Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
PC crashing every 5 minutes

As the topic says my PC is crashing every 5 minutes. This just started happening yesterday and I haven't installed anything significant on my PC.

Attached is my dump report.

Thank you in advance for any help.

The BSOD is caused due to nvidia card. When you executed the DM log collectro, the computer was unable to detect it.

Open the computer, Seat the card properly. Then uninstall the installed display driver using Display driver uninstaller.

Now install 340.52 WHQL.

Follow NVIDIA Drivers - Avoid Problems to have a trouble free driver installation.

When done, stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.

Re-seated the card. Removed the old drivers and installed 340.52. My desktop crashes after two minutes of the furmark stress test

That means the card is failing. Two possibilities are there.
  1. The system is too hot
  2. The card is failing itself
Remove the card. Run the computer with onboard graphics. Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

It will help us to arrive at the right decision.
