Debugging Details:

*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for nvlddmkm.sys
your dump files point to the Nvidia graphics driver as the culprit. Almost anything can cause a TDR and if you haven't updated the gpu driver recently then try that.
If you already updated the gpu driver recently then try rolling back to the previous version.

Something else which won't be helping is your version of Windows 7.

Windows 7 Kernel Version 7600 MP (4 procs) Free x64

Tells me your running Windows 7 without SP1 installed, a major, major update.

Is there a particular reason for this or simply that you haven't updated?
I installed a clean version of windows in hope that it solves the problem
SP1 does not want to get installed the easy way through windows update and I have not looked for a way around that yet, I am not even sure the laptop will stay on long enough for it to get installed

I tried updating the video card driver to fix this issue but no luck same result

Anything else I could try?
Try opening an admn command prompt (right click on command prompt, choose properties, run as admin) then type:

sfc /scannow

Press enter and wait for the scan to finish.
The above will help with any corruption you might have.

Try uninstalling your gpu driver using the Display driver uninstaller or DDU:
Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU) V18.0.0.6 Released. *updated* - Wagnardsoft Forum

You need to boot into safe mode to use the DDU properly.

Also try using the latest gpu driver found on your laptops support page (google it).
