Default Updated nVIDIA video driver needed

Today when I was capturing video to my hard drive today my computer rebooted after about 45 minutes into a 2 hour capture.

As soon as the desktop came back up, an MS Windows Error message appeared that said,

"Computer restarted after an unexpected shutdown. MS Windows detected a possible device problem. The driver for the display device was unable to complete a drawing operation. Please check with the device manufacturer for a device update. Please tell MS about this problem. The display driver for nVIDIA RIVA TNT2 model 64(HP) seems to be responsible for the system instability".

My HP Pavilion 7955 came with the nVIDIA driver installed so nVIDIA is now telling me they don't support it and can't provide an undated driver.

This is the third time I have gotten a reboot while capturing video to my hard drive.

Can someone tell me where I can get an undated driver for my nVIDIA RIVA TNT2 model 64(HP)? I would appreciate any kind of help with this. Thanks.
