Solution
If you have clean installed, and attempted the clean driver installation process, which you indicated you had, then it must be hardware related.

Eliminate everything else before convicting the GPU.

Run Memtest86 for 7 passes on each memory module individually. If you have one module, run one series of 7 passes. If you have two run a series of 7 passes with each module installed by itself to determine which, if any, module has issues. This will take a while, so be patient and let it run. A FULL seven passes. You can set the number of passes in the options when beginning the test.

Run Seatools for windows on each connected hard drive. Brand does not matter. Run the short DST and the long generic...
I would remove all the current drivers using the Display driver uninstaller application. Run the DDU and choose the Nvidia option. When it asks to reboot into safe mode select ok. After the removal install the latest drivers for your 675m GPU.

ive done that already!! im starting to give up

 
Did you do it using the Display driver uninstaller, or did you just uninstall it as you would normally uninstall? It is not the same at all. The DDU removes ALL old GPU drivers AND registry entries as well as broken or partial installations. Using the programs and features method or the applications own uninstaller only removes a predetermined grouping of files and settings.

I used the DDU in safe mode.

[quotemsg=15076338,0,1696453]I would recommend backing up your important documents and files and performing a clean install or refresh of the OS.[/quotemsg]


LOL ive done that 6 times. im starting to think its hardware.

Check to see that you don't have any old or damaged partitions that might be corrupted using disk manager. When you did the installations, did you choose the CUSTOM windows installation method and delete ALL the partitions on the drive until there was ONLY unallocated space left on the drive and then install to the unallocated space allowing Windows to create the correct partitions itself?

I've had this same problem for easily over two years or so and it only seemed to stop indefinitely when I dusted out the vents with a can of compressed air, bought a Cooler Master Notepal X3, and started blowing a fan into the PC. When I don't play games I disable the NVIDIA GPU.

It might be a coincidence, but keeping that temperature down seemed to help.
