Default BSOD---Graphics Card Error

I have a GTX 295, and it is brand new, and when I'm playing games, the game will frequently freeze up and it will have some very graphicy effects. I can mostly minimize, then maximize, and everything works again. But when playing a game recently, the game has completely frozen my computer, and in seconds, the BSOD has popped up. It has happened twice now, and I don't think this should be happening with the brand new system I have. Any help is great.

Windows 7 RC 64 BIT.

What is the BSOD Stop Error code? Have you gotten the latest set of drivers from the nVidia site? they are on version 190.38 and they work perfectly in Win7. I use them myself.

That will help you to understand what is meant by the Stop Error Code.

Use Driver Sweeper from Guru3D.com to remove all traces of the old driver.
