    When was the last time you checked for updated Nvidia drivers? You definitely don't have the latest iteration. Also, the idea of a failing motherboard causing such an issue seems far-fetched to me.

    Okay, let's look at the drivers. Go here and download the Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU). Do not run it straight away. Go to the GeForce site and ensure you have a copy of the latest drivers package downloaded. I would also recommend downloading the previous version of the driver package.

    Once all that's done, boot in Safe Mode and run DDU to remove all the drivers. After that, reboot the PC in Normal Mode and then install the latest drivers you downloaded. Take the PC for a "test drive" and see if you're still getting the same kernel error. If so, repeat the sequence for running DDU and this time, install the previous version of the drivers to test for stability.
