A stray crash dump is not enough. Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

The GPU is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M.

And unfortunately I dont know any driver version that works good with GTX 700 series. You may try the drivers on a trial and error basis:
  • 320.49 WHQL
  • 327.23 WHQL
  • 331.58 WHWL
  • 331.65 WHQL
  • 331.82 WHQL
  • 332.21 WHQL
  • Any other driver released later
Get them from Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers

Do a clean install on all of them. Uninstall the previously installed driver first.
Uninstall All nvidia items in Control Panel > Programs and features
    • 3D Vision Control Driver
    • 3D Vision Driver
    • Graphics Driver
    • HD Audio Driver
    • PhysX
    • nvidia Update
    (Are you using nvidia chipset drivers? If so, dont uninstall anything other than those are listed).
  • Now follow Drivers - Clean Left over Files after Uninstalling
  • Download the target WHQL. While installing, Select Custom (Advanced) install. In the next page, follow this settings:

Lengthy process, but the only stable version of nvidia is 314.22 lately, which does not support 700 series GPU.

One of them may work good for you, hopefully.
