Windows 7: BSOD when playing games, BCCode 117 Video Hardware Error

BSOD when playing games, BCCode 117 Video Hardware Error

Hi all, my pc has been having frequent freezes shortly after I start a game( Elder Scrolls Online, Sims 4, Civilization VI etc) My pc will first freeze then start to emit static noises before the screen turns black.
I then have to turn off my pc power supply and replug the hdmi cable connecting my monitor to my pc otherwise even if I restart my pc, the monitor doesnt turn back on.

When I then turn back on my pc, windows tells me that my pc suffered a video hardware error crash. This has been going on since 2 months ago and I have tried almost everything: cleaning the dust inside my pc, doing a clean install of nvidia drivers, using past stable nvidia drivers. They all only delayed the problem for slightly more or less than a week before my pc got the freeze crash again.

Any help would be greatly appreciated:):):)

Attached the dumpfile created using dm log collector. Dump files are limited as my pc only just started generating them one to two weeks ago no idea why it didnt start generating dump files when it first started 2 months ago.
