Hi -

I received the nv4_disp message on my Dell computer. It's not used very much since it's in the basement but would like to have the kids use it. How do I go past the nv4_disp screen? I know that the computer is working since it runs our wireless network.

I can't open the website, tried it from 2 different computers.
I have an old Alienware, see below

Can't pinpoint what triggered it but I tried opening a video file and the system crashed, giving me the BSOD saying infinite loop etc for nv4_disp. They do mention in the BSOD that it might be a hardware issue.

I've tried in safe mode uninstalling and installing the driver, several versions that I had and worked in the past, none of them is effective.

Basically, is this a hardware issue, the card is cooked and I need to get a new one, or is this software? Most sites on the internet seem to think it's software... Can anyone post the webpage from christopherjason so I can read it?

Thx! How can I can check if it's hardware problem? There is mention on that posting as well to check the card, specifically the capacitators..
