I might need Geek Squad for this help but first i want to see whats wrong with it here.

This is my computer
AMD Athlon 64 Processor
2.2 GHz
1600 MHz FSB
nVIDIA GeForce 6100

Ok now to get that out of the way. I've been having some troubles for about two weeks now. When i try to turn on the CPU it starts, but the screen never turns on, but the CPU is still turned on. So i have to turn it off, after that i turn on the CPU again and this time the monitor turns on, but now all my games are unplayable because the frame rate goes dramatically down (very choppy)

Right now i used the recovery CDs and when it started this thing pop up

A problem has been detected and windows has shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

The problem seems to be caused by the following file: nv4_disP

If this is the first time youv'e seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

The device got stuck in an infinate loop. This indicates problem with the device itself or with the device driver programming the hardware incorrectly,
Please check your hardware device vender for any driver updates



What do i do?

I suspect that this is the error that you've received: http://aumha.org/a/stop.php#0xea
Updating the nVidia display drivers (as Monty007 pointed out) is the most likely solution.

I choose Media Center, but it says that a config file is damaged or corrupt so i choose default. then i do what the guy tells me to do. i remove the drivers and all that. I put the newer ones and it says to restart, but it doest't so im forced to press the button on the CPU. After that everything is choppy and slow..

Ok can you boot into XP with out going into safe mode? If you can go Nvidia down laod the latest drivers but b4 you install uninstall the old drivers first. If you can only boot into safe mode see if you can go on a working PC, download the drivers onto a flash drive and then install them on your PC.

Better yet, burn the drivers to a CD and label the disc with a permanent marker. Put the disc in a safe place and you will always have them in the future should you need them.
