Geforce 220 / Resolution Reset

I installed a new graphics card, Nvidia Geforce 220, running Windows XP
On the 1st boot up, it started at 480x640, then i install the driver (up to date), restart, normal resolutions and works great.

Then when I restart it (2nd boot up), it goes back to 480x640, 32bit. It gives me the option to reset the resolution/color bit mode, but no matter what I select it just reverts back to 480x640/32bit color.

If i uninstall the drivers, reinstall, reboot, it works again, but upon the reboot right after it works, it goes back to 480x640.

Anybody have a clue where the root of the problem might be? Should I try an older driver?
*I'm installing the drivers with no user to choose, so I'm assuming I'm doing w/ admin rights.
*Drivers I got are off Nividia website

Did you get rid of the drivers for your old GPU? It might be a driver conflict.

Try installing your driver in Windows safe-mode. The only thing I can think of is a virus protection of some sort or the other is affecting the install.
