I have recently started having problems occur with my system when attempting to watch online videos. This usally occurs on Youtube and Vevo, it seems to be a random occurence as some time it works and other times it won't. When the error occurs Internet Explorer locks up but the rest of the computer runs fine. After ending the process or ending the task in the task manager then does the computer freeze up. Shortly afterwards the BSOD appears. The BSOD has given me two errors that repeatdly show up which would be nv4_dsp.dll and Watchdog.sys. I've seen mulitiple issues on the subject and have tried to use the solutions to those problems but to no avail. Some of these fixes include reinstalling the video drivers and disabling hardware acceleration for the videos. The problem still occurs. Any help on the matter would be greatly appreciated.

Please post the make and model of the computer if branded.
The details of the graphics - Nvidia - which model please ie GeForce 8600gts etc
The release of the driver 280.26 was in August this year.
Did you follow please the installation instructions and from where did you download the driver.

GeForce GTS 250

I downloaded the Drivers from the Nvidia website and followed the instructions to the letter. To Alzeimer I have already disabled the hardware Accekeration but it still has not solved the issue.

I appreciatethat you say - and followed the instructions to the letter, but could you please confirm that you followed this part of the instruction

nTune
 If NVIDIA nTune is already installed
If you have previously installed NVIDIA nTune, NVIDIA recommends that you
uninstall nTune before installing this driver. After the driver install is complete, you
can reinstall nTune.

IF you did, then please proceed as below, if you did not I suggest, you try that and a reinstall of the driver.

Either Roll back the driver from device manager -
OR if that reports not available, please download and install this.

I don't have ntune due to the dangers of overclocking your system improperly so I attempt to avoid any kind of overclocking. I did a roll back to the 275.33 edition. Now could the possibly problem be just a bug with the newest release of drivers from Nvidia, and im also going to continue streaming videos to see if the problem reoccurs.

I did a roll back to the 275.33 edition.


Thanks for the reply.
Does that indicate that the roll back appears to have been successful.

The roll back was successful and I have yet to run across the problem again, So there must be something with the newest driver and the compatiability of my Card. But besides that no noticable problems with the PC so I think this is safe to say this is solved.

Yup, I'm guessing that the newest drivers isnt as stable as Nvidia thought it was. That or my Video card just doesnt work well with the update.

You should try my suggestion about disabling the hardware accelerator in Flash Player, I had the almost exact problem as you and no matter what version of the drivers I tried it would always bsod when listening to videos on the net.

So if your problems happens only when watching videos on the net (broswer freezes fallowed by bsod) than try my suggestion it fixed my problem.

I have already said this twice but I disabled it and no change has occured, the problem is still there. So there is some other underlying cause.
