Currently anytime I try to play a dvd in windows media player I get a Blue screen. If I use another player for dvd playback I have no issues. On the blue screen that comes up it says stop 0x000008e and also mentions nv4 disp.dll. In my system I have an 8800gt video card. Any other questions to help with my problem please ask.

Thanks,
Jeff

Thats your graphics card driver.

Do you have XP or Vista?

Install this:
VISTA: http://www.nvidia.com/object/winvista_x86_169.25_whql.html
XP: http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_169.21_whql.html

I am using XP. I have that driver installed currently. I even booted in safe mode, uninstalled the driver and reinstalled again. Same thing keeps happening. I don't know if more info helps at all. I have a hp d4100y desktop that I upgraded with a power supply, 4gb of ram, and the video card.

That error is caused by bad ram. I want to see if this works:
Lets stress test your system
  • Please download Prime95, and save it to your desktop.
  • Double click the file you just downloaded.
  • Follow the onscreen instructions to install Prime95.
  • After installation, Prime95 will open.
  • If asked to join GIMPS, select "Just Stress Testing".
  • Go to Options -> Torture Test.
  • Make sure the "Blend" radio button is selected, and press ok.
This test will stress test your systems CPU, system bus, and RAM.
This test runs forever if uninterupted. Please let the test run for between 6 and 24 hours. (overnight is best)
For more information on Prime95, see this article.
When the test is complete, post a reply here with any errors encountered, if any!

Ok I ran Prime95 overnight (It was about 7 hours). It showed 0 errors and 0 warnings.

Alright, that rules out most any hardware problem.

Anyone here know how to read minidumps?
