Graffix card or Driver?

Keep getting this error:

The driver nv4_disp for the display device \Device\Video0 got stuck in an infinite loop. This usually indicates a problem with the device itself or with the device driver programming the hardware incorrectly. Please check with your hardware device vendor for any driver updates.

As far as i can tell the Graffix card is working fine,this just kicks in at random times,mostly when i play games but sometimes just idle on the desktop.
I have checked the nvidea site for driver updates but it points me back to the one i have installed

try this, right click desktop\properties\settings\advanced check the graphics acceleration drop the slider down a notch at a time and test it

Had similar message just before graphics card died on me. Updated the drivers and worked ok for a short while (6800 nvidia series) then got corruption on display. Rectangular dots over the screen then nothing. Sounds like the GPU is failing.
