NVidia Driver Display Error 295.73

Can someone offer some help?

I have a brand new machine, assembled by MicroCenter. I have an EVGA GTX GeForce 570 2.56GB GPU with an Intel 3930 2011 Socket CPU, an ASUS X79 Deluxe motherboard and G Skill RipJaws RAM (8x4, 32GB, 1600). When I first got the machine, it started to randomly go to black screen for a few seconds, then the screen would come back and I'd get this error message -

"Display driver NVIDIA Windows Kernal Mode Driver Version 295.73 has stopped responding and has successfully recovered"

I took the machine back to MicroCenter and they tested the memory and the GPU and found no problems. The tech said he couldn't replicate the error. I took the machine home and immediately started getting the same message. All drivers are absolutely new - as of yesterday.

Can anyone help me figure out how to resolve this problem?

Uninstall your current video card drivers. Use driver sweeper to remove any other driver files from your system. Reboot when prompted. Download the latest NVIDIA drivers from their website.

Install. Report back if problem still persists.

The machine has just returned from service where all new drivers were installed - this was yesterday. Will the "uninstall-sweep-reinstall" make any contribution if the drivers were just installed yesterday? I'll be glad to do it, but I don't know why the process should work.

Those are old drivers. Go to the Nvidia website and install the latest 304.79 drivers.
