P4 casusing Bluescreen for Vista and 7?

I always have the bluescreen for 3 to 4 times whenever a newer version of the video card driver is installed. As the P4 CPU is the ONLY outdated component in my PC, I suspect that it is the cause. Is it possibly due to the P4 CPU ?

BTW, Does anyone here run Windows 7 RC1 OS? Is there any compatibility issue with your PC?

Thank you.

  1. What does the bluescreen say? What other hardware do you have?
    Come on, we need details!

    Also, RC1 working just fine here, and downstairs in my dad's 500 MHz Pentium III laptop.
  2. RC1 works with what I have, video card drivers atm are beta for win 7 (even if some are certified) and thus, don't expect much

    IE, my rig crashes with BSOD with the dp driver (nvsomething.dll) when watching some 12 gig bluray movies with k-lite mega, yet works fine with windows media player

  5. turn off automatic restart, d1 seems to point to a driver issue epically with display drivers, try a clean install by running driver cleaner (grab a free version, it should work) and then the latest driver (if you got the latest ones and the 9600 isn't being supported on the newest drivers then move to a known working one).

    If this doesn't work, maybe the card just called it quits, maybe you can RMA it?


    Now this is all assuming that display is the issue, if you disable auto restart and actually saw which driver was causing it then there would be different ways of handling it, like if it's a NIC or something onboard, maybe the mobo is going or you need new drivers.

    Thanks. I will turn off the auto restart and copy(but hope I won't need to) down the BSOD info next time I see it.
