Hi,

My Windows XP Is stuck on 4 bit color mode and 640x480. When i try to change higher resolution / color mode it normally gives me blue screen of death nv4_disp with nvidia drivers. without the drivers installed i dont get blue screen when i change it it just reverts back to 640x480 and 4 bit color. something to do with drivers. I unistalled driver and removed all traces of it with driver sweeper and then reinstalling them. I tried latest/older ones but without luck i'm still stuck with 4 bit. I have 2 partitions 1 backup and other system. I formatted win xp and reinstalled but problem still there. I even get 4 bit dell boot up screen in the loading bar i see dots and then when win xp loading appears i see background with dots its like its 4 bit in my dell screen boot up too. Its not my graphics card or monitor they both work fine. Yesterday I managed to fixed it but then i got it the 4 bit again :/ . I removed the drivers and installed older ones it worked fine i restarted pc all the dots were gone . dell screen boot up was normal no dots.Was fine till I played mw2 for about 10 secs i was ingame all working fine then i got the nv4_disp BSOD and it was 4 bit again. If i got it fixed and plus i palyed mw2 all textures loaded i was ingame so it cant be graphics card dead? It has to to be some drivers conflicts or something. I tried the same again unistall/installing drivers again but it didnt work.

With Nvidia drivers installed i cannot boot up my pc normally only safe mode. If do try to boot it up normally with nvidia drivers i get nv4_disp Blue screen something about infinite loop. The only way i can bootup normally is without nvidia drivers installed.

then you need to try your graphics card on another computer, and if it works,its your computer gone bad, but if it doesn't work then your 9800 gt is faulty.

I had somewhat similar problem when I reinstalled XP (with sp1, original cd) some time ago on an older system. If I installed the latest nv drivers straight away on the fresh windows, it would get stuck at 4 bits and some very low resolution after the reboot. The solution was to first fully update windows xp and only after that would the nv drivers work correctly. It might have been some .net enviroment thingie or something that was needed, not sure what exactly...
