In your games library, right click on driver, go to the tab "Local Files" and click on the "verify integrity of cache" button. This will check if all the files are present and redownload if anything's not.

Second- here's a thread in the Steam forums talking about the problem (I just googled "Steam driver.exe stopped working" and it was the first result. Usually you'll get faster results by Googling than by waiting for others to answer). The solutions that seemed to work for some people there-
1. Unplug any controller you might have connected and play using mouse and keyboard.
2. If you're playing on an old laptop/using an old monitor the game tried to launch at an inappropriate resolution (1600 on something). Try connecting it to an HDTV/a newer monitor and then if it launches change the resolution to something your monitor will handle, usually 1024x768.
Third- some general fixes. Make sure your game files are verified. Here's how to do that.
Make sure your video card drivers and directx are up to date. This is how you update your video card drivers, and this is how to update DirectX.
Restart your computer after all those.
Didn't work? Try using the Steam support page as listed above.
