Hi,
no dump file included:

Are you definitely sure it was a bsod? If it was make sure your pagefile is at least 200mb. This post in the sysnative forums shows what has to ne enabled for a dump file to be created:

Have you removed the Pagefile? Or reduced it to below 200mb?

Open the run box and type services .msc and click ok. Look down the list in the revealed box for Windows error reporting service and make sure it's set to manual.

Open an admin command prompt, type:
sfc /scannow
Press enter and await results.

It's already on manual.
And the sfc/scannow is verification 100% completed, Windows resouce protection did not find any integrity violations.

Sometimes no dump file can mean that there is an issue with the hard drive. Now I'm not saying for a second this is the case here but it might be prudent to perform a chkdsk?

Whichever method you choose please ensure you look for and repair broken sectors.

Another thing you could try if you haven't already is re-seating the GPU and just making sure the connections are tight. TDR errors can be notoriously difficult to track down and having no dump file means it's even harder I guess. Have you actually checked the mindump folder yourself to see if it contains any dump files?

Hmm and you sure your settings are set like this:
Open the run application.
Type sysdm.cpl in the run box and click ok.
Look across the top of the system properties box for 'Advanced' and click that.
Look for 'Startup and Recovery' near the bottom and click 'settings'.
Near the bottom you'll see a drop down menu under the heading 'write debugging information'.
In the drop down menu choose ' small memory dump (256KB)'
Under 'small dump directory' make sure it says %SystemRoot%\Minidump.
Click ok and your good to go.

Check your pagefile and make sure the top checkbox is ticked so it's automatically sorted.
