ultra settings (BF3, Metro 2033, Batman AC) and i could play for hours on end. now my comp will bsod and then freeze multiple times after unless i leave my comp off for at least an hour or more. I've checked forums, written emails, and this is all i can do. I dont have a warranty anymore, so anything that may help me would be much appreciated! -Ruffles821
