Display driver locks up with strange (static) audio feedback and takes the system with it

This problem has seemed to crop up 4 days ago so I took some steps based on other forum posts:

Removed Norton antivius (first step)
Removed Chrome (first step)
Removed Skype (first step)
Removed Display Drivers replaced with driver off windows update (second step)
Replaced above driver with 306.23 [SUP]WHQL[/SUP] (Third step)

Still having issues with display driver lockup leading to DPC blue screen about 80% of the time

Any help someone can render me would be much appreciated :D

It appears to be an issue with the NVidia drivers and specific video chipsets, but as to what it's hard to say (their Win8 drivers have been pretty unstable since the beginning). There's a new driver up on Windows Update that I installed today on my own machines, and the stability has returned, so you might want to consider going to NVidia's site directly, or attempting to install driver updates from WU.
