    You have to deinstall the drivers of your old video card first. Put it in back and go to drivers update in device manager. Here you change the driver to vga standard driver. Then turn off your computer and change the video cards. Install the new driver (download the latest detonator driver). If you have VIA chipset on your motherboard install first the latest VIA4in1 driver (actually V.4.45). Good luck.

    Hi, ME has a lot of problems with some nvidia cards, go to the microsoft compatability site, sorry address not immediately on hand, check out your card against the MS listings. Sometimes microsoft have patches, also try nvidia for patches. Am speaking from past experience, had to put 98 back on one of our comps due to this problem. I bet you are trying to play Mechwarrior4.

    Download Aida32 here . And when you want to make sure what mainboard it is, then you have to open your case and take a look (usually in between the PCI slots) for your motherboard model. If you cannot find anything, then try here .
