Thank you.

Please let me know if I can provide any additional information.

For now I can tell you the following:

I also tried running StarCraft II in Windows 7 on the laptop, and also there the computer crashed in a similar way. I tried a few versions of the nvidia driver to see if I could escape the crash. And the beta from the 300 series of the driver seems to have a work-around. What happens with the 200 series driver I tried is that the computer freeze and the speakers emitt a noise. In the 300 series once in ~4 hour game play, there was one incident where the game froze for less than a second and emitted the sound, as it had crashed, but recovered and was able to continue. (But since the crashes are sort of random, it is hard to tell if it is actually fixed.)

Windows also provided me with a "The graphics driver has stopped responding and been reloaded" at one crash. And also allowed me to submit a crash report of some kind, connected to some windows troubleshooting tool.

So there might be a fix in the Win 7 driver. Hope this helps.
