Default PC video card error?

I am getting this error while playing wow and also a blue screen of death. Any help?

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

The display device driver got stuck in on infinte loop. This usually indicates problem with the device itself or with the device driver programming the hardware incorrectly.

STOP 0x000000EA: (0x8877E020, 0x88BB54B8, 0xBA4E3CBC, 0x00000001)

nv4_dispay dump of physical memory. Physical memory dump complete.

take a look at this

Error message in Windows XP: "STOP 0x000000EA THREAD_STUCK_IN_DEVICE_DRIVER"

also get the latest drivers for your card.

Did you fully remove the video drivers with something like Driver Cleaner Pro?
