Windows 7: BSOD Only while playing games

BSOD Only while playing games


Let me straightly get into the point here. I have been getting random BSODs only during gaming and that too with the error code 1000007e for most of the time. The BSODs are usually caused by dxgkrnl.sys or nvlddmkm.sys or dxgmm1.sys or ntoskrnl.sys.

Yesterday i was playing Battlefield 4 for 2 hours without any crashes. I didn't got BSODs. Then after beating the game, i have decided to play GTA 4 and installed it. (I haven't installed any patch though). Alongside i downloaded SIMS 4 from Origin and was playing it. Nothing happened. And today, when i launched GTA 4, i got BSOD within 5 minutes. I thought it was just GTA 4's problem and thus i have decided to test it with Sims 4 and i got the same BSOD within 30 minutes. I knew something was wrong here. I just don't get it. Yesterday my PC was fine and after installing GTA 4, BOOM! BLUE SCREEN! Out of nowhere.

I know it's definitely not a hardware problem. They don't die out suddenly. And weird that i got this BSOD only after installing these two games. I thought ORIGIN and SIMS 4 was the culprit here. So i uninstalled it and the problem still remains. I haven't uninstalled GTA 4 though.

Things i tried:
-Tried different versions of nvidia drivers by using clean installation in safe mode. I uses driver sweeper for this.
-Ran driver verifier and flushed out that '000.fcl' was causing BSOD on startup and thus i have uninstalled cyberlink Power DVD. But the problem still remains
-Check my HDD for bad sectors. No errors were found.
-Stress tested my GPU for 30 minutes without any crashes or BSODs
-Monitered the temps for the GPU and it never went above 74C.(It's normal for a Geforce GT 610)
-Underclocked my GPU using afterburner to the least possible, but the BSODs still remain
-Changed SATA cable and SATA port
-Reset the BIOS by clearing the CMOS jumper.

Here is the latest dump file. Can anyone pointout the cause here as i seriously don't think it's hardware related and the problems crept up only after i started playing GTA 4.

PS: I don't get BSODs when browsing or watching movies or Rendering. I use Adobe Premiere PRO CS6 for rendering and i got no crashes when i was rendering multiple 1080p videos.
