Hello I keep getting the blue screen of death everytime I play any kind of video games. It doesn't matter if there on the internet or downlaods. I kind of had a feeling it has to do with my video card but I'm not sure what to do. This has been happening for awhile and I have tried everything. This last time it said nv4_dsp.dll error and I located it in my files so it's not missing. I'm not sure what to do can someone please give some suggestions.

Hi -

nv4_dsp.dll is a process that belongs to the drivers for Nvidia graphics card and other graphics card with similar properties. There are a number of different versions of the file available and most problems are commonly associated with having an old or incorrect version of the dll file installed on your system.

After looking around a bit I found This Page with hints on your Vid Card - This seems to be the problem -
Check that all drivers are updated (not always easy) as some will not show up as outdated -
Use the makers site to look for your current video card driver -
Thank You -
You have not listed it but I am thinking it is a NVIDIA video card -
Please check in Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager - It is listed under Display adapters -
