Thumbs down Blue screen - nv4_mini.sys
Hi everyone,
I just installed a nvidia 8400 gs graphics card to replace my ancient 'standard vga graphics adapter' that came with by Dell Inspiron 530. I uninstalled the old card through device manager and the new one successfully installed. The problem arose when I tried to play on Civ 4 and after two attempts the Blue screen of death popped up and I managed to catch something about nv4_mini.sys before the computer shutdown. Does anybody have any ideas?

Thanks for your help.
