How can I make my computer stop artifacting?

Specs: Windows 7
Help! I have a problem with my system.
I have an Asus N51v with an Nvidia GeForce 240m and an Intel Core 2 Duo 2.80 GHz along with 4 GB of ram and a Windows 7 32-bit operating system.
Now, ever since, about a month of purchasing my notebook, I had the dreaded nvlddmkm.sys bug which caused artifacts and crashing for ONLY my games. I'd be able to do quite literally everything else without a problem. My games would crash in a time frame of 1-2 minutes all the way to 8 hours depending on the games. I still have the artifacts and the crashing which usually locks up my computer. I've looked into it previously and found out that this can sometimes be caused by temperature.
I've clocked my temperature and it has an idle temperature of 122 F.

Basically, I need help. ASAP.
I'm worried I may need a new graphics card in which case I'll just send the entire system over to Asus to repair it. I need my computer though. XD

Seems like there was a bug in the old graphics driver. Go to this page and download the graphics driver. Then install it. Google produces a lot of info on that problem.
