Hello, everyone.

Well, I am in real strife. I am asking for help as a last resort because I just can't solve my problem alone.

My problem started a couple of days ago, and I cannot use my computer at all in normal start-up mode.

The error that is reported in the event viewer is in the title of this thread. The description accompanying the error message follows:

The following boot start or system-start driver(s) failed to load:
AmdK8
AvgLdx86
AvgMfx86
Fips


In addition I am getting a blue screen STOP error 0x000000EA when I reboot normally. It reports that the problem file is nv4_disp.

I should add that I had this exact same problem a year or two ago. The solution at that time was as simple as changing some setting (or perhaps a single registry value - I can't remember). I found that solution on the Internet somewhere, and I have spent around 12 hours trying to find wherever I found it last time. My point in saying this is that, on that occasion, there was nothing wrong with my video card/display adapter (NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT) as many of the threads on the Internet regarding this problem suggest.

Can anyone please help?

Hello and Welcome to Bleeping Computer,
Have you updated you driver recently? Also can I have your OS. I also need to know if you are using a 64 or 32 bit version.

Thanks

Hi, Weatherman. Thanks for the reply.

Actually, I tried updating the driver (NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT) from the NVIDIA website, but the installation failed for some reason. Then I just reinstalled the old driver from disk.

In any case, the driver was not the problem last time. Assuming the cause is the same this time, there is no problem with my card or driver.

I am running XP. I'm not sure about your other question, but in the Device Manager, the processor is named AMD Athlon ™ 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4800+. Does that help?

Well, this is embarrassing. It would have been much easier to slip away unnoticed with my tail between my legs, but I figured you deserve to laugh at me after trying to help.

I recently moved house. During the move my computer must have received a bit of vibration somewhere along the line and eased the contacts between the card and the slot a little. In the end all I had to do was put a bit of pressure on the card to reseat it (no discernible movement, mind you).

Problem solved!

Thanks for your help.
