Windows 7: Display driver weird bsod

Display driver weird bsod

The the issue i am having is with nvdias newest drivers i will randomly get the error (The display driver has stoped responding and has recovered). I posted on here earlier and was given a solution that i tried, it seemed to work, I got no errors for or bsods for approxmatly 6 hours, and occasionally it will go to blue screen with an error code of 116. It worked fine with the origonal microsoft ones that came installed with seven. I have done a fresh install of seven, I tried uninstalling the old drivers before installing new ones, although im not entirely sure if some remnant of the origonal driver could be causeing this. The video card is a geforce 8400 gs, it is a 32 bit windows. Heres the minidump file from the last time i got the bsod.

BSOD is way more likey with newest nvidia drives to give a bsod other wise screen just flickers off and then usually comes back in a few seconds to a min.

Slight apolagy for creating 2 threads about the same issue, but the first time I posted the output of the minidump file in the fourm it self so i took the time to do it properly once the issue came back.
