Angry PLZ HELP!!!

I reformatted my system and installed everything again. Everything is going 100% apart I need to update my video card drivers to get my games to play better, GTA SA in particular. It will play with out the driver update but the player sometimes turn into a pile of pictures when moving which really wrecks the feel of the game. I had no problems playing before the reformat. When I download and install the driver update from the Nvidia website ( it works ok till about 2 minutes into the game where windows shuts down saying ‘ windows has been shutdown to stop damage to your system and say that the video card is the problem. What can I do to update the card without getting this error? I think I must have had an older driver installed before the format as it work perfectly, is the anyway I can get an older driver?

Any help would be great

It could be possible that the card is going bad. What is the temp of the card when you receive this error?
