This is not a issue caused by graphics drivers, it is a issue with Microsoft and your operating system. Read > http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/gg487368.aspx Adjusting your TDR to 8 from the default of 2 can solve this issue...sometimes. Here is how > http://www.sevenforums.com/bsod-help-support/51028-help-me-configure-registry-correctly-solve-tdr-issue.html

The following is a way to extend the time Windows waits before it restarts the video. It doesn't "fix" the original issue, but it should prevent most, if not all, of the TDR's from happening. It's like disabling airbags in a car because they keep randomly deploying- it's not really a fix, but at least you can drive again

Note: If you are not familiar with editing the registry, I wouldn't recommend changing the TDR. It involves creating new keys and values, which have to be exactly the same as the instructions, even the capitalization.
1.Click Start, Run, and type "regedit"
2.Navigate to: HKey Local Machine\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\
3.Locate the "GraphicsDrivers" key, and right-click on it.
4.Click "New"at the top of the page and create "DWORD" value"(for 32bit) or "QWORD" (for 64bit)
5.Label the new value "TdrDelay"
6.Double click on TdrDelay, and enter the number of seconds you want Windows to wait before timing out. The default is two seconds, so start out with 8, and you can make it a few seconds longer if it doesn't fix the issue.
7.Close the registry editor and reboot the computer.

It will look like this:
