Tonight i bought a new graphics card, a nvidia geforce 6200 PCI for my highly useless dell dimension 3000. The card was recommeneded by many as the best card for my situation, now that i have the card installed im stuck. The carrd went in fine, and after slight trouble at the start with the new plugging in of my cable to monitor, i thought i had it ready to install - software side. I started windows (which was low resolution) and put in my cd, followed the instructions to install the drivers. It told me i needed to uninstall my current driver for my intel extreme graphics 2 from add remove programmes, which i did easily. Went back into the installer and went throught the process again. It finished with no visible errors but when i restarted my pc after the windows xp logo all i get is a black screen??? its nothing to do with hardware i dont think as it shows my bios screen and the windows logo. In the manual for my graphics card it says i need too disable my onboard graphics. Would this be causing the problems and, if so how can i go about disabling the onboard graphics on my dimension 3000? i know you guys are great here so any help would be appreciated as i use that pc for important business.
