3ds Max and GTX 580 problem... need some help please

So I recently built a new computer and have been using it for modeling in 3ds max. Since I built it about 6 months ago it has been having a problem with the Nvidia driver.

The error reads "Nvidia driver has stopped responding but has recovered." Then it says something about kernel 301.42 or the current driver that I have installed. Before it does this my comp stops responding for a second then the screen goes black and shows back up and displays the error.

I have narrowed it down to when I am using 3ds Max 2012 it does this and when I watch videos with windows media player. I can play games just fine. I can play BF3 on ultra settings for hours and it does not crash. I am thinking that it could be a setting somewhere or something that I am missing. I have looked all over the net and cannot find anything on the matter. It only does it every now and then and I have been able to deal with it thus far.

My specs are:

Motherboard: Asus p8p67 Deluxe
Graphics Card: EVGA GTX 580
Power Supply: OCZ 750W 80Plus Bronze High Performance
CPU: Intel Core i7-2600
Ram: G.Skill Ripjaw 16GB DDR3
Storage: 2TB Seagate Barracuda

download the 302 drivers and try the beta 304. Try to reinstall 3ds max.

Just downloaded it and I am going to give it a shot and hope it works. I have tried going to old drivers but the problem still occurs. I recently downloaded 3ds max 2013 and have been working with that and so far no problems but the problem still occurs with videos.

Tried the beta drivers with no luck, I still get the same problem. I am running out of ideas as to what the problem could be. I could really use some advice or some other options to try.
