Solved Nv4-mini.sys bsod driver related

Messages

Heya

This is in connection with my first thread about my BSOD with Ultimate, I now have the error code nv4-mini.sys.

I am going to put vista back on fresh, and NOT install drivers from my WinFast CD. 6100M2MA, but instead get updated drivers from Nvidia and chipset driver from foxconn, the sound card is fine, i think its the VGA driver or onboard graphics driver, so i got the 178xx from Nvidia to sort out graphics and Chipset.

Can anyone else give my some tips or useful information on this matter. I have run vista before fine, but then it just goes sometimes.

Any comments are helpful

Thanks, Ben. :D

Get a driver cleaner to get rid of all Nvidia and ATI video drivers. Then, do a fresh install of the drivers. Don't overclock the video card or CPU until you get them running stable.

Glad you got it sorted out - but could you, for the erudition of future readers, explain what you did to get it all solved?
