Hello...I need some serious help.....My specs are Toshiba Qosmio G10 laptop running Win XP Media Center edition SP2 with Intel Pentium M 1.8ghz 1GB RAM, 100 GB HDD (2 drives, 60:40). I regularly download music for itunes using bittorrent sites and have approx 20 GB of music on my laptop.
Last night I watched a movie on a pirated DVD borrowed from a friend. If the following problem could possible be due to the DVD, pls let me know as this is the first time I watched a pirated DVD on my laptop and I am sooooo very angry at myself if this is the case.
I left AVG anitivirus running afterwards and went to sleep.
When I woke up, the blue screen was on and mentioned that there had been an error in the NVP_DISP.DLL file and a physical dump had to be executed. The computer waited until I woke up. Each time I rebooted the system went to the blue screen and had to be rebooted. I started it in Safe mode and eventually figured that I had to disable the display adapter which I did from the Safe mode in the Device Manager. Thereafter I am able to start but I have white vertical lines in sort of pairs in the beginning as well as in the Win XP logo (full screen lines) when the system reboots. I can see these lines on the desktop as well.
After disabling the display adapter, when Windows discovers new hardware, then it is unable to find the drivers. I also downloaded the uptodate driver of Nvidia from www.toshiba/ca/support website. And as soon as I enable the display adapter, the blue screen immediately comes on and physical dump starts and I have to hard boot and upon restart the display adapter is again disabled (guess the system is unable to remember it since the system hangs/goes to the blue screen).
The laptop starts but the video is slow (perhaps due to Nvidia Adapter having been disabled?...is that right???)....In the IE, the page up/down keys move the screen slowly than ever before.
This is the first time I have had such a major problem since Jan 05 when I bought this machine. I did get some crazy phone dialer virus in Mar/Apr 05 though.
I hope someone can help me fix this as I am very concerned and have been working at it continuosly for the past 5 hours....
Thank you in advance.
