Use the one that goes with your driver. Less possibility of conflicts.

Sorry, I forgot to mention PhysX is 'standalone' It actually doesn't matter too much if you use the newer physx with the older driver and since Skyrim doesn't doesn't support physx, it matters even less in this case.

One downside to reverting to older drivers is that you'll lose some of the game specific optimizations of the newer drivers, but in this case stability is more important than a few optimizations

The intel driver *may* be an issue if the laptop is using Optimus - Optimus is where the the integrated GPUS switch between the intel GPU on the CPU and the dedicated nvidia GPU depending on load.

Ideally when under full 3D load (like in Skyrim) the nvidia GPU is doing the work. In low 2D loads, the intel GPU takes over. If you still experience crashing with the older driver, it's a possibility that there may be some 'handover issues' (The GPU switching gets 'confused') resulting in the TDR.

Good luck

Are there ways to make the handoff smoother between the two GPUs? This is all new information to me, and very informative. Appreciate your knowledge and your willingness to share it.

Aside from disabling the intel GPU, unfortunately I'm not sure if there is a way to 'force' an application to use a particular chip ensuring a smoother handover between the required powerstates.

(My whizzbang laptop has this feature disabled for some reason and I haven't had a chance to have a proper play with it)

I'd share more if I could

Still a couple more things to try:
  1. Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup
  2. Repair Install

If you need help getting the appropriate DVD for the repair install, we can help you find the ISO file to download and burn to disc. Just Google: windows 7 sp1 integrated iso offical direct download link

Also, after the repair install, install the older versions of the driver as suggested by smarteyeball

Albatross147, before the repair install, you could also try disabling your Intel GPU through device manager and see if it resolves the issue.
