    Hi,
    I've got a problem that I just can't figure out and don't quite know where to start.

    I had a brand new perfectly good Dell XPS. I added a nVidia GeForce graphic card, installed the most up to date Windows MCE 2005 device driver for it, and I changed the BIOS to boot to the PCI slot. Then I changed the windows settings to use the nVidia in the PCI slot as my secondary monitor.

    So that's what I did....this is what happens.

    I go to sleep, I wake up and the computer is shut down. I go to turn it on, it doesn't boot, just beeps at me.

    The only way to remidy this so far is to remove the nVidia card. I've removed and reinstalled it twice and it keeps doing the same thing.

    Please help, I have no idea what this might be or even where to start. :( Thanks in advance.
