    looks like the problem was caused by the nvidia display driver or the gpu itself. try upgrading the video drivers.
  2. i did upgrade the drivers before the blue screen because of a different problem i was having with the nvidia control panel (something to do with a version mismatch), it seemed to only make it worse (blue screen happened). i decided to do a fresh clean install and that fixed it.

    thanks for explaining what caused the blue screen
    it pretty much confirmed what was going on.
