    Cool

    What are your system specs and especially graphics card? Try updating drivers.

    This is a very bad error, AFAIK, which can be caused by hardware mulfunctions. If new drivers doesn't solve it, there is a chance your card is faulty. It could also be that it gets overheated or that it doesn't get enough power from your power supply unit.

    By the way, I was getting that error when I was upgrading my pc and installed 7900GT. Turned out the card had defect RAM. Had to return it for replacement.

    Cool

    In any case, this is well known problem (just check Google for "nv4_disp loop"). It can be triggered by different software (games) on different cards. Maybe this is something you can try:

    Nope, "nv4_disp" there has been another thread about that and it had all the links to a fix. No big deal, just try the search before starting a new thread =X.
    About the lockups, not sure about that. I have no idea what would cause that.
