did you remove the old video driver and reinstall the new driver for the new video card ?

download from the website for the video card the latest driver
goto device manager and uninstall the video

Try deleting all video devices within the Device Manager and reboot the PC. Then Windows will discover the new video card. When requested which drivers to install insert the CD that came with the card and select it.

Hi guys! Thanks for your prompt response. I fixed it by removing the old video driver and reinstalling the driver for my video card.
Thanks again!
