So i just got my new gaming rig set up. all i do is watch videos in HD and play wow on it, but my gtx 460 cuts out randomly sometimes. when im watching/playing something full screen (23" moniter, accures more when in full 1080p hd) the game/video stops, my screen goes completely black. and i get a message saying that the nvideo gtx460 driver failed and recovered.. this is extremely anoying sometimes. it can happen every 3 seconds to every hour. i have reinstalled the drivers twice and have put the video card in a different slot and it hasnt helped..

More about : gtx460

Try doing a clean install of your drivers(forgot to mention),here is how
1_Download driver sweeper (from guru3d.com)
2_Go to control panel and uninstall your current driver
3_Reboot and go to safemode and open driver sweeper and click on Nvidia,then choose clean
4_Boot normally and Install the latest driver again.

One suggestion:
Remove all drivers and install ONLY the original drivers which came on the disk with the card.

Let's take it on from there...

Try lowering the clocks to stock on the graphic card and see if that helps the stability, use afterburner.
