Default the most complicated case

im having a nightmare with my current PC.
its an AMD 3000+ , 512 RAM , and a 256mb nVidia 6200TC. WINDOWS XP SP2
it was working fine , when after some time .....the screen had some problems(not moniter)
the pixels got destroyed and was showing strange patterns.

i tried the moniter with another pc and it was fine.

i tried plugging in the moniter with the onborad but it wouldnt even start (the ext card was still in).........i thought there was some mother board problem.

i removed the graphics card and tried it , and that problem was gone.

now the onboard video was so bad i couldnt play games....
i tried starting HALO but it showed an error with some driver problem.

i thought that it was b'coz the ext card had been removed and the driver was still installed.

i dont know y i did that.


i went to properties from the desktop..
settings......reduced every thing

still not working (HALO)

then again
adapter .... there was no info given ( unknown) was ritten

i thought that this was the ext card and clicked ( disable this device).

the comp restarted ...but no screen

screen comes only till the os loading.

plz help
what to do??????????????????

Well first off if you were gonna remove your video card you were sapouse to remove the drivers and software. Your video card seems to be the problem, try getting another video card to figure it out. But first off try putting back your nvidia 6200 back in and start your comp up. If no go then just try putting a new video card in and if that doesnt work just reformat it.

<---- Please REP if i was helpful! Thanks! :thumbsup:

case = problem / issue
for example, a court case with lawyers etc

anyway, try removing the video drivers with Driver Cleaner
