Been just over 24 hours & another blue screen appeared. I was watching video & sound made funny noise this time DPC Watchdog appeared then it sat there & didn't reboot right away I had to manually reboot PC.
Here is the new .dmp file is it still same?

Hoping this gets you going even though the driver is 2010. I'm starting to run out of ideas...LOL!
Ok, I installed this file & all i saw is Storage Controller option & looks like it may not wok as it didn't ask me to reboot or anything. I did not see it in the control panel in Program and Features as you can uninstall it. I manually copied the nvstor64.sys from that file & renamed the one to .old & rebooted & so far reboot with no blue screen. I put pictures below the date of the nForce is 2013 newer than this file but it's the nvstor.sys. I hope this works now but I see again tomorrow if it comes back. Maybe there is a way to disable DPC Watchdog or have it ignore this part?

Last thing I will do if this crashes again happens I post the dump & tell me if its nvstor64.sys. It's been using nvstor.sys when I posted that last dump. I am going to try again & rename the nvstor64.sys files to .old &.bak since I have 2 different versions & as I see in device manager nothing uses that file. If it boots normally then that file is no longer used & see maybe wont happen. Does windows check on files & drivers daily? My new clean install was fine & it didn't even use nvstor64.sys & used latest drivers for video card & same version of the nvstor.sys as I am using now & ran it no issues so has to be this file. Again thanks Chis
After messing around a bit more I took that nvstor64.sys file out of the drivers directory & moved it to a backup drive & Windows booted up with no issues so now I know that file is a cause. I also did a regedit search for nvstor.64.sys & found some entries referring to oem2.inf with that file. I will post that below as it looks like it was from when I had Windows 7 before as I upgraded over a year ago from Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit retail edition. I right clicked that inf file & installed more drivers & that old nvstor64.sys from same date & it's not digitally signed by NVIDIA or Microsoft like this one now I am using nvstor.sys & digitally signed by Microsoft. For now I did a System Restore back to this way but if it crashes again let me know what error I may have to find a way to uninstall old NVIDIA storage drivers & registry entries from this. I know for sure when I first installed Windows 7 It installed drivers from the DVD. So the old Windows 7 drivers are there but should work as it's not. I checked the new install & nothing there in registry for that file.
You can use a piece of software called "WhoCrashed". Use the free version. Once your system crashes, reboot, start up this software then hit analyze, when its done it will show you results of what caused your crash.
