Windows 7: BSOD when switching back to computer with KVM switch, error 0x00000116

BSOD when switching back to computer with KVM switch, error 0x00000116

I have a KVM switch that I use to plug in different machines and work on them, and recently when I switch back to my main machine, sometimes I get a BSOD. It seems to me like there is something wrong with my video driver, since right before the BSOD, the video driver crashes over and over, but I don't want to start messing around with things until someone more experienced than me can offer some advice.

I used the DM Log Collector, and have attached the zip to my post.

Hopefully, someone with more knowledge about this topic can help me out.

Have you tried updating your gfx drivers, that would be the logical first step
