Try another driver version. check for the 301.24 latest BETA drivers, if that is not working rollback to the 295.73 driver.

GeForce R300 drivers are packed with new industry-leading, GeForce-exclusive features as well as some really nice performance increases in top games.

New in R300 Drivers:

•NVIDIA FXAA Technology – shader-based anti-aliasing technology available from the NVIDIA Control Panel that enables ultra-fast anti-aliasing in hundreds of PC games. FXAA delivers similar quality to 4x multi-sample antialiasing (MSAA) but is up to 60% faster, enabling substantially higher performance in games. FXAA is supported on all GeForce 8-series and later GPUs. Note: This feature is disabled for games that already have built-in support for FXAA. Visit GeForce.com to learn more.
•NVIDIA Adaptive Vertical Sync – dynamically enables vertical sync based on your current frame rates for the smoothest gaming experience. Adaptive VSync is supported on all GeForce 8-series and later GPUs. Visit GeForce.com to learn more.•NVIDIA Frame Rate Target – dynamically adjusts frame rate to a user specified target. Support for this feature is enabled via third party applications via NVAPI. Visit GeForce.com to learn more.
•NVIDIA Surround Technology – Adds the following new Surround capabilities. Visit GeForce.com to learn more.
◦Add in a fourth accessory display to get access to your email, web, or other applications while you game.
◦Maximize an application to a single physical display when in Surround mode (enabled by default).
◦Confine the Windows Taskbar to the center display (enabled by default).
◦Enable bezel peeking – a feature which enables users to temporarily peek behind the monitor bezels using a hotkey (Ctrl + Alt + B). This feature is designed to be used in conjunction with bezel corrected resolutions.
◦Add or remove resolutions from the list of Surround resolutions (only those selected will be available to applications).

try doing a clean install (on advanced install settings on the driver).
if that don't work, try using an driver a little older like i have said before 295.73...

if noone of the above works could be a heat problem and it could be diying. but i bet on driver problems.

Who is the manufacture of the video card?

I would check their site and call there tech support to see if the have a diagnostic utility.

For example I had an evga and it was giving me many problems...I got the diagnostic utility and ran it for an hour but no errors. Being in the industry for over 25 years I knew it was a hardware issue and I insisted that to the tech support people. They didn't listen....I got the last laugh because just one month later I ran the diagnostics and was getting 5 million errors in 3 minutes :)  They not only replaced my card but gave me a free upgrade :)  So keep at it and you will solve this issue.
