    Alright, after solving another problem I had I thought I was done with the problems. I thought too soon.

    I start up the computer, everything goes fine until after windows loads. The auto install devices starts running. Finding the new hardware/software etc. When it hits the onboard video I previously had a screen pops up saying "***** is a compaq product, it will not be used". Then it has that annoying "press any key to continue". So I pushed the infernal "any" button. After that the screen goes black and freezes up. I cant seem to get the new card to work. Freezes up and does not let me do anything.

    Once again I ask you all for help. And once again, thanks in advance. :)

    Alright, I made a mistake. It was my onboard sound that was causing the freeze up. But I dont think it is a hardware problem so to speak. Mainly because it says it will not be used click to continue. Then it just freezes up. Sometines the top of the screen goes all messed up.
