I have bought a completely new pc and in five days I have obtained three BSOD related to "nv4_disp" and Thread stuck in device.

The problem occurs NOT during heavy video usage (I have also tried some SANDRA stress tests) but somewhat early after the boot, usually when I'm surfing with Firefox (3.5.8... latest version)

My video card (PNY GT240) is new, I've got no problem playing games (currently I'm playing Fallout 3 with high details for HOURS!) or watching movies, temperatures are low (max 49°C), I've got a good PSU (Zalman ST 600W) and finally I've installed the latest nVidia drivers. My case mount a big lateral, a frontal and a rear 120mm fan plus the processor&video ones.

I've also run chkdsk on both my drives and it has'nt found any problems. My OS is WinXP sp3 with all critical updates installed.

If you don't mind, upload the dump file from D:\WINDOWS\Minidump.

Did you install your Windows on D drive instead?

Yes windows was installed on drive d:

However I've downgraded my graphic drivers to a previous version (191.07)... the last nVidia release (196.21) seems to give lot of troubles.

For now no BSOD...

Basically NVIDIA introduced a serious Kernel bug starting with drivers 196.21 up to current 197.45. This is also related to the nv_disp BSODs

This seems to affect all the XP based kernels. WinXP, 2003, etc.
When running a game or video software you will notice the kernel mode gets 30%+ usage which causes lockups and other performance issues. Kind of like high DPC usage.

This can be seen by running iarsn Taskinfo and looking at the cpu usage while game is in the background. You will notice 30% of RED KERNEL mode usage. It should show only GREEN (USER MODE).

The latest driver that does not have this problem is 195.62. Every other driver after that will have this major issue.
I'm surprised Nvidia or other users did not notice this. I have tested this with 9800GT and 285GTX on different machines P35 and X38 chipset.

It does not seem to affect Win7. But still there are some issues with these latest drivers and performance, especially in older games etc.

So we're stuck with 196.62 until nvidia fixes this. Seems as if they are pushing people away from XP. Unfortunately XP runs some games much better than Win7/Vista etc.

I'd like others to confirm this. Download Taskinfo and try this out.
