Fixed nv4_disp stuck in an infinite loop problem

If you are reading this blog you may know that I have a problem on my computer. I'm getting a BSOD (Blue Screen Of Dead) saying "the device driver got stuck in an infinite loop" while loading the desktop icons. Earlier I have posted a tip to prevent this occurring again. (Read my previous post about nv4_disp stuck in an infinite loop from here) But unfortunately it didn't work for me too long. During last week i faced this problem over and over again. Since there was no correct solution anywhere I have to uninstalled the display drivers and use my computer for time being. It was so difficult.

I don't want to believe that my VGA card was damaged some how because without drivers it is working fine. But just to make sure it's condition I have decided to take a look at the inside of my computer. I have not open the case for many months and it's full of dust. So I have blow out the dust using a blower and then removed the VGA card from the mother board. I have checked the circuit board and every part of the card and couldn't find any problem. So I have clean it up also and fixed it back to the mother board. Then I have boot my system back and installed the drivers for the VGA card once again.



Wow ! This time it worked. Drivers installed without any problem and my desktop load after the restart without any problem. I'm using my computer for weeks now without any problem. So, here is my tip if you are having the same problem on a older computer. Please clean your computer, clean your VGA card, clean the slots then give it a try again. Let me know if that worked for you. Good Luck !

Clean up your computer with CCleaner

Every computer need a good cleanup at least every three months. Your computer will gather too much unwanted stuff that make it work slower over the time.

Facebook Lite

Facebook Lite is the new simplified Facebook interface that they are testing these days. This lite version offers you only basic functionality such as making comments, accepting friend requests, writing on Walls, and viewing photos. This Lite version of Facebook will be super fast comapring to the current Facebook. Because still they are testing it not everybody is allow to use it. Only few of the selected people got the invitation to use it.

Now back to our story, This simplified interface will help most users to interact with it more quickly and save some time for their other works. Most of people are addicted to facebook applications and spend hours of their time on them. This makes current Facebook website to function slower. Because it is slower more people attracted to Twitter. Which gives you similer service. So my guess is Facebook is trying to be simple and faster like twitter. Here is the Facebook Lite interface.





If you have no clue about what Facebook is (That's not normal)Facebook is worlds best social networking website. This website currently has more than 250 million active users worldwide. Need to know more about Facebook ? Watch this Video.

Google Voice

For my point of view Google Voice is great free service that we all should have. It's still on Beta testing and you can only get it by an invitation. Google voice is basically phone redirecting service. You'll have a Google phone number and all your other phone numbers are associated with it. You can decide which phone should ring according to who's calling. It can be your home phone, Office phone or your cell phone. You also get standard features like call forwarding, Voice mail, SMS and call conferencing with Google Voice. Best thing is if you change your cell phone number, Office phone number or may be your home phone number you just have to change it within the program, So you don't have to bother to send the news to everybody that you have changed your number. Your Google number will remain same no matter what.

I have posted a article about Convert Windows File System to NTFS on this blog some time ago. To day in this post I'm going to discuss few of the error messages that you might get in the process of converting your drives in to NTFS.

Error 1 - "Access denied as you do not have sufficient privileges. you have to invoke this utility running in elevated mode"

Resolution - You might get this error especially if you are using Windows Vista.

Go to Start Menu -> All Programs -> Accessories - then click right mouse button on command prompt and get the menu.

You'll get "Run As" as the second option.

Then Select the option "The following user" -> Select Administrator -> Type the password if you have one or leave it blank if not.

It will run the command prompt as the administrator.


Error 2 - "Enter current volume label for drive"

Resolution - You can find the Volume label just before the drive letter on My computer window. If it's saying "Local Disk" you can leave volume label empty. If it has anything else showed up in there you need to type exact same thin under the volume label.


Error 3 - "This drive is dirty and cannot be converted.you will need to clear the dirty bit on this drive by running CHKDSK/f or allowing AUTOCHK to run on it the next time you reboot."

Resolution - Right click on your drive and select properties -> Go to tools tab -> Under the error checking section click the "check now" button. Most of the time it will say "disk check will run on next time you boot the computer". Restart the computer. Leave the disk check run while the boot up. Let it scan and fix your drive.

How To Synchronize With Yahoo Autosync

Yahoo Autosync synchronizes the information you store in Yahoo Address Book, Calendar, ToDo List, and Notepad with your Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express, or Palm Desktop. Yahoo Autosync compares your Yahoo data to the data in your application and makes whatever changes are necessary in either system to make sure that they both contain the same data. That way, when you add or delete something in one system and not the other, Yahoo! Autosync adds or deletes it in the system that needs updating.

Can't Open My Blog On Internet Explorer

For Past month I have faced some problems with my technology blog to get it open on the Internet explorer web browser. When I tried to open it using Internet explorer it gave me an "Operation Aborted" error. I couldn't open it. But I was able to open my other blog in the internet explorer without any problem and also for other web browsers like Firefox or chrome don’t seem to have this problem. Because this is becoming a frustration for my readers who uses internet explorer as their web browser I decided to search about it.

I have read many web sites and blogs and finally found some answers for it. This problem mainly caused by Followers Gadget or may be because of a third party Java Script. For my case it was the Followers gadget.

Since this issue was not fixed yet the only option is to remove the Followers gadget from your blog and if it didn't solve the problem try to remove other third party Java scripts you added to your blog.

I know this is not an easy thing to do. Removing certain things might impact the appearance of your blog badly. But for the time been this is our only hope. If you really wish to keep the Followers gadget try to put it in as low as possible position on your side bars. It fixed the problem for my other blog. I'm trying to do the same on this blog also.

You can find more information about this problem and any other problems you have with Blogger from this blog

Is it time to upgrade your PC ?

Computer technology is changing very quickly. New Hardware parts releasing very fast and even the Software is also changing very fast. So if you want to keep up with the phase you need to upgrade your computer more often. But if you are on a very tight budget this is not possible. But if you like to play newer computer games and like to use newer versions of software you'll definitely have to have a good hardware on your computer. Because not everyone is good at computer hardware knowledge they usually buy a new one. For my point of view this is wasting money. But in some cases you have to throw away your PC and have to buy an new one. For example, I'm still using a old Pentium 4 computer with DDR1 Rams and AGP Video card. So in my case there will be no upgrade. I have to buy or assemble (Which I always do) a new one because the technology changed so much that i can't use my old parts anymore. So, how will you decide when to upgrade your PC ?

If you are not in to Gaming or any other computer related professional work actually there is a very less chance that you want to upgrade your existing PC. If you are using it to surf the internet, listening to music or to word processing surely you want have to upgrade it. But one disadvantage of using a older system is if you want to replace a hardware part on it it will be really difficult or may be the price for that part may be too high.

The Royal Wii

The Nintendo Wii has positioned itself as the gaming console for everybody. As it turns out, that includes the Queen of England. Recently Famous game company THQ gave a special version of Wii for Queen as a gift. What makes the Queen's "Royal Wii" different? It's gold-plated, no more white plastic for Buckingham Palace. There was a rumor that she was "addicted" to playing Prince William's Wii last Christmas. Now she'll have one of her own a gold plated Wii.



According to the VG Chartz web site here are the gaming console sales. As you can see Wii is still in the lead. For me, I'm still using my PC for gaming.
