BSOD nv4_disp.dll

By dazeboy79 ·
I have just started a new job and my pc keeps crapping out, all of a sudden, it will just stop working... cannot get to task manager or anywhere. It just stops at random times. I am using a dell dimension 8300 running xp with what I believe is an aftermarket Nvidia card but not sure. A couple of times b4 when I got a BSOD it had a message for nv4_disp.dll. I have been reading up on this problem and it seems pretty common. Well I have tried most of what I have read about as far as fixes. I have tried updating drivers, I have disabled and went back to the basic windows video controller, all to none avail. I hate to reformat bcuz I have work that needs to be done yesterday!! I'm wondering if anyone else has had this problem and successfully solved it? Please help!

Also, I have upgraded the RAM to 2GB recently. I was having the problem b4, just not nearly as often. Could this have something to do with it? I took out all of the old RAM and replaced it with new so the brand would all be the same. Should I have left one stick?? Would that have anything to do with this issue??


Frustrated xp user!

Go to the Nvidia site and download the Latest NVidia Drivers.

Resart the PC in Safe Mode. Navigate to Device Manager and uninstall the Video Driver. Navigate to C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers and delete this file "nv4_mini.sys"

You should be able to start normally, if not restart in Safe Mode and install the new drivers.
