Howdey all - I am at my wits end here.

I have been having multiple BSOD's over the past couple of weeks. I thought it might have been a hardware issue - i blew out all the dust - there wasnt much. I thought it might be a ram issue - ran memtest all day and it came up negative.

I dont know what is happening - Like I said its been multiple crashes - I ran chkdsk /r a few times and there were sectors deleted and repaired. It showed quite a few corrupt areas. below I have attatched my WhoCrashed log:

Now - I see alot of nvidia stuff on there - I updated my driver for this card and still get these crashes. I also seem to have no problem watching videos on my computer, but when i open google to watch things online, shockwave crashes and sometimes the computer. I have avast and malware bytes installed, ran both and they came up negative. I also ran Ccleaner to no avail.

The crashes that stand out the most are srv.sys, ntoskrnl.exe, and some others - I also sometimes get the small gray boxes that come up and have letter number combinations ( not 0x0 ) codes saying error this and failed that. - however they dont stay open long before i then get the BSOD. I am ready to re install the OS, but wanted to check here first and see if there is anything I can do.

Thanks for reading.

Hi Bhinsz84 -
This was listed on the NVIDIA Forum site. Please read through it and try to use the information.
The problems were the same as you have described.
I would then try sfc /scannow to check your files if you have a XP CD. (Same as chkdsk /r procedures).
Post back after you have a play with these directions.
Thank You -

A. I think the BSOD and nv4_disp.dll error indicates a driver error. Try reinstalling the drivers using the guide below.
B. Try to use a lower resulotion (1024*xxx)
C. the resolution slider allways moves to 640*480, never mind - let it be. Mine does that too.
D. In Nvidia control panel - Stereo properties - set the Stereo Enable Mode on Enabled
E. Try running the AquaMark3 bench it works: http://downloads.guru3d.com to confirm that 3D works.

Guide to installing new video drivers:
1. disconnect from net.
2. disable antivirus
3. uninstall current video driver (remove Nvidia from add/remove programs in controlpanel).
4. reboot
5. as the reboot comes, after the quick memory test/HD recognition, hit F8 and enter safe mode.
6. Win XP safe mode will autodetect new hardward and ask to install driver. Cancel.
7. run Driver Cleaner Pro (www.drivercleaner.net) with filter for Nvidia (and ATI).
8. quit and repeat step 4 and 5.
9. install new video driver 91.31 (not 3D).
10. reboot.
11. start antivirus and connect to net (reboot if nessesary). This is the best way to completely remove an old driver and install a new.
12. install DirectX (www.softwarepatch.com/windows/directx.html)
13. install overclock tool Coolbits (www.laptopvideo2go.com/nvtweak) (not needed unless OCing).
14. install monitor driver
15. reboot.
16. install Nvidia stereo/3D driver 91.31.
17. reboot.
18. start - controlpanel - Nvidia control panel - view - use classic nvidia controlpanel - ok - close control panel window
19. right click on quick launch icon - set up monitor resolution/refresh rate etc.
20. right click on quick lauch icon - launch Nvidia controlpanel
21. stereo properties - enable - (adjust Stereo Gamma Setting) - apply
22. medical test image - escape - yes
23. stereo properties - stereo setup & test - set Monitor size (19"), bits per pixel (32), Stereo refresh rate (120Hz) and Resolution (1024*768) - vink Always use stereo refresh rate - Set rate for all resolutions - Apply
24. Launch test application - escape - ok
25. Performance and quality settings - vertical sync - off - apply
26. (Clock Frequency Settings - Manual overclocking - Detect Optimal Frequencies - vink Fan allways on - vink Apply these settings at startup - Apply)
27. (Color correction - Select Color profile: Advanced mode - Adjust the curve - Apply - Ok)
28. exit Nvidia controlpanel

did steps 1 through 8 - driver 91.31 is not compatible with my card so it didnt install - I put in the cd and loaded the orrigional drivers - proceded through step 17 - after this I dont have any of the options listed - i went to nvidia and downloaded the latest driver - on install the graphics driver installs but not nview or physics. I havnt had any problems yet but i dont have nview or physics. I am now going to try sfc /scannow.

Also three new failures overnight - on the one just below it says it happened today at 3:31 pm ... this happened about 10 30 this morning. Will check bios time.

Bug check description: This indicates that a kernel-mode program generated an exception which the error handler did not catch.
This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem.
A third party driver was identified as the probable root cause of this system error. It is suggested you look for an update for the following driver: aswsp.sys (avast! self protection module, AVAST Software).
Google query: aswsp.sys AVAST Software KERNEL_MODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED_M

I seem to have fixed it - I redid everything from start to finish - chkdsk, sfc scannow, fully un installed video card, reinstalled with origional driver, updated to new driver, uninstalled flash completely, uninstalled avast, and ran reg cleaner - re installed.

2 Days no crashes - I will post again if it happens but so far so good. Thanks for the help.
