View Full Version : Serious error?!

I woke this morning to find my PC had restarted during the night. I had left it downloading from an FTP site (the monitor was switched off).

I run XP Pro, 1600+ XP CPU, GeForce2 64MB video... btw.

After logging on I was told my PC had restarted and had recovered from a serious error that was probably caused by my video card. It recommended checking for a new driver and mentioned something about it's ability to page? (woops, should've wrote that down).

The Event Viewer log tells me this:

The driver nv4_disp for the display device \Device\Video0 got stuck in an infinite loop. This usually indicates a problem with the device itself or with the device driver programming the hardware incorrectly. Please check with your hardware device vendor for any driver updates.

This sort of error seems not uncommon. I had similar experiences and tracked down XP revised video card dvrs and since I installed them I have had no more crashes(touch wood!).

Ok, thanks. It happened again last night. This time there was no error messages or anything to indicate an error in the Event Viewer.
