Ok, so heres how it is. I upgraded my monitor happily to a 19" Widescreen LCD and the picture was good and I was very happy. But whenever I try to run a game my computer just freezes and then gets a BSOD saying nv4_disp.dll as the problem. THIS SHOULDNT HAPPEN ITS A ****ING MONITOR!!!!!!!:mad:. Can someone please help me with this. It is a samsung SyncMaster 941BW. I know the monitor is not defective so I'm not sure what the problem is. I tried a couple different drivers and no luck. My computer is perfectly fine at the desktop. Oh and sometimes the games ran but nothing came up just a black screen but I heard the music playing. I called the support and asked about this and i told him i was using reforce, a utility that locks refresh rates in your registry. He said to delete it completely and leave 60hz as the refresh rate. After i deleted it then came the problem with freezing and the BSOD's. This is really annoying me and I would like to be able to fix this problem and enjoy it. Thanks

Have you tried rolling back your OS to the point just before it started happening?

Also which nvidia drivers are you using? I wouldn't bother with the most recent sets for a 6 series card unless there is a specific fix you need.

Try disabling AGP fast writes in your bios, this seems to be a common fix for that problem.

If that doesn't work, re-install the last set of drivers that worked good for your card.

Another fix I found on google said to load bios optimised defaults and to not change the memory timings at all, I've never used that one so I can't vouch for it. GL with it!

Thanks alot man. Appreiciate it, I used rivatuner to force disable agp fastwrites and i had no luck with that. I havent changed any of the timings in my ram either. Any other suggestions thanks. Also whenever i launch certain applications like internet explorer or steam the same problem also occurs. The mouse freezes and then blue screen.

I hate to ask a really silly question, but have you tried your old monitor again?

Other than that it almost sounds like an overheating proc or a dying psu.

Thanks No, actually i havent. I know it's not my processor or my power supply becuase this only started happening when I changed the monitor. For some really annoying reason, my computer is so sensitive to hard ware changes and if you change one little thing it goes crazy. It's gotta be a driver conflict. Because whenever i boot it up in safe mode it runs fine and there are no problems. I should double check on this though. I am gonna try reinstalling all of my drivers. Thanks for reply.

Do you really have to install monitor drivers?

No. not at all. From what I understand, all installing monitor drivers does is change the entry in device manager from "generic PnP monitor" to "whatever the monitor is" (Dell 2407WFP in my case).

Thanks alot guys i finally fixed it. I reseated my video card, cleared my cmos and reseated my ram. Then reinstalled all drivers that came with my hardware and then it worked fine. Very happy:) I love this monitor.

BTW: Einstein is awesome.

I guess when you removed the vga cable from the Graphics card and plug in a new one, must of some how dislodged the graphics card a bit.

Glad to hear everything is working. Those slots are so fidgety sometimes.
