Random BSOD while playing games and idling, monitor display shuts off.

Here lately on my PC I've been getting random BSOD and the monitor display with turn off and back on randomly a few times with one of them showing no signal then it will revert to being back on, all of my temps on my PC are pretty cool when this happens and I cannot figure out what is going on, any tips?

-Attached a report to this thread as well containing a system scan.

-Edit: Another BSOD a few minuted after posting this, here is the report from it.

-Edit: Booted up a game just now and while in the middle of playing the game and audio randomly freezes multiple times and on the task manager my CPU usage would spike to 100% 2 times then anywhere from 70-90% about 5 times then it would settle back down to normal levels around 10%.

Sorry for the late reply been a little busy. I updated to version 352.86 WHQL and I was still getting the same errors. I turned down the graphic settings in the games I play and now it does not do it anymore. I'm guessing the card is going bad or dying?

It's possible that the computer is overheating while the graphics are at a high settings. If you have a program that checks the temperatures, then i would suggest checking it at high loads. I am not sure what programs they suggest around these boards for checking temperature though. If it is getting hot, then maybe clean out the dust in your case. If not, it could be that the GPU is having problems.

Checked the GPU temps and it's getting 60c+ when running a game and i've cleaned out my PC and removed the GPU and cleaned it out thoroughly. Everything in my case is running cool between 30c-36c while the GPU gets hot.

60+ should be fine, as long as it doesnt hit high 80s/low 90s.

If that's the case then I'm just gonna settle with getting a new card, thing is really old in the first place.

Maybe test with a friend's card first, because that still might not be a problem.

I'm no expert. I just work at a computer store :P

You posted about your GPU temps, but an elaboration is needed. Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

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.
