It looks like the nvidia driver might be giving problems.
If this has just started, you may have had an automatic update, so try re-installing the driver. Otherwise look for later versions.

You could try uninstalling Office 2010 using Microsoft Fix it, or better still manually, and then reinstall.

I've re-installed a couple of times and the problem dis-appears for a while then returns, looking for cause or permanent fix.
