For the last month or so my computer screen has been going black while online, and in the past couple of
weeks the monitor has going into standby mode almost as soon as the computer boots. It doesn't happen
every time but on several occasions I've had to turn off and restart it manually, sometimes multiple
times before I can get the monitor to stay on.
Yesterday I got lucky and managed to get the screen back by shuffling the mouse around. However, it was
the blue screen of death instead of my desktop. It said the nv4_disp file was in an infinite loop.
I looked around for fixes and ended up updating the drivers for the GeForce FX5500 video card last night.
Today at startup the mouse stuck on the welcome screen so I had to manually restart and the screen almost
went black once.
Any help in fixing nv4_disp is much appreciated. Thank you.
