I am back with another issue. When watching Flash videos my computer will occasionally freeze for about 10 seconds and then the screen with change to a weird resolution along with artifacting. An error message will pop up saying "nv4_disp driver has stopped working, please reboot computer." I have the lastest Nvidia driver so that is not the issue. Any help would be appreciated.

Uninstall the nVidia driver, then reinstall a freshly downloaded copy of the latest nVidia driver for your system.

If the error persists, then try these free hardware diagnostics (start with the video tests):  http://www.carrona.org/hwdiag.html

 

Also, please do the following:
- open Event Viewer (run eventvwr.msc from the "Run" dialog)
- expand the Custom Views category (left click on the > next to the words "Custom Views")
- right click on Administrative Events
- select "Save all Events in Custom View as..."
- save the file as Admin.evtx
- zip up the file (right click on it, select "Send to", select "Compressed (zipped) folder")
- upload it with your next post (if it's too big, then upload it to a free file-hosting service and post a link here).

FYI - If we're looking for Event ID 41 errors (unexplained shutdowns), there's more info on that here:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2028504

I uninstalled Nvidia Control Panel and Drivers, then reinstalled the latest one and it seems to have fixed the problem. Give me a bit and I will post the logs.

I had to do it a bit differently because I am still on XP. This still has all the nvidia event logs on it.

I ran the GPU hardware FurWare test. It got up to 87C during the test. The error only occurs while watching on Twitch.tv and the temps stayed about around 50C while watching. So I dont think overheating is the problem.

Did it stabilize at 87 or was it still rising?  That temp is on the border of being a problem.
It sounds like a problem with the video card or it's cooling.

 

Check to make sure that the GPU cooler is clean and free of dirt/dust/etc

Make sure that the fan is working.  Make sure that cool air is getting to the cooler.

It stabilized at 87. I cleaned it out and the fan works. Its weird though because it never goes above like 45-50 when I play games or watch videos/streams.

Yeah I am watching a stream on Twitch right now and its at 36C. The driver only stops when I am watching streams on Twitch too. Its really weird. It only happened one time today earlier. It seemed to be doing well the rest of the day and right now.

If it continues, I'd see about trying another video card.

I haven't worked with XP in a long, long time - so you may want to post over in the XP forums for another opinion.

Good luck!
