XP stop error on my laptop

  Villane 07:28 27 Apr 06

Hi all,
I run a Hp Pavilion zd7000 laptop and it's 2 years old and I keep it as healthy as I can. Just recently I have been getting a stop error message appear on my machine causing it to go to blue screen and restart. The info I get on this error is as follows:
Device driver stop error.
NPdriver.sys address f30f2fa5 base at f30ED000, date stamp.

I solved this temporarily by going to hp's site and reinstalling the graphix card software (GEForce fx Go5600). However when I update the card with the latest windowsxp driver that's when the problem seems to occur and I play a game that needs the latest driver on it!
Can someone give me advice what to do on this please?
Many thanks

still ot working but now it's giving me this:

This issue may occur if the display driver is caught in an infinite loop while it waits for the video hardware to become idle. This issue typically indicates a problem with the video hardware or that the display driver cannot program the hardware correctly.

strange it seems to happen every 4 or 5 times I log into XP, Norton sucks I guess, anyone got a solution?
