VGA Lagging?

Hello

I have Alienware area-51 m17x-R1 with SLI GeForce 8800M GTX. Few days ago my PC stacked, after reset I understood that VGA driver downed. I installed last driver (258.96 WHQL) from nvidia website, it works two days until my PC restarted because of updates. Afterwards windows 7 started to stack after loading.
Via safe mode I tried to install 258.96 WHQL, 197.16 WHQL and 195.81 Beta, but windows was stacking after loading.
Then I installed 176.10 and windows starts to work. But when I enable SLI computer restarts and after windows loading, I am getting blue screen.
I tried to install higher driver but they doesn't work.

* Coolers are clean
* Computer wasn't moved during this time
* Grantee expired

What shall I do?

I would go back and uninstall some of the windows 7 updates until my computer works correctly again.

Can you boot into safe mode by press F8 at computer restart ?
 If you can get into safe mode go and uninstall the updates and boot back normal again.

jamietoner, you are right, once on "nvidia" gadget, temperature of slave VGA was 160*. But after that it was working.
Could you give me an advice, please. Shall I buy new same card or buy 280M? Will 280M work with 8800M in SLI mode?

Grant1842, I reinstalled windows, same problem.
