Default Blue Screen of Death


Hi,

I've just bought a new system and have been having problems with it
from the start. First i used to get BSOD nv4_disp.dll problems while
playing BF2, after installing everything from scratch and installing
the lastest Chipset and GPU drivers the problem went away for a couple
of days. Now while just surfing the net i get BSOD
MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION error atleast 4/5 times a day.

What tests can i run to see whats causing the errors, to see if its
software or hardware related.

This used to be the nv4_disp.dll error page...

"The problem seems to be caused by the following file: nv4_disp.dll

The device driver got stuck in an infinite loop. This usually indicates
problem with the device itself or with the device driver programming the
hardware correctly.

The techincal information:
***STOP: 0x000000EA (0x89C184FD, 0x89188C78, 0xBACDBCBC, 0x00000001)"

OR

"Technical Information:

***STOP: 0x0000007E (0xC0000005, 0xBFA96D75, 0xB3FBBC40, 0xB3FBB93C)

***nv4_disp.dll - Address BFA96D75 base BF9D4000, Datestamp 437518bb"


This is the new BSOD error...

"MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION

Technical Information:

***STOP: 0x0000009C (0x00000004, 0x8054D5F0, 0xB2000000, 0x00070F0F)"


System info
AMD64 Dual Core 4200
ASUS A8N-SLI
2GB Cosair RAM
300GB Maxtor SATA HD
Nvidia GeForce 256MB 7800 GTX
WindowsXP Pro SP2 x32bit

Are you doing any overclocking? If so, remove it and try again.
Try reducing the speed of your memory
Try memtest86 and/or prime95 torture test.

Memory speed is controlled in the BIOS. However before you start to play
with the memory settings run Memtest86+ (not the +, there are two versions
the + version has a better understanding of A64 systems).

I ran memtest86+, it went on for 2hrs and 40 mins before i stopped it.
The first time it ran it got stuck before the blue test screen! At the
second attempt, in the 2 hrs and 40 mins i got 3 passes and 0 errors,
does that mean my memory is ok?
