Default Disappearing graphics card.

About 6 months ago, i turned on my PC, and the GFX card would'nt work, upon investigation it seemed it had been replaced with a 6150LE 256mb apparently, (was an X-1300pro), at the time my computer was getting a bit slow too, and quite frankly I could'nt be arsed as its not a great system, so i just got on with it running on what i expected to be integrated graphics..... Turned her on the other day, tells me to connect DVI and its working again.

What is the point of this story?...

Im not sure...

oh yeh, does anyone have a vague idea why this would happen? it did also happen again last night so i uninstalled the nvidia drivers and shazam... We're playing again.
