Welcome to GeesktoGo.

Firstly, may I ask that if due to your commitments, apart from dealing with this problem, you have to leave the matter for the time being would you please post that you are doing so.
I will do the same for you.
That saves either of us waiting for a reply that is not going to arrive.
I do not mean of course a temporary break while you are away for an hour or so, but if you leave it for today.

Secondly, may I ask that you pursue the issue to a conclusion, hopefully successful, but please do not just leave the issue unresponded to.
Thank you.

PLEASE DO THIS
Please provide additional information about your system:

What is your system make and model?

What is your XP Version and Service Pack?

What anti-virus and firewall is currently in use.

If the system used to work properly, what do you think might have changed since the last time it did work properly?

Please provide additional information about your system:

Click Start, Run and in the box enter:

msinfo32

Click OK, and when the System Summary info appears, click Edit, Select All, Copy and then paste the information back here.

For video driver information, expand the Components, click Display, click Edit, Select All, Copy and then paste the information back here.

There will be some personal information (like System Name and User Name), and whatever appears to
be private information to you, just delete it from the pasted information.

Welcome to WhoCrashed HOME EDITION v 3.02
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This program checks for drivers which have been crashing your computer. If your computer has displayed a blue screen of death, suddenly rebooted or shut down then this program will help you find the root cause and possibly a solution.

Whenever a computer suddenly reboots without displaying any notice or blue screen of death, the first thing that is often thought about is a hardware failure. In reality, on Windows most crashes are caused by malfunctioning device drivers and kernel modules. In case of a kernel error, many computers do not show a blue screen unless they are configured for this. Instead these systems suddenly reboot without any notice.

This program will analyze your crash dumps with the single click of a button. It will tell you what drivers are likely to be responsible for crashing your computer. If will report a conclusion which offers suggestions on how to proceed in any situation while the analysis report will display internet links which will help you further troubleshoot any detected problems.


To obtain technical support visit www.resplendence.com/support

Click here to check if you have the latest version or if an update is available.

Just click the Analyze button for a comprehensible report ...

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Conclusion
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

11 crash dumps have been found and analyzed. A third party driver has been identified to be causing system crashes on your computer. It is strongly suggested that you check for updates for these drivers on their company websites. Click on the links below to search with Google for updates for these drivers:

nv4_disp.dll (NVIDIA Windows XP Display driver, Version 280.26 , NVIDIA Corporation)

If no updates for these drivers are available, try searching with Google on the names of these drivers in combination the errors that have been reported for these drivers and include the brand and model name of your computer as well in the query. This often yields interesting results from discussions from users who have been experiencing similar problems.


Read the topic general suggestions for troubleshooting system crashes for more information.

Note that it's not always possible to state with certainty whether a reported driver is actually responsible for crashing your system or that the root cause is in another module. Nonetheless it's suggested you look for updates for the products that these drivers belong to and regularly visit Windows update or enable automatic updates for Windows. In case a piece of malfunctioning hardware is causing trouble, a search with Google on the bug check errors together with the model name and brand of your computer may help you investigate this further.

That Packard Bell imedia MC2470 is a desktop.
Does the monitor connect on what is known as the I/O plate at the back of the computer near to the mouse and keyboard and the LAN connector or does it connected on a separate panel further down.
This will identify if it is integrated graphics or a separate card.

Please also have a look at the computer case or any documentation you have and identify if possible the Packard Bell reference for that Imedia as on the PB website the imedia models are listed by the PB code most they seem to be P ---- for example see here
http://www.packardbe...ontent/download

we need to find the correct driver.
Have you used any driver sites that purport to recommend driver updates. they frequently offer the wrong one.
If it is integrated graphics we need the driver from Packard Bell NOT the driver for the separate card.
It is clear from the Who Crashed log that the problem has exisited at least from the 17 August

Sorry i could not get back last night, had to go to work.I have did what you said with the graphics driver, it was prompting me to upgrade to a newer version 280.26 i think, will not do it for a while until i have tried out this version.As the BSOD only happens now and again and not with a certain program it is to early to say if it is fixed.As for your question #6, the monitor cable is separate, plugs into the graphics card at the bottom of the desktop, all i can find regarding the ID it says on the label on the side - :) Packard bell edition 2005.I will get back later this week with an update for you. A BIG THANK TO YOU FOR GETTING BACK SO SOON AND HELPING ME WITH THE PROBLEM. :yes:

Thank you for replying.

Do not worry about leaving the issue, obviously WORK comes before this.
If we work together again, please see this that was on my first post

Firstly, may I ask that if due to your commitments, apart from dealing with this problem, you have to leave the matter for the time being would you please post that you are doing so.
I will do the same for you.
That saves either of us waiting for a reply that is not going to arrive.
I do not mean of course a temporary break while you are away for an hour or so, but if you leave it for today.


It makes the process of helping you, so much smoother for both of use.

It will offer the update 280.26 but if the system is working OK with the one I sent you, I recommend you do NOT change to the latest, that was only released on the 9 August this year.
That of course is co-terminus with your problems.
There were no major changes in 280.26 that are likely to effect you.

There have been quite a few posts reporting problems with BSOD on that 280.26 driver on XP. It is VERY UNLIKELY from a company like Nvidia that there is anything wrong with the driver. It is 99.99% certain that it was the download or installation of the driver that was the cause of the error, or another program or utility running on the computer. Anti-virus programs can interfere with the downloading and installation of drivers - just to provide one example.

IF you do have any problems you only need to post back and we are ready to help.
As the graphics card is separate that is the correct driver.
If the graphics were integrated on the motherboard then the correct driver would be the one from Packard Bell.

Good luck.

Thanks.
Will wait to hear from you.

Your response is appreciated.
You would be amazed how many people post asking for help and then do not even bother to reply in the first instance, or just leave the issue after a couple of posts.

Regards
