I just did a reformat and install of Windows XP. I can't do anything in the computer (laptop - Dell Inspiron 8100) for more then a few minutes or else it crashes (blue screen of death) and gives the problem as nv4, which I know to be the dll for the Geforce Go 2 video card. I tried the new Nvidia drivers but it says it can't find compatable hardware for the newest drivers.

Any ideas on how to fix the problem? I can't even get through a scan for the microsoft updates due to the crash.
