    I have two problems, one is that that my NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 driver seems to be bad and the second is that when I try to go into safe mode, I sometimes get a "keyboard error" message and the keyboard locks up.

    Here are some more details on the driver problem. I noticed that my monitor was blinking so I tested it on another computer...work fine. I tested a second monitor with my NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 driver and had the same problem. By the way the problem has grown worse, to the point where I can't boot in normal mode. I've tried to uninstall and reinstall the NVIDIA driver, but get an error that a reads "error loading c:\windows\system32\nvinstnt.dll...says the module can't be found".

    The Dell tech support says I habve to reinstall Windows. I wanted to check with you guys first to see if you have any ideas.

    Here's some additional info. I've had the same computer configuration for over a year. The problem started a few days ago. I work on a Windows XP platform. The computer is a Dell Dimensions 4600.

    Any help is appreciated.
