Windows 7: BSOD at random, but much frequent whilst streaming videos

BSOD at random, but much frequent whilst streaming videos

This problem started about a month ago, where I'll be using the computer and I would get a black screen along with a non-responsive computer. The computer would still be turned on as the fans and lights are still on.

It has occured much more frequently within the past 2 weeks, and sometimes along with a sharp buzzing noise from the speakers. I have used system mechanic to try and repair any problems, looked at event viewer ( to many errors), updated to newest NVIDIA drivers, scanned my system for malware, all to no avail as this problem is still here.

Any help in solving this would be much appreciated, and I don't have very good knowledge in computers, so please be patient with me lol.

Don't use any of this sorts of applications to try and repair errors - these often cause more probems than they solve.

This error is graphics-related. Open the computer case, and check that the card (and generally the PC) is clean and free of dust and dirt - check the fan on the video card especially.

Reinstall the video driver again, but follow this guide precisely:
