    Hi everyone, I'm Alex93, I'm new to the forum, and I was hoping that you guys could help me with a problem that's been annoying me a lot over the past few months.
    My computer crashes randomly. My computer initially started to crash when I was gaming, and now it crashes at any given time randomly when I am using my computer. It was rare at first but now it happens like clockwork at least once a day. I get loads of error screens with:

    Nv4_disp.dll
    PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

    or

    DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

    It crashes almost immediately when booting up MW2, and after a few minutes of play with Team Fortress 2, but also happens sporadically whilst doing nothing in particular.The problem disappeared for two weeks after installing an nVidia 8800 gtx, then randomly started again worst than before. If anyone could take a look at the latest minidumps and give some advice on how to solve the problem, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    nv4_disp.dll is indeed identified as a probable cause in one of your minidump files.

    RtkHDAud.sys, Realtek HD Audio sound driver, is another one.

    Make sure you have the latest drivers for both. If so, uninstall and reinstall them.
