My old computer is experiencing the nv_disp.dll error and the solution to that is to install the most recent graphic drivers, however whenever i try installing one it says that setup can't work because there is no nvidia graphics card to update.
My computer has a built-in graphics card and i am looking to solve this problem without having to do an overhaul.

Manufacturer: Http://www.abit.com.tw/
Model: AN7 (nVidia-nForce2)
CPU: AMD athlon*tm XP 2800+

it is a nvidia Geforce fx 5200 graphics card if that helps any.

Hmm...not according to the specs for that motherboard as a standalone item. The nvidia FX 5200 is an AGP card which is installed in AGP slot (I have one sitting idly in my apartment).

It's possible that you are trying to install incorrect drivers.

The correct drivers appear to be at http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_175.19_whql.html.

I suggest uninstalling your current video drivers, using Device Manager...then rebooting and trying the ones I linked to above.

i did so, and now my computer is refusing to boot up, it stops at the AMD screen where i am offered two choices, i can press delete to go to setup or tab to ....do a really long check that eventually boots up windows. however, after trying two keyboards it appears that i can't do anything at this screen and it doesn't proceed on it's own.

Bad computer.

FWIW: There's a difference between a system which "refused to boot" and one which boots slowly.

What is this "check" that you casually mention? What appears onscreen?

i had the same problem. i started in safe mode with networking, un-installed NVIDIA drivers re-started in safe mode with networking, downloaded the new display driver, re-started in safe mode, downloaded driver package (and note its location) until everything was un-zipped then cancel set-up. Open device manager go to display adapter properties and click update driver. Browse to the location where driver package was downloaded, click find driver software at this location, wait till it installs, then restart computer. I have no idea why this worked (after 2 months of pulling my hair out) but it did.

Tab is the POST screen which shows memory testing and after memory testing is complete proceeds to boot, apparently the keyboard error resolved itself as i can boot properly now.

im still working on this problem if anyone is willing to help.

Although the monitor no longer flickers off/shuts down, the screen is significantly slower in loading things like desktop items and tracking motion on screen.
