Kade Posted May 6, 2007 Report Share Posted May 6, 2007 (edited) Hey there, I was recently sold a laptop. Acer Aspire 1710. (1741Mi) Intel Pentium 4 HT (Dual processor) 3.4 GHz; 512 Kb Cache. 1 GIG Ram. 17" SXGA Screen. nVIDIA GeForce FX Go5600 - 128 MB VRAM Man, I so wanted this machine to work out for me, but the video card keeps failing. I mean, when I received the unit, it was running on a generic VGA.dll driver, giving me 32-bit colour at 1280*1024 resolution. Now, naturally, I wanted to activate the nVIDIA card and try out some games. However, the moment I install the Go5600 drivers, which were detected and accepted by windows, the machine reboots for settings to take effect, and a few seconds after the XP loading-screen, I get a BSOD with an infinite loop warning - this remains a constant problem, no matter how many different Go5600 drivers I use. Even when I install the drivers, but don't restart, opening dxdiag sends the computer crashing into the same BSOD. (I tried everything; I even altered resolution and colour display, but that too would lead to the n4_disp crash.) The seller's not being very helpdful at this point, which means I'll have to take a tough line and return the item. However, before I do that, I thought I'd get some feedback from you people. What's your diagnosis? I've seriously tried virtually ever single driver from 55.something to 99.something, and all the modified ForceWare drivers. Really, I just get the same problem - the video card goes into a loop and the n4_disp driver stops working. Your insights would be greatly appreciated, as I'm at my wits end with this damned situation. Cheers. Edited May 6, 2007 by Kade Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
