  1. Stop: 0x0000007E (0000005, 0XF7EAAA, 0XB8C50BD0, 0XB8508CC)

    HSFDPSP2.SYS - ADRESS F7E73AAA Base at F7E4A000, Datestamp 40D22144


    Stop: 0X00000050 (0XF2403490, 0X00000001, 0XBF1C2160, 0X00000000)

    Spot: 0x0000008E (0xC000001D, 0xbf0cd722, 0xb599af8, 0x00000000)

    NV4_disp.dll - address bf0cd722 base at bf012000, datestamp 00000000


    I know the nv4_disp.dll is a video card problem and the HSFDPSP2.SYS is a modem problem. I donno why I'm getting this error. When I first got this computer it ran fine for a long time. Then one day i got this error, somehow I fixed it and I have no clue how. Now it happens again. What can cause this problem? Could it be the driver is loose? I didn't shut down right and damage the files?

    I recenlly tried to uninstall the driver and reinstall it with the current one.

    system status:
    Athlon 1800
    Windows XP home with SP 2
    NVIDIA G-Force4 MX 440 with AGP8x
    softV92 data Fax modem
    516 Ram
    I believe the one under computers is my mother board. . .its ACPI Uniprocessor PC
    2 Drivers, 1 is about 55.8 GB primary and the other is 57.2 GB

    Is this a leading brand computer (Manufacture Name and model number required)
    Or it one that has been made up, and put together?
    ie did the Video card come with it too

    Theres a sticker thingy on my computer that says it. It could be the processor I donno. This computer was a gift form my uncle. All I know is, form the very beginning I never got this error.

    No it won't be a sticker
    It'll be printed on it like DELL HP Asus Compaq something like that

    But if it's just a big black (or white) box, without markings, then I suppose it's been put together by someone.

    Can you do the following:


    And copy and paste this exact line in the run field:


    Then press OK

    If there are any new Minidumps in there (they have the date on the filename itself)
    Please attach one to a new reply

    Inside the MiniDump:
    This happened when MapleStory was running (a game)
    Check for any game updates, or confirm your video card has the latest drivers installed

    game update is at the most current. video card is the most current. by the way. . .how u know I was playing maple story 0_o

    I am currently on maplestory right now. These errors are very random. The last thing I need is this happening when I have school again.

    Really? My dog pooped there and I didn't clean it up yet :haha:

    Well I havn't got any crashes but then again, I haven't been on any games ether. Maybe my video card is damaged? Maybe I should replace it ><.

    I don't think its the games because I been haven't really chance anything with my game play. I played my 2 main games for a long time. The first time this happen was about 2 years ago and I fixed it somehow. I played maplestory & Warcraft 3 and got no errors. about 2 weeks ago i played Warcraft 3 for a little and then it crash. I downloaded a new driver and installed it and after 2 days it crashed again. Now I tried to uninstall and reinstall it, but didn't play any games. I'm sure its not the game because it should of crash on me everytime I play it at least once in a week.

    oh and here are some towels :D

    It could be dust built up in the Video Card (and not software at all)
    You could try removing it and blowing out all dust (and the computer too)

    Oh and because we're still on the funny things, check this out:

    And remove the modem while you're at it. If you don't need it (they cause lots of issues)
    And it's 512 Meg of Ram (Now I'm being picky :) )

    Well, I don't do mini dumps, and I am standing WAY behind kimsland, but here are a couple of suggestions:

    Suspect the memory and corrupt driver(s)
    You can try this:
    1. STOP: 0x0000007E: can be from:
    *Incompatible video adapter drivers, *A damaged device driver or system service.
    Filename: hsfdpsp2.sys
    Directory: C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\
    Company Name: Conexant Systems, Inc.
    File Version: 7.12.09
    File Description: HSF_DP driver Product Name: SoftK56 Modem Driver
    Go to the manufacturer's site and look for a firmware update for the modem.

    Then this:
    2. Stop: 0X00000050: Defective memory (including main memory, L2 RAM cache, video RAM) or incompatible software (including remote control and antivirus software) might cause Stop 0x50 messages.
    nv4_disp.dll> lower the acceleration settings. If graphics acceleration is not an issue, lowering the acceleration to None would most likely solve the problem --

    And/Or this: reinstall the newest Nvidia drivers from the nvidia website. Then go to the c:/windows/system32 folder an delete old nv4_disp.dll files and kept the one for the newest drivers.
