Twice now I have install a NEW PCI-E video. I have removed the old drivers first as you should. turned off computer, unplugged,unscrewed,replaced NEW card, boot in to windows, Install drivers from CD, reboot windows, windows loading screen pops up Blue line start to move across, then it stops ,nothing. Wait there is more. I reset it go into windows in safe mode works fine uninstall drivers, window auto detects video card nice it installs drivers reboots same thing. AM I MISSING SOMETHING ? i have this same problem with 2 total different machines. Same trouble I bet its me
plz help me. im in windows XP but the other was Win 7 both geforce nVidia
Hi now this one maybe silly but if the same card is giving you problems on different machines the card maybe broken. You would only notice after installing the driver when the card should start "working". Maybe inspect it for damaged contacts etc.
You could try a different approach, uninstal all display drivers, power off, remove old card, boot without any card installed - into normal windows, power off, then place new card, boot into windows normally, install driver for new card, reboot again.
It is generally best to download the latest driver from your manufacturer, but the driver on the cd-rom should work theoretically, make sure you get the xp driver though, and double check whether you need 32-bit or 64-bit software for your Windows.
