Windows 7 Crashes after 4-5 Hours of Idle time

#1
I am running a dell xps m1330, 2.0 ghz 32 bit intel core duo, and a geforce 8400M GS video card. After I installed windows 7 after a random but lengthy set of computer idle time (ie 4-6 hours). I will come back to the computer, boot it up, and it will tell me that it has suffered an unexpected shutdown and that I can either boot normally or check disk. I ran an event report for the situation and I got these two events that really stuck out to me.

Which makes me think for sure that it is a driver issue but I have installed the latest NVIDIA drivers for windows 7 so I have no other idea as to what this could be. Any thoughts?
