Blue Error page nv4_mini.sys has me on an endless loop. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Purchased & Installed New Hard Drive and then I used the Recovery Disc which had XP Home on it.  I bought XPPro and started to install it. As soon as the syatem said it was going to reboot, it's been in a never ending loop of Windows XP Pro page to Blue error screen saying nv4_mini.sys caused this-and then goes black and reboots!#$%^$#^!  I can't make it stop.  Please help.

  • Based on internet searchs. I found that nv4_mini.sys driver belongs to your graphic card driver. Start by updating it.

    It is possible that this is due to a malware program so perform a full scan. If malware programs are detected then uninstall them and perform a repair install if your OS.

     

     

    please use Microsoft Skydrive to upload dump files (%systemroot%\minidumps like c:\windows\minidumps) and post a link here.

    If you want to read dump files without my help, use Windbg and refer to this Microsoft article:

    You don't need to open two threads for the same problem.
