That sounds more like a graphics card problem than anything else?
Have you looked in teh event viewer to see if there's any clues there?

Click on Start - In the Search box, either

1) type 'Event Viewer' and hit the Enter key
or
2) type 'eventvwr' and hit the Enter key

(without the quotes!)
both lead to the same place.

Hi again, I ve just had my first BSOD... The funny thing is that it freezed during the BSOD but thank God it saved a minidump file...

I think this one points nv4_mini.sys file from my Nvidia GPU driver...

Im using the LATEST driver, being 301.42.

Try different display drivers, and use the following steps.
  1. Download the drivers you want for your display card(s)
  2. Click Start Menu
  3. Click Control Panel
  4. Click Add or Remove Programs
  5. For NVIDIA:
    • Uninstall the NVIDIA Graphics Driver (this should uninstall all NVIDIA software and drivers)
    • Restart your computer
    • Make sure NVIDIA 3D Vision Driver, NVIDIA 3D Vision Video Player, NVIDIA HD Audio Driver, and NVIDIA PhysX System Software are not still listed under Uninstall a program through Control Panel
    • If any remain of the above, uninstall one at a time
    • If asked to restart after uninstalling any of the above, do so, and continue uninstalling any remaining NVIDIA items until all are removed
  6. Restart your computer after uninstalling drivers for all display cards
  7. Install the driver you selected for the display cards once Windows starts

Remember to try multiple versions of the graphics drivers, download them fresh, and install the freshly downloaded drivers.

Try to use Hardware Identification to determine what that unknown PCI device is. The steps should be similar in XP.

Have you checked the support site for your system to find drivers? If you are using 32-bit XP, you can probably get drivers for 32-bit Vista to install. Software & Driver Downloads HP Pavilion a6532f Desktop PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English)
