My computer wont start up like normal. A blue screen appears and gives this message: "A problem has been detected and windows has been shutdown to prevent damage to your computer.

The problem seems to be caused by the following file nv4_disp.

he device driver got stuck in an infinite loop. THis usually indicates problem with the device driver itself or with the device driver programming the hardware incorrectly.

Please check with your hardware device driver vendor for any diver updates.

Techinal information:
*** STOP: OxOOOOOOEA (Ox82CA4838, Ox82P4O4OO, OxF8AEDCBC, OxOOOOOOO1)" end message

Im not sure this is a problem with a virus or whatever. Im not very computer savvy. Any help you can give me to fix this would be great.

your video driver is corrupt and needs to be replaced

I'm moving this to the Internal Hardware forum
