Hi alehoop,

Try to remove all your videocard drivers and installing the newest one. See if that helps.
If that doesn't help, try to figure out if your videocard is getting to hot. It might be overheating causing the BSOD's.
You can do this by opening the case and holding your hand close to the videocard. Also installing a program to read system temps is an option.
Speedfan or Everest Free (Sensor part) are good options.

If this is not the problem, it is likely your video card is damaged. Try using a different video card and see if you have BSOD's.

Hope to help,
