There were changes to the recent nVidia drivers specifically for HDMI, so try the latest 186.06 editions.

If the laptop is started with the cable already plugged in, does it still crash?

I always plugged it in and out with laptop and tv left on,
now i'll turn tv off first and its really hit or miss whether it crashes or not.

I just did another nvidia update from the actual nvidia site and it seems to be holding for now,
the update i did yesterday i think was from a 3rd party vendor
