Windows 7: Constant crashing on StartUp of games or videofiles.

22 Nov 2010   #1

Windows Ultimate 7 32-bit
Constant crashing on StartUp of games or videofiles.

Using a NVidia GeForce 7400 on a Sony VAIO PCG-8V2L

Upon starting a game (Dynasty Warriors Online), the laptop just BSOD automatically.

this also happens sometimes when I just go to open a video file.

The file that shows up upon the BSOD is always nv4_mini.sys everytime.

is there anything I can do to give a better look/data on the crashes I'm getting?
