I recently intalled a new video card (a geforce 2 something or other).  Having followed the instructions to the letter, and disabling the onboard graphics card, i am still having problems.  My computer loads up to the windows 98 screen, but then freezes completely.  It will load in safe mode but that is about it.  I need help from someone who actually knows about this stuff cos to be honest im useless!!  Please Help!!!
Thanks. xx

whats your psu? if the power getting to the card is to low then its probly the reason it isnt working. Check the power on the back of the psu and how much the geforce needs in its manual. If its a pci card then its probly quite a lil power guzzler :-)
