Start button missing

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.perform_maintain (More info?)

I installed a nVidia GeForce card on my new computer which
has integrated graphics. Now, I have no Start button, so I
can't get into Explorer. I tried adjusting the screen, but
no matter how far I shrink it, there is still no Start
button or status bar. Also, I can't get one of my 3D
games to work. I have sound to the game, but no video.
Any other application works fine, including my other
games, but I can't fire up an application that does not
have an icon on the desktop. Computer specs are: 2.8 gHz

    Look like you need to roll back the installation. Reboot
    and depress and hold F8 ,choose "Last Known Good
    Configuration"

    Now your sound and video problems, You should download
    updates from microsoft. Microsoft update should recognize
    video and audio updates you require.
