  1. right now it java that not working well with nvidia video drivers. try updating java and in java itself turn off hardware exsloration (sp). and se if the card stops locking up. also sometime when you update to a newer driver parts of the old drivers are left in the registry. i would use a drive sweeper and then load the 298 or the newest driver from nvidia web page. if the card still locking up it may be on it way out.
  2. Which drivers are you currently using?
    Try rolling back to previous or more stable driver, that you have had.

    No nothing is wrong with your card, I had the same issue. Its just NVIDIA's driver team has hit a little rough patch lately with their drivers. But they will fix them.... They always Do!

    Try a different driver then. You might be using the beta 301.24. Try 295.73 or 296.10.
