After installing a G-force mx 200 PCI card, when I right click on my desktop I get a C++ runtime error for explorer.exe abnormal termination. When I click ok on the error box I get a blue screen and can only alt-ctrl-del to shutdown at that point. Tried removing the video card and removing the drivers but problem still exists. Machine is a HP 8655c with the onboard video which can't be disabled except in windows.

1) download the latest drivers from nvidia.

2) boot into safe mode

3) remove all entries under add/remove programs

4) boot back into normal mode.

5) when windows detects new hardware, cancel out and then double click the downloaded drivers to install them.

6) reboot and see what happens.


if this doesnt work would need to know what OS you are running (95, 98, or me)

Have loaded and unloaded various navidia drivers with no change.
Have tried removing all navidia drivers and using the onboard video and the problem still exists. The operating system is 98SE.

Hi and welcome........maybe a scanreg /restore from a c: prompt will get you back to where you were before the problem?
