Windows 7: BSOD when playing Darksiders - IRQL not less or equal.

BSOD when playing Darksiders - IRQL not less or equal.

Have been having issues when playing certain games like Darksiders that after a while I will get a BSOD saying IRQL not less or equal. After checking and updating all my drivers I then ran verifier and received a BSOD on startup and the details were long but in short it said something along the lines of ***STOP: 0x000000C4 *** nvlddmkm.sys.

As I believe this is indicative of a graphics card driver issue I have tried updating my driver for my gtx 670 (its a KFA 2 GTX 670 EX OC 2048mb GDDR5) but am still having issues. Is there something I am missing here or need to try?

Update: Have run memtest - 8 passes no errors.

Also have checked GPU with OCCT v 3.1.0, memcheck was fine and ran the hour long test with no errors.
