This apparently came out of the blue, but many people use this computer and it goes a lot of places on the net.

I just finished getting a speech recognition software to work when I told the computer to double click on a movie file. the screen immediately turned into a pixelated multicolor pattern, the screen flickered, and then it crashed. Now whenever I boot up, i enter the password, the same flickering screen with the colorful pixel pattern shows up. The computer is unresponsive. I was able to start up in safe mode, and run HJT and get a log.

I did run the Microsoft malicious software removal tool, it found something deleted it, but the problem still persists. I have now just removed my graphics card drivers, I was able to boot up in normal mode, but when I re-install them I still get the same problem. :huh:

I am in dire need of help.

UPDATE!
for some reason it randomly worked, and i was able to log in, a box appeared saying, "windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown."
it created a dump file.
and gave me some code.
here it is:
Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.0.6002.2.2.0.256.1
Locale ID: 1033

Additional information about the problem:

BCP4: 0000000000000800
OS Version: 6_0_6002

EDIT: Temporarily removed HJT log ~ Hamluis.

I temporarily removed your HJT log, since such is not to be posted in the Vista forum. At this point, your issues seem unrelated to malware, IMO.

Let's try the following:

Download/install BlueScreenView, http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html.

Double-click BlueScreenView.exe file.

When scanning is done, Edit/Select All...then File/Save Selected Items. Save the report as BSOD.txt.

Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content, and paste it into your next reply.

It sounds like your graphics card is dying...

But let's rule out drivers first. What is the exact model of your graphics card?

Hi,

I'm picking up where KN left off he is been in and out lately, so here is your link to your driver download page: http://www.nvidia.com/object/win7_winvista...97.45_whql.html Go there download the driver and then Uninstall the current drivers that are on your system and restart then install the downloaded drivers. :huh:

so yes it started happening again. sometimes as soon a widows starts up, sometimes when a game starts, sometimes when i play a video etc.

not sure if this is related, but some time ago this window used to pop up saying "windows requires a digitally signed driver" and then it said the nvidia display driver was not digitally signed

Driver detective now says my G-card driver is out of date. but the driver it is downloading is 197.13 not 197.45 so Im confused.
if you want to install a new driver, should you remove the old one first?
if so, how do i prevent windows from automatically installing the device's driver without asking me?

changing the drivers didn't help Im still getting this problem. It only happens if I run a video game now.

If i get the error, and I shut down my computer for 10 sec then boot it back up again, I will never crash no matter what I try to do. but If I shut down, and leave for a few hours and come back I get a crash again. It seems to me to be a software issue rather than a hardware issue.
