Windows 7: BSOD upon computer boot up, error 0x116 and nvlddmkm.sys

BSOD upon computer boot up, error 0x116 and nvlddmkm.sys

I have an issue in which I cannot boot the computer back up into its normal state.
I am experiencing blue screens of death every time i boot the computer up, which shows the error
0x00000116 and nvlddmkm.sys. I do believe that it is a driver compatibility issue and that is because I recently updated the Nvidia driver fot my GTX 560, since then it was performing sluggish (had multiple driver has stopped responding crashes in-game) before the BSOD happened.
I have tried changing multiple driver versions by using the DDU driver uninstaller and then reinstalling the version I tried.
I am not sure what to do next and if anyone could help it would be appreciated.
Many thanks
