Leading up to my problem: The other day I replaced my integrated nVidia GeForce 6150LE with the nVidia GeForce 9500 GT. Installed the drivers, got it working, everything was very pretty. I installed a couple new games, Neo Steam and World of Kung Fu. Both games patched, fully launched, and ran just fine. (I'm hoping the card has nothing to so with the issue at hand)

This morning I boot up and when I launch Neo Steam I get the blue screen of death. Windows Error Reporting says:

Malware alert: Problem caused by XDVAnnn.sys, which might be malware

Your computer experienced a problem that was caused by XDVAnnn.sys.


So I scanned my system with AVG Free and it's clean. Googling around I learn that the problem is (apparently) caused by Xtrap, which Neo Steam uses. Xtrap appears to be one of those anti-hacking guards for games. I uninstalled Neo Steam when I couldn't find a solution. However, the problem still persists. World of Kung Fu causes a BSOD during launch but it doesn't seem to use Xtrap. I tried launching Atlantica Online and it ran like normal.

I also got an Error Report about my drivers, so I reinstalled my nVidia drivers. And then I got a Corrupted error report. :thumbsup:

Is this a solvable problem? I'll be happy to provide whatever information is needed.

Thanks in advanced.

EDIT: Combat Arms causes the BSOD as well. However, Windows Error Reporting says it is a problem with the Video Driver. Which is weird, because I managed to play Combat Arms, Neo Steam, World of Kung Fu, etc... With the new graphics card.

Did you uninstall the drivers to the old card, before putting the new card in your system and installing the drivers for it?

Yes I did.

I find the strangest thing is that everything worked fine, all the games, with the new card. But suddenly they don't now.

Have you disabled your integrated graphics in device manager?

Run memtest overnight to see if your ram is bad http://memtest.org/ .

My old Dell had integrated graphics that I could play older games on, but once I got a graphics card, my computer started crashing while gaming. It turns out my ram was bad, but only caused my graphics card to crash my computer, not my previous integrated graphics.
