Crashing with errors: IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL and Nvlddmkm.sys

  1. Good day,
    First of all I am not realy into computers so I am quite ignorant when it comes to this subject, also I don't know if this is the proper section to post this.
    With that said the problem:

    1 month ago I started to play Counter Strike GO as usual, however the moment I get on the menu the screen gets these blue and purple squares and crashes.

    This was the blue screen I receaved:

    (Pic from google.)

    Then the computer proceeded to restart and I started the game again to try to understand what would happen. Needless the say it crashed again.

    I open Nvidia manager (or whatever is called) and on the 3D management when render the 3D the window stops responding. This is how the 3D render looks seconds before crashing:

    And this mensage poped over and over again:

    "Nvidia windows kernel mode driver xxx stopped responding and was recovered successfully"

    I tried to update the drives and no results.
    Then I search around and I noticed that I am not alone, and some said to use Display Driver Uninstaller and so I did, I erased everything Nvidia related.
    And funny enough the error was gone even tho the performance took a big hit.

    But for some reason Windows installed Nvidia stuff again and so the problem was back.
    At some point I decided to format the pc and nothing the error and that Kernel mode deal is still here.

    I also made a GPU-Z test to see some info I got from the crash:

    I quit, I just don't know what to do besides getting it to a proper shop.
    Also my friend told me that this could be related to the fan being full of trash but like I said I am not comfortable opening the PC but if that might be the problem I have no other choice.

    Heres the SPECCY Link.

    Processor: Intel Core I5 3210M CPU 2.50GHZ
    Ram: 6.00 GM (5.86 GB usable) <- I don't get that usable part
    64 bit in 64x
    Windows 8.1
    Nvidia Geforce 635M (2gb) and Intel Core HD Graphics

    The screen is not original.

    If more info is needed I get it.
    Thanks for reading.
