Windows 7: BSOD upon start up. Error with graphics driver 0x00000116 nvlddmkm.sys

BSOD upon start up. Error with graphics driver 0x00000116 nvlddmkm.sys

Hello there,
So I am having some major issues with my desktop computer. Whenever I start up the computer, it shows the normal windows loading icon with a black screen (but the image looks a little pixelated and you can tell something is wrong), then goes directly into the BSOD displaying an error of:

attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed STOP: 0x00000116

I am almost positive the nvlddmkm.sys driver is part of my Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 graphics card. After doing some research I found out that I could potentially update my graphics drivers and things would work. So I booted my computer is Safe Mode with Networking, went to the Nvidia website and downloaded my update. However when I attempted to install it, the Nvidia graphics driver update screen came up and did a System check and displayed this error message "Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable packages for Visual Studio cannot be installed in safe mode." The issue is I cannot boot in normal mode because the BSOD comes up instantly, but it seems as though I cannot update the driver from safe mode. I have been looking around all the forums at similar issues, but have not been able to come up with a solution. Any help would be greatly appreciated and let me know if you need any more information. Thanks!

Sorry I somehow previously missed the BSOD section of this forum. I marked this post as solved and made a new one over there. Any admin can delete this post as it is in the wrong location for the issue

What Happened: I was playing Dota 2 when I got a black screen, but I thought it was perhaps just a cable that came loose or something. But I checked and made sure my HDMI cable was secure, and they were. I waited a minute or so but still nothing changed. So I shut my computer down (holding the...
