I'd check with Nvidia vice windows update and make sure you have the latest/greatest driver. Latest one should be 301.42 and can be found here

Are you using the onboard graphics card also? Most users stop using it when they hookup the 3rd party stuff. In which case, it wouldn't matter.

Otherwise, the newest drivers from Intel are here.

Are you usually streaming or watching a video when this happens? I'm wondering if you're computer is trying to sleep and then aborting at the last second?? Check the power settings and see if there is a correlation to any of the settings in there. Maybe try timing it from when you start a video and see if it always does it at 15-20 minutes for example.
