I would try and uninstall the old driver, if it hasn't already been removed, and re-install the latest driver from the Nvidia site. I just wish Windows provided a clearer message and a more straightforward means of resolving the issue than they currently do with blue screen errors.

Most of what I found suggested it was a problem with a recently installed graphics card, but since my graphics card has remain unchanged since I bought my computer last year, Some folks have offered very creative alternatives. I wish I could help you further, but fortunately, downloading the driver worked for me, and I don't have any other tricks up my sleeve.

Anyhow, my computer would boot up, show the Dell Bios screen, and then hit the BSOD. http://screwattack.roosterteeth.com/post/1807994 I went to bed Monday night and the computer was fine.

RM Posted by: Jessica | May 07, 2006 at 04:56 AM Just got this problem after Windows Update installed some "fixes"--I don't know that I would blame Nvidia for that. There are some interesting ideas if that didn't work. I could tell from their English.
I was using the new DVI cable that came with the Samsung instead of the "old" DVI cable that was being used with the DV172B.. After some unnerving moments, because I had to uninstall my present drivers, and also had to activate XP again with Microsoft, I finally had my system back to normal functioning. The installation will run its course. And indeed, the vintage game now did end properly.
