Black screen and power down after latest Nvidia Driver update

Hi, All. My system was running fine until I upgraded to 334.89 last month. I upgraded on the 19th and started getting a black screen that caused my computer to reboot that day. It's happened a dozen times or more and a flag has popped up on my taskbar asking me if I want to solve a problem with my Nvidia Graphics driver. The taskbar flag offers no solutions, but it relates the problem to every event when my computer crashed when I click "view all problems this applies to."

I've tried reinstalling the newest driver. Reinstalling 322.21. Uninstalling all Nvidia software and reinstalling 322.21. Even rolling back as far as 30*.** something. Nothing shakes this new problem.

I've used several software aids to uninstall the Nvidia software before I've reinstalled 3 different versions including the latest (334.89) and it's still black screening. I have not tried a driver sweep software, which I will try now.

The problem only seems to happen in game (MWO).

My system:

Fx8350 4.0GHz (stock)
GTX580
Window 7 64bit service pack 1
16 GB RAM
Asus M5A97 R2.0
150GB WD velociraptor

If anyone has any information that can help me, please share.

Ok, nevermind, after a little more research, i've decided not to do a driver sweeper, yet. I don't know what to do.
