Default Random freezes on GTS 360M

Hi. I'm using Mandriva Linux 2010.2 running on the kernel 2.6.36.3. My Asus laptop has the GTS 360M graphics card and I have the 32 bit 260.19.44 driver installed. I get random screen freezes very often, and the freeze frequency increases when using flash 10.2. The only way out is to power of the laptop and restart again. Can anyone please suggest a fix for this issue? Thanks.

Do try, also make a file /etc/adobe/mms.cfg that contains:

EnableLinuxHWVideoDecode=1
