I have a second computer that I used as a server and lately I have been getting a BSOD error that reads: nv4_mini.sys and it's really driving me crazy !

Last night I reformatted and installed XP Pro SP1 and had the same errors. I tried XP Pro SP2 and that didn't install right. I finally got XP Pro SP2 installed from a slipstream disk and I was installing some programs and had the darn error again ! I'm trying to install Roxio right now (2nd time). 1st install resulted in, you guessed it, an nv4_mini.sys error.

Couple questions- Is this related directly to the Nvidia GTS2 Pro card I'm using ? If so, I have a ATI 9800 Pro I could (and would) stick in if it would end the errors. Before my reformats, I tried all sorts of Nvidia drivers and did the driver cleaner in between in safe mode and still had the same error after each driver install at some point. I was saving the ATI card for a different build but would sacrifice it. Right now I haven't even loaded up any Nvidia drivers after the reformat. I'm running off XP's native vid drivers.

The computer specs are a couple different hard drives, a Lite-on DVD burner, a Gigabyte 7ZX mobo with a AMD Athlon 1100 CPU.

Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated !
