Hi:

Can someone help me with my PC which from time to time crashes to that awful blue screen, with indecipherable code. To save time I've outlined the tech' info:


STOP: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0xBFBA536F, 0xA2238774, 0X00000000)

nv4_disp.dll - Address BFBA536F base at BF9D5000, Datestamp 453bdc7a


If you need it I run windows XP with an ASUS A8N-sli board and 7950GT GPU. I hope someone can help as this is driving me up the wall, ever since I bulit my computer last year. At one point I re-installed windows onto some new SATA drives and the problem still persists.


Cheers in advance.

Don't suppose you can clarify exactly what you mean, as I'm not too PC savy.

This error can be caused by bad RAM, too small of a (or el cheapo) power supply, Bios settings and an incompatible version of NVIDIA drivers.

Test your memory by downloading and running Memtest86+ V1.70

What power supply does you system have and what are it's specs.

Try disabling Fast Write in the Bios.

The nv4_disp.dll error is usually caused by a driver problem. Before installing new drivers make sure you uninstall all NVIDIA display drivers from the Windows Control Panel. Browse to the Start Menu > Windows Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs and search for "NVIDIA Windows Display Drivers" or "NVIDIA Display Drivers" and select remove.

Once that's done, install the following drivers making sure that you follow the installation hints:

I would suspect the memory is bad. If multiple sticks check one ata a time to see if it's just one that is bad.

That power supply is supposed to be decent.
