I bought a new k7s5a pro motherboard with duron 700mhz proc.
I seem to be having a problem getting my nvidia drivers installed for my video card. The motherboard does not have on board video, so this is not an issue. When the computer would boot it would find a video controller(vga) under other devices. (I had to reinstall the operating system since i changed the mb and proc win 2000 advanced server). So when i load the drivers, even brand new ones 45.23, the windows screen tries to load and then everthing just goes blurry and haywire. I know the card is good because i was just using it before i had to reinstall everthing. I've had a similar problem like this before on another board, but it had on board video. I just had to make sure the on board video was disabled before it would finish loading the drivers. In BIOS i have the agp 4x disabled since i am using a Gforce 4 440 mx pci card. I have Primary Graphics adapter- PCI, Plug and play aware o/s- yes, allocate irq to pci vga- yes pci/ide bus master- enabled and i did not load drivers for agp off the motherboard disc since i am not using an agp card. What am i doing wrong? I've installed plenty of op sys before. Never had this problem. Does my BIOS need a new update? if so, why? It is dated Jan 2003 i think that would be ok.

I got it figured out. Don't use pci slot 1. IRQ conflict with usb. I overlooked this in the manual. Thanks. Everyone.
