Crysis crashing issue

Hello again seven forums!

After you guys have fixed all my issues so far i figure this one should right up your alley. Just installed Crysis into my machine and it ran like a dream. High graphics, 50 - 60 fps. Fun times had by all. Im in the first level "Recovery" and I am right at the point where you break down the door and enter to find the chinese girl as a hostage. When the mini cut scene happens, the game freezes. There is no looping music, the sound keeps playing for about 5 seconds then the screen goes black and windows tells me that Crysis had to shut down. After this there are two scenarios:

Scenario 1: I am playing full screen at 1440 x 900 and the game goes into shut down mode. It will freeze, tell me that Crysis had to shut down due to a critical error, then my computer blue screens and restarts.

Scenario 2: I am playing in windowed mode and everything that happens above will happen anyway except the blue screen. Windows will tell me that my graphics card had to shut down but that it recovered. The screen gets a little snowy lookin' and everything appears to run fine.

Notes to make about the what i did to combat this: GPU Never went above 60 degrees Celsius, fan was ran between 55% and 100% and made no difference. Card is not overclocked. CPU is not overclocked. tried at all different ranges of video quality and still nothing helped. My little brother has the exact same everything on his computer except a different mobo and decreased CPU speed and RAM and his runs perfectly well. I have tried two different drivers on my GPU and neither work (191.XXX stock and 196.XXX).

Any other questions for me let me know. Thanks in advance for your help.
