First thing's first - System Specs: Toshiba Qosmio x775-Q7380, Windows 7 Home Premium x64, Intel Core i5-2430M CPU @ 2.40GHz, nVidia GeForce GTX 560m driver.
Story time (I'll try to keep this brief): Over the past ~year or so, I have had multiple issues with my computer receiving BSODs (see my post history: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/index.php?app=core&module=search&do=user_activity&mid=806043). I thought a lot of my issues may have been due to my hardware not working well with Windows 8/8.1, so I factory reset my computer to Windows 7. After multiple issues with the reset, and seeking advice in the Windows 7 forum here, I was finally able to get my computer working correctly (for the most part). However, I could not run Heroes of the Storm, as another BSOD would appear whenever I opened it. I sought help on the Battle.Net forums (post is here: http://us.battle.net/heroes/en/forum/topic/18300626193), to which they suggested I upgrade my nVidia drivers. Every attempt at upgrading the past ~10 versions of nVidia drivers (from both the GeForce and Toshiba Support websites) resulted in BSODs. As I couldn't get any nVidia drivers to install, I just succumbed to uninstalling the nVidia driver completely using DDU. Under Display Drivers, I have Intel® HD Graphics 3000 and Standard VGA Graphics Adapter (which cannot start - Code 10). With these, I am at least able to play League of Legends, though not very smoothly as I often experience 5+ seconds of the game freezing.
Sorry for the wall of text. My questions - Have I burned out (or damaged) my GPU? Or is there some way that I can test what the issue is?
My patience to frustration ratio has dwindled greatly while dealing with this, so any help would be greatly appreciated!
