    I have the same problem, please help!!!



  • GreenWash Jun 20, 2008

    Yep, same problem I suspect. Running WinXP/SP2 on HP Pavilion ZD8001AP with Radeon Mobility X600 .. .. screen goes white after displaying the Windows XP logo. Workaround (use native VGA resolution, but looks rubbish) is to use F10, boot safe-mode, disable video driver & reboot. Worked properly for many years, but suddenly went bad like this in last few months.

    Any ideas gratefully rec'd.

The fix starts by first doing a "deep uninstall" of all ati drivers and programs present in the affected computer computer, remember to remove al ati related programs from control panel's add remove utility, including the whole multimedia center. And finally reinstalling the new drivers (you will need to do this at native vga mode).

You should have downloaded the most recent catalyst drivers from ati or the manufacturer of your pc.

Now proceed with the "deep uninstall" following this directions, taken from somewhere on the internet, thanks to the one who wrote them...

1. Go into the Control Panel and under the ADD/REMOVE SOFTWARE icon uninstall the ATI Multimedia software and/or the ATI DVD software.
2. Uninstall the ATI drivers also found in the Add/Remove section. Once removed, it will prompt you to reboot....do so.
3. When returning to windows, the NEW HARDWARE FOUND wizard will come up and will tell you that it has found a new VGA card and will prompt you for drivers. Hit CANCEL!
4. Now, go to START - SEARCH - FOR FILES OR FOLDERS and do a search for all files and folders using the filename ati*.*
This search will normally give you 3 to 4 files found in your c:/windows directory and subdirectories (including the Windows/System directory). Select these files and erase them. Now go to your Recycle Bin and Empty your bin.

5. Next...time to go to your Registry. Go to START -- RUN -- regedit
Here go to key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -- SYSTEM -- ControlSet001 -- Control -- Video . Here there should be 4 entries. 3 of them are default Windows XP entries and the 4th one is put in by the ATI drivers. Expand each one by one until you see ATI entries. Once found, erase the entire key.
Now repeat the same step above for the ControlSet002 key and the CurrentControlSet Key. Normally, whenever you erase a key in the ControlSet001, XP automatically deletes it in the CurrentControlSet section too. So if the ATI key is not found in the CurrentControlSet section, don't worry about it.
Once all keys are deleted, proceed to the next step.

6. While still in the registry, go to the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -- SOFTWARE section. Here you should find an ATI Technologies key. Select it and delete it. In that same section, look for an Installed Options key. Expand it and there you should find another ATI Technologies key. Select it and erase it.
7. Still in the registry, go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER -- Software and there you should find another ATI technologies key. Select it and erase it. Once all this is done, close the registry. the registry is now clean. Though you might want to even run a registry cleaner, like the one included in the freeware program CCLEANER, it's very good, can be undone and it's safe enough to use it almost blindly.
8. Close all windows and reboot.
9. When in windows after the reboot the NEW HARDWARE FOUND WIZARD will pop up again. Cancel that. Now find the new ATI drivers that you have downloaded and extracted and run the SETUP file. Once complete, reboot and you are DONE!

This error comes usually when there is problem in software or driver compatibility issue with hardware or operating system.
Also this error comes when there is bed indexing unit in hard drive.
You can solve this errors with following 2 methods.
(1)When you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in safe mode.
Then if you are able to enter in safe mode then uninstall driver or software which you installed recently and face this error.
(2)If you are not able to enter in safe mode Then you need to fix error on hard drive.For that you need windows disk or recovery disk.
Boot your computer with that disk
For that when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 "del" key to enter in bios.
Then go to boot menu and set first boot device as your cd or dvd rom.
Then save settings and exit bios.
Insert windows disk in cd /dvd rom.
Then it boot with that disk.Then you get this message "Press any key to boot from cd.."
Then press any key.
Then follow the procedure then enter in recovery console mode then type in prompt "chkdsk /r"
Then type "y"
Then it fix error on hard drive.
Then check if again you are not able to enter in windows then boot again and this time choose "R" option for repair previous windows " then it repairs old windows then it loads again old windows.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Have dell xps 600 when playing game screen goes black,when l restart my computer this message:problem file nv4_disp the device driver got stuck in an infinite loop.Can this be fixed?


The problem is probably to do with your video card especially as it only happens when you are playing a game.

It may be to do with a corrupt driver or a actual hardware problem with your video card. I found a news group article here that talks about similar problems and several solutions that worked for them. Apparently there is more than one thing that can cause this error.

I did a google search on this "nv4_disp the device driver got stuck in an infinite loop" with out the quotes and found heaps of information. Looks like you might need to read up a bit.

One other thing you might want to check. It may be heat related. Make sure all your case fans are working. There may also be a fan directly on the video board.

Hope this helps

You should go to ATI's website, look up the video card you have, and download the newest software drivers for it. Video drivers can often cause blue screens and system errors when using an old version of the software.

Go to this website:
http://www.amd.com/us/Pages/AMDHomePage.aspx

When you get there, in the upper right hand corner there's a download section for software drivers. If you follow the menu, it will allow you to download the newest software for your video card. Good luck!

Psu and graphic card


Starting from top to bottom:
Yes, your PSU is able to run the card, depending on what other hardware you have also makes a deference in the power required to be supplied by the PSU

The 7950GT 512MB needs a minimum of a 350w PSU, but NVIDIA recommends a 400w or higher for optimal performance of the card

On the problems side:

The green and purple stripes can be created by a number of problems, but the most common is faulty hardware

The screen being pixilated can be 3 things, a wrong driver or no driver at all, screen resolution to low for the screen you are using, or yet again, faulty hardware whereas the first two is more likely

The system not being able to boot into windows could be related to the driver not being installed and/or the card not getting enough power, it can also be related yet again to a faulty card, but it being a Driver is this case most likely in this case, and since you can boot into save mode, see if you can see any driver files left over by your X300, it isn’t uncommon for files to say behind after the program or component has been uninstalled

The devise being stuck in an infinite loop can and most likely be caused by the drivers as well, since windows has a default *no extras* driver built into the system, is can cause the problem because the instructions that the card uses are not included in this deavult driver

Save mode does not stably support any higher resolution than 640 x 480 (up to 800 x 600 with SP2 installed) and can/will cause problems if set to any higher

Weird color pattern can be cause by a few things as well, the problem could be with your screen not displaying the color properly, it could be a faulty driver giving wrong color information to the card, or it could be the card itself, with the driver not being installed seems the be the culprit in this case

Recommendations:

Test the card in another computer or multiple other computers (if able) and see if the problem arises with the other one as well, that way it can be determined if the card is working properly, try a bigger PSU, the card might not be getting enough power the root of all the above problems, if possible, try and download the latest drivers for your card, preferably the WHQL certified forceware driver and try and install id under Save mode(it is possible) while in save mode, see if any files are left from the previous drivers and remove them, reboot and see if problem persists, A windows repair might also be needed in some cases, if there are up-to-date backups of your pc it is a good way to sort out certain windows booting problems, or take the card back to the place it was bought and let it be tested under certain controlled conditions if it comes to that a format and clean install of windows might be needed, but that is a last-resort fix and should be avoided if possible

Hi, I think you will need to run the Dell restore disk, install the orriginal drivers and use the dell system to bootup then load the drivers the ASUS drivers then close the system, install the new card and then bootup. on doing this there will be resident drivers for the new card and it should work fine, then delete the orriginal drivers.
