Hey guys, well this morning I booted up my computer to see that I got a bsod just as I loaded up, and it told me that something was wrong with nv4_disp. I decided to boot into safe mode and I uninstalled my drivers as I thought this was related to my nvidia drivers for my video card, which is a 7600gt (x2 in sli), and everything seemed to be going fine and I loaded into windows and installed my drivers, but as I loaded back into my desktop after a restart, my resolution was at 640x480 and I could not change it. I've been sitting here for almost 6 hours now trying to figure this out and its driving me crazy, does anybody know what's wrong and if there's a fix besides a reformat? I already tried to repair XP with the disk. Thanks.

1. Navigate to: C:\Windows\Minidump folder.
If you see any .dmp files, zip all of them, and attach zipped file to your next reply.

3. Turn computer off. Open the case. Get a can of compressed air, and clean the inside well. Re-seat video card.
