    So I've had this computer for a very long time now, and I've been playing games on it ever since I had purchased it. Now, every time I go to start a game, it crashes (WoW, Wc3, SC, ect). I receive the nv4_disp infinite loop error, and sometimes even the Blue Screen of Death. I'm not sure on what to do and tried many things to help. But nothing seems to work. I know this isn't a gaming computer, but it has been fine with games all the way up until now.

    Does your computer crash only when playing games? Did you check your graphics card drivers and if hardware is ok? How long does it happen? Like recently?

    Video Card Dying is my guess. They dont last forever.

    Maybe you can try to uninstall driver then reinstall them?
