Solved: NV4_disp
So I've been having the infamous NV4_disp error for a while.. I can't play 3D or 2D games. DirectXDraw =2D. Ever since that NV4_DISP error started I couldn't do anything. I was able to play before, then all of the sudden out of no where it happend. Well.. When I uninstall the Nvidia display driver it only has DirectxDraw, which works. but if I install it, I can't play 3D games or 2D games. Well, is there an older version, or newer one that doesn't cause this? Or do I need to delete the DLLs that have to do with NV4_disp.dll, then install an older driver? Can someone help please? I've had this problem for over 5 months.. :/ Oh and duh, since I got htat NV4_disp error All directx3D and Directxdraw tests fail.

Try some of the archived drivers at Nvidia. These help clean out old pieces:

Driver Cleaner Professional
Nasty File Remover

Thank you so much! I've been searching for the older drivers for a while, and I just installed an old one. One or two versions older then the one that was causing the damned BSOD. Well everything works fine now, thanks alot.

The new drivers are supposed to be backward-compatible. But as you discovered, they are optimized for the newest hardware and not always as compatible with the older as they should be.

Thanks for the followup.
