Nvidia 260.01 driver has stooped working and has recoverd issues?

Hello,my name is Piyush i recently baught msi gtx 460 cyclone graphic card for my desktop....everything was working fine until i updated the nvidia driver from 260.01 to the latest 280.26....
My screen started to pixelate..everything in the screen was getting messed , but the computer was still working as i was still able to move the mouse and restarted the computer....
I figured it could be a driver problem so fresh installed windosws 7 and my old driver 260.01...
The pixilation problem was solved but i started getting these messages now
"Display driver Nvidia windows kernel driver,version 260.01 has stopped responding and has sucessfully recovered"
I then tried to play games like COD MW2 in full resolution 1440x900
and played for 2 hours non stop and didnt get the message....
But message still coming even when pc is ideal
my system spec are --
intel core 2 du0 2.8
3 gb ram
msi gtx 460 graphic card
windows 7 pirated OS
hp w1970 monitor screen (using only 1)

    I had this issue before. It turned out that my PCI-e power connector was unplugged. Check that. If it's connected, make sure your power supply is sufficient for that card.
