BSOD whilst installing new GPU driver, unsure if that was the cause

Hey guys,

I was installing a new graphics card driver (whilst doing other things like browsing the web and working on a word document) and the computer bsoded whilst installing the driver. I have previously had BSODs before such as BAD_POOL_HEADER and NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM. I would like to ask if anyone would know how to resolve this issue.

attached are the log files of previous and current bsods (current one titled 102813-97921-01)

Thankyou in advance.
