  1. I have been having this problem for a while now. My computer restarts itself randomly! I have un-installed and re-installed and updated numerous drivers. Just today I went into the event viewer and seen this. Just wondering if any of you guys had any ideas? Thanks

    The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x000000ea (0x89828020, 0x89df1910, 0x8a110240, 0x00000001). A dump was saved in: C:WINDOWSMinidumpMini040911-06.dmp.

    WHO CRASHED gave me this:

    crash dump file: C:WINDOWSMinidumpMini040911-06.dmp
    This was probably caused by the following module: nv4_disp.dll (nv4_disp+0x29675)
    Bugcheck code: 0xEA (0xFFFFFFFF89828020, 0xFFFFFFFF89DF1910, 0xFFFFFFFF8A110240, 0x1)
    file path: C:WINDOWSsystem32nv4_disp.dll
    product: NVIDIA Compatible Windows 2000 Display driver, Version 266.58
    company: NVIDIA Corporation
    description: NVIDIA Compatible Windows 2000 Display driver, Version 266.58
    Bug check description: This indicates that a thread in a device driver is endlessly spinning.
    This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem.
    A third party driver was identified as the probable root cause of this system error. It is suggested you look for an update for the following driver: nv4_disp.dll (NVIDIA Compatible Windows 2000 Display driver, Version 266.58 , NVIDIA Corporation).
    Google query: nv4_disp.dll NVIDIA Corporation THREAD_STUCK_IN_DEVICE_DRIVER

    As per your information your issue is with the Nvidia display driver nv4_disp.dll

    I suggest doing the following...

    1. Download Driver Sweeper free version to your desktop screen and install.

    2. Download the latest diver(s) for your video card but don't install them.

    3. Uninstall your video card drivers and reboot your PC into Safe Mode. Run Driver Sweeper but ONLY for the video card drivers. I had someone use it on their chipset drivers! If it doesn't find any video card drivers that is quite okay; just leave all other drivers alone.

    4. Reboot and install new video card drivers.
