Hello,

for the last couple of months I have been getting the dreaded "Blue Screen Of Death" it all seems to stem from this file nv4_disp.dll , Now I have searched the internet and know its from my video card driver. I've gone through two fresh installs of my OS and seven reinstalls of my video card driver(The latest version the last four times), upon further searching I found out it could be my video card overheating, relocated my tower so it could get better air flow and it still happens the only other thing i can think of is maybe its not compatible with my motherboard or my PSU is not enough. Please help cause i have very limited money when it comes to replacing parts so i wanna make sure i get the right part on the first try.

Also when viewing videos such as on youtube my screen will freeze and all I can do is click the button to reset my computer.


PC Specs:
Intel Core 2 Duo CPU E7200 2.53GHz
3 Gigs of Ram
ASUS P5GC-MX/1333 Motherboard (According to Driver CD)

I done a search to see how I can check my hard drive, found 2 different methods tried them both and no problems. Unless my hard drive is so messed up that the scans are not showing anything it should be fine......right?

Hi.

Yeah as you say this nv4_disp.dll is to do with your graphics card. Have you been installing the drivers from the disc?

Send PM if you need further help.

Run memtest. 80% of blue screens come from memory faults.

Also try This for the win32.sys


The behavior may occur if the win32k.sys is corrupted. Go to
C:\WINDOWS\System32 and rename the Win32k.sys file to Win32k.old and then
close the window. Now go back to the system32 folder and you will have a
new and non-corrupt Win32k.sys file.

The behavior also may be caused by that the virtual memory of the Windows XP
is corrupted. Disable and then enable the Virtual Memory to see whether it
solved the problem.

To disable Virtual memory:

1. Right click My Computer and choose properties
2. Click the Advanced tab
3. Under Performance click settings.
4. Click the Advanced tab.
5. Under Virtual memory click change
6. Click no paging file
7. Click OK
8. Restart the computer

To enable Virtual memory:

1. Right click My Computer and choose properties
2. Click the Advanced tab
3. Under Performance click settings.
4. Click the Advanced tab.
5. Under Virtual memory click change
6. Click System Managed Size
7. Click OK
8. Restart the computer
