I posted too soon – the problem happened again last night when I was watching a video online using Adobe Flash Player. It was a sudden flicker of screen followed by a black screen and auto-restart. It happened with the default installation of NVIDIA Verde 295.73 (WHQL) driver – the PowerMizer was enabled.

The driver is highly unstable for some reason.
