Question about Nvidia Graphics Cards

1 Answer

Nvidia 6600GT I have had this graphics card for a long time and it has never caused any problems. However, I switched to Vista and it started playing up. I switched back to XP and I am still having the same problem. When I am playing games, the images display correctly, but then I get "tears" on the screen. Like, a pool of water will have a massive white square in it, or the top of the screen will just be purple or walking over land and I will see random grey squares in the landscape. Does anyone know what causes this? I don't understand why it should suddenly start now. When I switched to Vista, I was told it was caused because my motherboard was not compatible, hence I switched back. Now, there should be no problem. Temperatures are fine and my motherboard is compatible. Thanks in advance.

Click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to display adapters + to expand you might see a yellow question mark ? or exclamation mark ! or a red x right click select reinstall drivers

If your computer came with a motherboard disc the drivers could be on it

Want to make sure your drivers are in place and no errors have occurred? Simply click start right click on my computer select properties then select device manager scroll to Display Adapters and click on the small "+" you should see the model of your PCI Express graphic card there. If there is a problem with it, a yellow exclamation mark should appear besides it. If you don

Nav4_disp conflict?


The nv4_disp fix I was able to successfully restore my computer to tip-top shape in 5 easy steps. Here’s my 10 minute solution.
  1. Boot your computer into Safe Mode w/ Networking. For Windows XP users, this is accomplished by pressing F8 repeatedly when your computer is booting up. You will be presented with several options. Choose “Safe Mode w/ Networking.” This will boot Windows XP into Safe Mode, but you will be able to browse the Web.
  2. Go to NVIDIA’s Web site and download the latest display drivers for Windows XP. I saved the 20MB file to my desktop for easy locating later on.
  3. Remove the NVIDIA display drivers currently installed on your machine. To do this, right click on “My Computer,” then select Properties. Click the “Hardware” tab, then click “Device Manager.” You now see a list of hardware devices installed on your computer. Double click “Display Adapters.” You should now see your NVIDIA card listed. Click it once to highlight it, then click the “Uninstall” icon in the upper right of Device Manager menu. Say “peace!” as the NVIDIA drivers are removed from your machine.
  4. Install the updated NVIDIA display drivers. Double-click the NVIDIA setup file you saved to the desktop earlier. The installation will run its course.
  5. Reboot your computer.
After following these steps, Windows XP should start up as usual (prior to our little nv4_disp bug). Your “nv4_disp” problem is officially solved.
What caused the nv4_disp problem? In short, I have no idea. I’m actually still trying to figure this out, so I welcome any comments about what could have been the cause. In doing some quick searches across the Web, however, I see that this is actually a common problem.
