Windows 7: Random Crashing while playing games, doesnt crash otherwise. Win 7

Random Crashing while playing games, doesnt crash otherwise. Win 7

Hello, ive had my computer for about 3 years now, ive never had this random crashing problem ever. ive had some problems dealing with unplugged cords but other than that nothing. All of the sudden last week it started crashing randomly while i was playing games. It stopped for about 2 days and now it's doing it again. It makes every game unplayable due to random crash/restarts after a random time in the game. If anyone can help me i would very much appreciate it because i can not do anything other than browse and stuff on my computer

Here's my system info as of today

Those are the 3 events leading up to the random crash while i was gaming. I was thinking it might be the new Nvidia driver i installed? but im not sure. any help would be greatly appreciated
