Before my driver started crashing, every program can run without problems. But now I can't play any games without getting display driver crashes.

I have tried Updating the bios, installing/uninstalling video drivers, removing overclock but nothing works.

I will not do a clean install because I know its not virus related and I scanned my computer many times with different tools

Have you tried rolling back drivers and simple windows restore? ( I'm not sure if uninstalling is the same as rollback)

Windows re-updates drivers on purpose apparently it might be installing new drivers, that happen to not work for you, as a rule.

This would indicate to me a possible issue with a newer version of the drivers. Try rolling back to an older version and see if the problem persists.

You can scan your PC everyday with every available tool, it still won't guarantee you will be virus freem. However, this doesn't sound virus related.

Interesting. Have you checked your temperatures and PSU voltages?
How old is the PC?
It is a factory built machine (i.e. Dell, HP, Acer etc) or a custom / self build?
Have you ever updated / upgraded any hardware since you bought it?

The driver failure could be due to a failing PSU or a failing GPU, not guaranteed to be one of those but they are possibilities. Download and install HWMonitor, it will give you an idea of the temps and voltages (assuming the machine has the necessary sensors). Get two screenshots and post them here, one with the system at idle (just sat at the desktop) then, with HWMonitor running in the background, run a game for about 5 mins and screenshot it again, post both in a reply.

The PSU voltages and temps are in the HWM files posted.
The PC is 6 months old
Its a costum build
I haven't updated/upgraded any harware

The HWM files are in the attachments. NOGAME is the idle one and GAME is the played one. I cant post a screenshot because it wont fit

your +12vdc is a little on the low side. Can you post the Manufacturer, and model of your power supply including Wattage, and Amerage on the +12Vdc rail? This information should be on the sticker on the Power Supply.
