My friend has an error on his computer where the screen goes blue and some white writing comes up with the words in it:

"Error has occured in Nv4_disp"

The mouse moves, the music carries on but keeps on looping. In other words, the computer crashes. This sometimes happens when he plays Guild Wars or when his mum opens up her e-mails. I have a feeling that it is because of his graphics card messing up and I have told him to re-download the driver (he will do that asap).

However, I have a feeling I am wrong, is anyone on here able to help me figure out this problem?

Thanks =D

This is typically the video drivers for the system - so that's the correct approach.

Usually a simple installation will fix the problem. But more severe issues may require an uninstall of the current drivers, then an installation of the most updated drivers. More stubborn problems may require the use of a specialized driver removal tool.

All this having been said - it may be something else entirely. But this is the place to start.

I agree with usasma, what I was able to find on that error is that it is related to Gforce graphics cards or graphic cards using the same drivers. In all of the cases that I read a simple update of the dirvers solved the problem. One thing that was mentioned that I might add is that in some cases the new drivers reset the resolution, so be prepared for that and recognize it for what it is.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
