I have an Intel Pentium dual CPU E220 (2.20 ghz) running with 3gb of memory and 32-bit Win 7. I recently installed a NVIDIA Geforce 9500 GT and have begun getting random BSOD's on a regular basis, all seemingly with the same cause - detailed below. I've tried upgrading the drivers for the graphics card and device manager shows no problems.
Crashdump attached... any suggestions as to how to sort this would be muchly appreciated

This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem.
The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver which cannot be identified at this time.
