FTL crashes my video card drivers.

Hey all, I couldn't find a resolution to this on any of the support websites yet, so here I am.

I bought FTL two days ago. Enjoyed the crap out of it the first day, started running into problems the second day. When I ran it, I'd get strange artifacting on my second display. After a while, the game full-on lost any coherent display (game was running in my main monitor)). Closed it, re-started, and my graphics driver crashed and had to restart. FTL locked up as well. Restarted my computer, ran it again, and then it gave Windows an error that I have never seen before - which is exceedingly strange, as I work in tech support. According to my error log, my Local Security Authority service stopped working, which caused windows to have to restart itself. I left the computer alone for a little while after this, then came back to try again. After this point, all I got was an "OpenGL - too many errors" error at some point during the loading process, and that's progressed until today.

TL;DR

1) Artifacting on my second monitor
2) Video card driver crashing
3) Windows LiveKernelEvent error
4) OpenGL - too many errors

I have:

1) Updated my graphics card drivers - newest nVidia GeForce GTX560 drivers
2) Run memory diagnostics - two and a half passes of Memtest86+, no errors
3) checked my GPU temperatures - ~40 degrees Celsius idle, ~60 with medium load.

I will be running a full system diagnostic for the next little while. In the meantime, any help you folks could give me would be wicked.

Alright, so my system diagnostic came back fine (Eurosoft PCCheck). My last test is going to be a 3dMark loop overnight, but at this point I think I've ruled out a hardware issue.

Any thoughts? My next step is a re-OS, but I'd love to be dissuaded from that path.

I am experiencing the same issue. So far it cost me two games (and I have only been playing for a few hours).

What happens is that all of a sudden, the screen turns black and when it comes back online five seconds later, FTL is gone (crashed I guess) and system informs me that graphic drivers have crashed.

It does not happen in any other game or software. My laptop runs cleanly for most of the time.

I have the latest drivers.

I have a "Mobile Intel(r) 4 Series Express Chipset Family" graphic card according to my system.

This error is pretty annoying especially considering that I lose my progress when that happens.

Any and all advice would be welcome.

It actually seems to have un-hosed itself for me. I played for about an hour last night with no issues, after going through a couple of the steps listed at this site:

Also, my computer was running idle after finishing diags for quite a while that day, which I've noticed tends to chill it out when it's having issues.
