I have a PowerSPec (MicroCenter house brand) PC that I recently had a hard drive crash. I took out the offending drive, installed a new one, and reloaded XP.

The PC works fine, and I've installed several pieces of software that also function correctly.

The issue I have is when playing any video. The screen will halt, the mouse freezes, and then Windows shuts down. It happens every time.

When the PC reboots, the error reporting feature of Windows tell me this:

Error caused by NVIDIA Graphics Driver: no specific solution found

Thank you for submitting an error report.

Problem description

An unknown error occurred in NVIDIA Graphics Driver, created by NVIDIAŽ Corporation.


NVIDIAŽ Corporation is currently not aware of a specific solution for the problem that you reported. Below is a list of recommendations to take that may help prevent the problem from recurring.

I looked for the video drivers from the nvidia site, and it said i already had the lastest. I rebooted and still experienced the problem.

I reloaded the drivers again anyway. Thuis did not resolve the problem.

I can not seem to make ANY other event cause the problem, other than playing video.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

Download the drivers that 1972 vet suggested. Then go to Add/Remove programs and uninstall the nVidia drivers from there. Then install the one's that you've downloaded.

Sometimes even this isn't enough and you'll have to use a Driver Cleaner to get rid of the traces. Let us know and I'll find my list of driver removal tools.

If the newest updated drivers do not solve the problem try rolling back to an older one.
