hi, i don't know if i should post in the nvidia place or the pc game place, but its regarding my video card and its my nvidia, but its a game called guild wars, so yah, <br />
<br />
<br />
well, anyways, heres my problem everytime i play guild wars, ONLY GUILD WARS! well other games i have probllems like diablo2 always getting unhandled exception only when playing window mode, but anyways when i play guild wars, my computer would all of sudden restart. it really pisses me off, i tried looking it up, and ppl said its heating problems, so i opened up my computer, and dust blew everything, now the inside is all clean, but then when i play guild wars, i notice there is even MORE restarting, like it happens every 25 seconds or around, somtimes faster or longer! it really pisses me off! does anyone know what to do? i did that thing that shows the blue screen if it helps <br />
<br />

<br />
its something about nv4.disp.dll or something like that, im guessing thats video card, but seriously, ive restinall drivers, did the cleaning thing for old driver files many times! i use that nasty file remover or w/e NFR or soemthing like that, and this nv4 always shows up again when i remove everything and do the check again, so any nvidia pros here know how to do this or deal with this?<br />
<br />
<br />
comp specs:<br />
<br />
-Pentium 4 SP2 3.2ghz<br />
-1.5 gig of ram, i have 4 slots, first 2 slots have 2x 512s and the other 2 slots have 2x 256s<br />

<br />

That error is usually caused by 2 things.. Your drivers are not compatible with the game or you have a faulty video card. I would try alot of different drivers and hope one works.. If they all give you that error then try your video card in a diff computer.. Its probably a bad card.. You could also try another card in your system..gl with it..

That is definately a bad driver or card.. What I would do, if you haven't already, is to download the tool Driver Cleaner Pro (search google) and install it. The uninistall all nVidia drivers listed in Add or Remove Programs and when prompted reboot. Upon rebooting enter Safe Mode and then run Driver Cleaner specifying `nvidia` a few times to clear out all remnants of the nVidia drivers (the actual Remove Program leaves many traces of files and registry) then reboot into regular mode and re-install the latest drivers and test. <br />
<br />
I've had problems with nVidia drivers like this in the past and now always do the above procedure upon updating or re-installation and have never now once had an issue.<br />
<br />
It could also very well be a bad card or the memory on the card the drivers are trying to access upon launching the game. If the above does not solve your issue I would try another card if possible to finger or rule out the suspect card.

whats the different with using the driver cleaner pro in safe mode and non safe mode???? Everytime i run that nasy file remove "NFR" or w/e its called, which is a thing that removes the nvidia files after uninstalling, nv4.dsp.dll is always there, and everytime i delete it, and run check again, it comes back. Does going on safe mode, actually removes it and doesn't come back??

I've done it in normal mode, and it works. I have that board too, you'll definately NOT want totry sticking your card into the white slots....its a different bus. It has nothing to do with the slots, its a driver problem, or a card problem. So, basically waht you wanna do, is find another board with an AGP port that looks like yours on your board...and pop it in.

Yes it actually removes it. I've used various cleaners over the years and Driver Cleaner Pro does the best job IMO. The reason for safe mode is what you've experienced. Even with DCP I've had old nv4_disp.dll drivers stick around.. In Safe Mode it's always removed them thus starting an equal playing field which I believe you need to be in..
