Default Nvidia drivers

Ok well hello all

Here is my problem.

3 days ago i was playing Guild wars when the screen went black and i restarted. But when i restarted there were red lines on the dell screen and green lines on the windows load screen. Just before it goes to the User selection screen it goes back to a black screen and my monitor goes into standby mode. Again...

Now i reformated my hard drive, and reinstalled windows. Now i can get into windows but the red lines on teh dell screen and the green lines on the windows load screen are still there. But i can get into windows. So i was trying to update my video drivers and then halfway through installation the scren goes black with a bunch of different color boxes. So i tried installing in safe mode. It installed ok, but when i restarted my comp the computer did the same thing, red lines, green lines, and then the black screen where the windows user select should be. Monitor to standby etc... so i restarted with most recent settings that worked. Now i just cant install my drivers.

Now other things that i have found said that it is my vid card. I think so too. But just want to make sure. I dont have another vid card to replace it with to double check...

My pc specs are as follows
Pentium 4 3.2Ghz
Windows XP Media Center 2002 Service pack 2
2Gb of RAM
NVidia Geforce 6800

umm idk what else to put...

THanks for any help!

check if the video card is seated correctly , and if you have a onboard video card then plug it to that and see if its the monitor or the video card thats causing this

You may also want to download and reinstall your video/GFX drivers. but try Sylwek's suggestion first, to rule out the monitor.

so far you have formatted, reinstalled the os, ruled out the monitor, and are having trouble installing the drivers?
are you sure you have the right driver?
Have you tried taking the graphics card out and installing it on a different computer?
