I recently installed a new geforce 5200 xfx 256mb pci card on my Dell dimension 1100 (only supports pci). I disabled the onboard graphics and installed the drivers. First of all when windows booted up everything was in really bad resolution, I tried installing the drivers again and now I get a blank screen after xp has loaded, though I can hear the login noise. I've tried with and without the card, i've switched between "onboard" and "auto" in the system setup, i've tried switching the monitor between the card and the onboard but nothing works. It seems to be a fairly common problem but in all the examples i've read elsewhere on the net the problem could be fixed by using safe mode. But when I try safe mode I just get a screen full of text and nothing happens. An example of the text is "multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS\Syste m 32\Drivers\pci.sys" and a list of other files in the same location.
Any idea what the problem could be? I'm not too bothered about getting the card working anymore, I just want to see my desktop again
any help would be apreciated.
