Windows 7: Nvdia GTX260M freezes

Nvdia GTX260M freezes

I've been using this computer for a long time, and never had this experience.
However, ever since last week, after the ACPI Battery Control device went missing, The Graphics card went bonkers.
Idk if those two have something to do with each other, or they are just two different things, but this is really getting on my nerves.
So, whenever I am playing Civilization 5, the computer will just glitch up, and sometimes the dreadful bluescreen comes up, and other times, it just goes black, forcing me to manually reboot. I checked using the GPU-Z and the temperature is not extraordinarily hot, just at 47 degree Celsius. Please someone help he.

Check in Devices and Printers to see if anything is showing a triangle symbol.
