What driver are you currently using with your card? There is a chance it could be driver related.

Hmm odd. That is the most up to date version. Have you thought about uninstalling and reinstalling or quite possibly trying out the beta drivers?

There are many reasons why your system may crash due to these stop errors. The most common scenarios are: Faulty drivers, Hardware issue (especially RAM) or Anti-virus software problem.

You may want to try the following and check if it helps.
Method 1:
Run Memory Diagnostics test to check for any memory problems. Refer the following link for the same.
How do I know if my computer has a memory problem?

Method 2:
Update the chipset, video card, display and network adapter drivers to the latest by visiting the computer manufacturer’s website.
Update a driver for hardware that isn't working properly
Update drivers: recommended links

Method 3:
Since the issue doesn’t occur in safe mode, you can also perform a clean boot and see if it helps.
A clean boot helps to verify if any third party application services or startup item is causing this issue.
You may refer the following KB article to put the computer in clean boot:
How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7
After the trouble shooting steps please refer to clean boot link to put the computer back to normal start up mode.

Hope this information is helpful.

The above was from Microsoft forums.

Also if i may add .sys and 0xA00000001 are usually related to driver corruption, I experienced those at one point and by reinstalling drivers(make sure to uninstall, then clean out fragments with ccleaner/driversweeper, THEN reinstall, or fragments from the old drivers will corrupt the new ones) and the problem was fixed.

^ a good way to start. However I think your post didn't have the memory test diagnostic tool. Memtest x86 is more then likely what you were going to recommend here is the link.
