Hello I have been playing the new Age of Conan and sometimes it will have a few different problems playing. It will distort all the colors and hardlock, or hardlock for 10-20 seconds with the music looping in the background fast then it will unlock and be fine. Other times it will do the hardlock with the music looping then crash to a blue screen of death. This is what the info says.

It is being caused by the file NV4_disp says the device driver got stuck in an infanint loop and the tech info said. Stop: 0x000000EA (ox88dd5808, 0x88db3ca0, Oxbacbbcb4, 0x0000001)

I also had some problems like this running world of warcraft but this this bad. I have everything turned down to the lowest setting to run alright but even then I get some bad FPS. I usually run all other games with the settings maxed with no problems.

I have a AMD Athalon 3500 with a 7800GT. It uses a Asus A8n-SLI motherbord with 4 x 512 DDR NON-ECC PC3200 400Mhz ram using windows XP I think home edi.

I have tried to explain this as best I can as I only know the basics about computers. Any help would be great :) thx

Edit: I went to canyourinit.com and it said I had passes all to run AoC. I also was also going to upgrade my motherboard and sound drivers. I did my motherboard first and now after I run the canyourunit.com. It says I have You Have: NVIDIA® nForce™ Audio which is different from before it said I had RealTek 97. So now I dont know why it did this or how to update my sound card driver. :)

sorry about typos, recently broke my collar bone.

Nv4_disp.sys is your display driver, not your sound driver.
When you upgrade drivers on a board with Nvidia chipset, it's normal for the sound driver to morph from a RealTek variant into an NVidia Force Audio one.
If you have issues with Nv4_disp.sys, you should upgrade the graphics drivers first from the Nvidia website.

I have the latest driver for mt 7800GT. It should be---> driver version number: 6.14.11.7516

I also have this new weird thing that has happened. I have a "safely remove hardware" on my mini task bar thing. When I goto it. It says I have MAXTOR 6L200SO at location 0. It says it is one of my disk drives but I have no idea why it showed up there. And I cant do anything to get rid of it. I dont really want to stop it because I cant remove it. Anyways more help would be good :) ty

The "Safely Remove Hardware" for the hard drive is normal. You won't be able to stop it.

The blue screens may be caused by faulty hardware (memory or graphics card) or a faulty Windows installation. Software such as MemTest86 is designed to test system memory if you leave it running for a few hours, preferably overnight.
