Display driver problems

I just got a new computer with NVIDIA GEForce GT 220 graphics card and Windows 7 professional installed
From time to time it says driver crashed and the screen sort of freezes for a while then everything goes back to normal
I have attached a screen shot of my error message
How do I fix this?

Thanks in advance
