Driver_irql_not_less_or_equal Nv4_mini.sys

  1. My computer keeps rebooting itself at random times (under 5 mins from startup).

    Before I upgraded the nvidia drivers, it would restart even before fully booting into windows xp.

    I cannot reinstall windows w/o having a BSOD.

    After I installed the latest drivers for my geforce 3 ti200, windows xp boots up and stays booted for ~5 mins then it BSOD's with the error file NV4_MINI.SYS. Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    You're card is dying. That's an old card, kinda like your grandfather's, grandfather's, grandfather's grandfather.

    That is a very old card. It might by diening, or it might be bad drivers. Try using Omega Drivers. They may solve the problem.
