Nvlddmkm.sys error

My computer is running 2 XFX 9400GT GPU's. Whenever I play a game for any extended period of time, the computer will lock up for a few moments, then display a BSOD. The screen says that the display driver attempted to recover from timeout and failed. It says change certain BIOS memory options, and reinstall any new software or hardware. It then displays the nvlddmkm.sys file, and procedes to do a mini dump. After dumping, the computer restarts.

I've searched all over the internet, and found that this seems to be a common issue. Unfortunatly i couldnt find a fix for it. I was wondering if anyone knew of a fix for this issue, or if I am going to need to purchase new graphics cards.

Thanks for the help.
