If the problem occurred after updating the graphics driver, try "rolling back" the driver to the previous version as it was.

Open Device Manager.
Right-click the graphics adapter under "Display Adapters" and choose "Properties".
Click the "Driver" tab.
Click "Roll Back Driver"

The roll back driver did not seem to help. The crash only occurs when I am playing a graphic intense game. If that help any. I was reading around and I think it might have to do with power to my graphics card, but I don't know. Let me know if there is any information that you need that would help.
