Windows 7: BSOD on wow launch

I'm wondering if it's a setting in your GPU software or in fact the GPU driver. It may even be a graphics setting in WoW its self.

You could also try stress testing the GPU. FurMark > Home

If the GPU crashes then I would suspect it's a bad card or the PSU is at fault. There is another program to test a GPU's memory. 5 Ways to Check the Memory of Your Video Card For Errors • Raymond.CC

Unfortunately the latest dump didn't contain any info, so we have to wait for another crash.

Just now I went to get more dumps, as thus far the bsod happened consistently right when I tried to run wow.exe and I was met with a windows error window. The info listed therein is as follows:
Problem signature:

I don't know if this helps at all

Well now windows doesn't seem to be creating new dump files, I think everything is configured correctly and on the bsod it says that the dump is being written to the disk, I think it's configured correctly to do so but there's nothing being created. I'm installing windows updates maybe that will help?

The windows update fixed that problem, I've triggered the bsod a bunch more times and the dumps are here. Also, I tried stress testing my gpu as was suggested and everything went fine, I'll test my gpu memory tonight but I don't think it's at fault as I've had literally no issue doing anything besides attempting to launch wow; as for graphics drivers the crashing happened exactly the same with outdated nvidia drivers (at first), then with the up to date drivers, then again with the same up to date drivers on the fresh install.

To summarize: I can trigger this pretty much at will as I just have to run wow.exe for the bsod to happen immediately; running driver verifier doesn't seem to cause bsod (unless I run wow.exe), I tested my memory and found no faults. I hadn't experienced a bsod beforehand on this machine for a period of more than one year, and every bsod I've experienced thus far (barring one caused by driver verifier on the old windows install) has been immediately upon attempting to run wow.exe.

Could you provide a kernel dump of an ATTEMPTED_EXECUTE_OF_NOEXECUTE_MEMORY crash, it looks like the minidumps do not contain enough info.
The kernel dump, C:\Windows\MEMORY.dmp, should be uploaded to onedrive, google drive, dropbox or a similar 3rd party service and post a link in your next post please.
