You said the PC hangs and restarts with a bluescreen? The title of your post says you are getting a display driver stopped working error. Are you getting this error before the bluescreen?

Do you have the latest drivers for your GPU? Also what are your temps like?

Ok, your temps look fine. Sometimes the driver stopped responding error will happen when the GPU is overheating.

I would uninstall the graphics driver you are using and reboot.

Then download the latest driver and do a fresh install (of the driver)

Post back once you have tried that
