Windows 7: BSOD playing any game, randomly, error 0x0000007E

BSOD playing any game, randomly, error 0x0000007E

As said suggested in the title, I've been getting BSOD constantly the past few days playing many games (even Terraria) at seemingly random times or just immediately after launching a game. Tried switching drivers but that did nothing, reset the CMOS on my mobo, still getting BSOD. I'm not quite sure what to do but any help would be greatly appreciated and I have the details of my last BSOD in the file attached. (Edit: I also get BSOD from time to time viewing Twitch)

Hi Cheezebell.

Dont use a BETA display driver.

Uninstall the installed display driver using DDU. Then install the CCC 14.4 WHQL only.

When done, Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark
Take a screenshot of the furmark window before closing it. Upload the screenshot for us. Also let us know if you have experienced any crash/BSOD and/or artifacts during the test.

Thank you for the help! I'm getting right on to uninstall the beta drivers and re-install the proper drivers to run that stress test!

Okay I'm back after running furmark for over an hour lol (I was gaming on my Wii U so I decided to just keep running it for a while) and I'll attach the screenshot I took of the data. It seemed like it was doing alright throughout the test or so I think.

I only had a bit of time as I had to leave for vacation but in my time after the Furmark test I was able to run Dark Souls II just fine, but one single time I got a crash, though I was just on Chrome browsing reddit for a couple minutes. I think that it worked though, thank you so much for lending me a hand here lol, I wasn't sure if it was the drivers causing issues but I think that resolved the issue.
