I have Windows XP professional

Here's what i've gotten more than once:

A problem has been detected and Windows has shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

The problem seems to be caused by the following file: nv4_disp

If this is the first time you've seen this Stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

The device driver got stuck in an infinite loop. This usually indicates problem with the device itself or with the device driver programming the hardware incorrectly.

Please check with your hardware device vendor for any driver updates

Technical Information
*** STOP: 0x000000EA (0x81A10A00, 0x82208008, 0x81A1CAD8, 0x00000001)

nv4_disp
Beginning dumb of physical memory.

Contact system administrator or technical support group for further assistance.

I have the 128MB DDR NVidia GeForce FX 5200 graphics card installed on the computer.

When I tried using F8 to start the computer in the safe mode, my keyboard is disabled and I cannot get past the administrator login password. My keyboard does not have a USB connection and I also tried another keyboard, only to have the same problem.

What suggestions do you have?:confused:

If you also have integrated graphics/video capability on your motherboard, you could pull the nVidia card and boot using the onboard.
Likewise if you have an alternative graphics card lying about.

You could also try booting from your Windows disc and using the repair options.

I think this is a pretty common issue with that series of cards, and unfortunately no overly clear resolution.
You'll have to try removing the driver package (when you get back into Windows) and installing later or older versions....

I tried booting from the Windows disc, but my keyboard continues to become disabled. Is there something that I can do to prevent that from happening during the startup process?

Can you get into windows normally? If you can, uninstall the nividia graphics driver and reinstall it.

With an FX 5200 I would use some older drivers.

That is correct. When I power up the computer, I can use the F12 key to bring up the boot menu. The keyboard will work to select an option at this point. The computer reads the windows setup disc and after a minute or two will ask me whether I want to set up XP, repair XP, or quit. My keyboard is disabled at this point so I can't make a selection. Prior to this alternative, I tried starting up in the safe mode using F8. When I get to the administrator login, I can't enter a password because the keyboard is disabled.

The keyboard is not a USB connection, and I tried another keyboard just to make sure that it wasn't the keyboard.

I tried a third keyboard and it worked this time. I started the computer in the safe mode and uninstalled the driver on the C drive. Then when I restarted the computer and reinstalled the driver, the computer screen kept flashing to black. So I decided to disable the video card for now. When I ran the diagnostics on from the Driver CD, the result was FAIL. Does this mean that the card is bad?
