When i power up my laptop for the first time of the day a BSOD appears, when the pc restarts i can use my pc just fine for less then 5 minutes because my gpu just turnes off if nothing is using it and i have to restart but if i am using it for example open games its just fine but if i close the game gpu turns off as soon as i close the game. i update the gpu drivers regularly and when i update it, it becomes normal for like a day then problems come back.

gpu:gtx 1060 6gb, it's 3 years old. The problem started appearing less than a month ago.

Things I tried: deleting the driver with ddu then reinstalling it

Reinstalling the driver via geforce experience

Sounds like driver issue: nvlddmkm is the driver file, you mentioned drivers are updated frequently, and the problem starts a month ago.

Try DDU in safe mode, then install a driver from before the problem started.
