kernel module

I‘m using NVIDIA UNIX x86_64 Kernel Module version (driver) 280.13 under Debian 64 bit Linux with Linux kernel 2.6.32-5-amd64 x86_64. However, I’m getting the following errors in my /var/log/messages file

This error occurs randomly and my laptop goes in hard freez mode. The hard reboot is the only way to recover from complete freeze of my Dell M6500 Debian Linux based laptop. How do I fix this problem?
