    BSODs mostly after opening & playing games

    Everything was all good before 4-5 days ago. I changed the broken keyboard and it went bad. (Before replacement keyboard, my friend punched my bag that I was carrying by thinking there is nothing in it but there was my laptop Some plastic fragments came out from screw places, etc.) I got different BSODs randomly, especially when opening & playing games. I have blank screen or getting awry displays if something goes wrong.

    Here are the last 4 dumps.

    Always :)

    Please uninstall everything of Nvidia using Display Driver Uninstaller and install new drivers from Acer. Be sure the clean install box is checked and only install the Graphics driver and the PhysX driver, you can use this tutorial for the installation part NVIDIA Drivers - Avoid Problems - Windows 7 Help Forums

    That's the problem. Acer 5755G drivers are ancient.

    I removed newest drivers by using DDU.

    I downloaded v368.81 which is 3rd driver in the list and haven't got any BSODs yet but displays in Mass Effect 2 gets frozen for split second and some conversation sounds lost because of it.

    It could be about graphics card. Even the 3rd most up-to-date driver doesn't work anymore. Games can't reach to NVIDIA graphic card and it gives warning about "NVIDIA Kernel Mode" Then, computer gets frozen and exclamation mark appears on "NVIDIA GeForce 540" in device manager.

    One & only thing that GeForce 540 can open is a game: Mass Effect 2. Other than that, it doesn't work with anything.

    Acer drivers may be ancient for Windows 10 because there is no support anymore after Windows 8, it is very possible that the drivers aren't proper for your GPU.

    I always use NVIDIA drivers, not manufacturer's drivers.

    My GeForce is dead. That's the explanation. Sometimes, it doesn't even start at startup.
