Sorry for the late reply,but I sent my computer to a PC repair store for 3 days to fix the problem.They had the PC for 3 days,and said that there were no problems,or BSODs when they checked.So I got my PC today and I tried to play Dota,I was able to play 3 matches straight,and then just as I enter the next match,another BSOD.So I re seated the GPU as you said and when I booted up my PC CHKDSK ran(It ran automatically just after I re seated the GPU) and found no errors.I don't think I can change the GPU slot as it doesn't fit to the other 2 slots.But I've re seated it and I'll see if any moer BSODs occur.

EDIT:Also I'd like to add that,once I got the BSOD and the computer restarts,i keep on getting more and more,and it won't stop unless I leave it shut down for a few hours.So now I'm getting more frequent BSODs.

All of the latest dumps are indicating hardware problems and/or blaming your nVidia drivers so it has to be the card. Have you had any BSODs since reseating it?

Yes,I've had BSODs,and it's more frequent,one after another.I've never had a problem with the nvidia driver before,and since I'm having too many BSODs,and barely being able to use the computer,I was thinking of reformatting windows.Do you think that should solve it?

It may do, it may not. What I'd suggest if you do go that route is removing the card prior to the clean install and run the system without it in first to see if everything is stable, then when you're happy all's good install the card and test. If you want to upload any new logs feel free and I'll take a look at them later for you.

Before I reformat my computer I just wanted to do some more tests,so I uninstalled nVidia to see if I get any BSODs,which I did,about after 5 matches in Dota today,and I ran Driver Verifier and got a BSOD,so I was hoping you could look into the recent logs.These are all dump files created today,and the most recent one is when I was running driver verifier.Also I will run memtest86+ tonight to see if anything might be wrong with my RAM.

Go ahead and run MemTest86+, it certainly won't hurt but I don't think your RAM is the issue.

Looking at the DV enable BSOD it gives the following readout:

*                                                                             *

*                                                                             *

An illegal DMA operation was attempted by a driver being verified.

Do you have onboard graphics you can use? If so, can you uninstall the nVidia GPU and physically remove it from your PC and test the system. I'm of the opinion that it may be your PCI-e slot on your motherboard that's causing the issue.

I ran memtest and got 11 passes with no errors.If I remove my GPU,where would I connect my monitor cable?Sorry but I'm not really good at computing.
Although you said something might be wrong with the GPU,I thought it was something related to a driver/software that I might have installed before the BSOD started to occur.So I downloaded CCleaner today,not something that I like to use because it might permanently delete important registry files,but since I'm already having the thought of reformatting my PC I thought I'd give it a go.
So I ran CCleaner,and scanned for registry issues,just as I clicked scan a lot of them were directed at nVidia PhysX software,so I cleaned all registry issues,I was not sure it was gonna solve my problem.I started Dota right after,and I was able to play it the whole day without any BSODs.
