    Welcome to TIMO phuzin, This problem of yours could be one of several different things. If you still have the old power supply swap it out first. If that doesn't work make sure you have the newest drivers for your video card and give that a shot. Also make sure you have everything pluged in correctly(if your video card has an external power connector, plug it in).

    all hardware have been connected properly...and i have unchecked the "auto reboot" option and an error message appeared

    A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer

    The Problem seems to be caused by the following file: nv4_disp

    If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer.If this screen appears again,follow these steps

    The device driver got stuck in an infinite loop. This usually indicated problem with the device itself or with the device programming the hardware incorrectly.

    Please check with your hardware device vendor for any device updates.

    shud i install a new driver?my current driver is 78.01 and i installed it from the disc that came with the graphics card...i don't think i want to install the newest drivers(which is 81...) because it showed a lot of bugs in the game....

    Sometimes.. depending on the card and the game.. it is nessesary to downgrade your drivers to to accomodate some older games.

    How far you should go back all depends on what card you have. If you have not upgraded to the most recent drivers I would start with that first though if you decide to use older drivers it may be nessesary to use something like the "Detonator Destroyer" to completely remove the drivers that are currently installed.

    I used to have this problem when I tried to play the old Xwing vs. Tie Fighter game and I believe downgrading to an older det driver solved the problem.
