windows display driver problem
I just installed a brand new AGP video card in a used machine that I bought several months ago. I was previously running a PCI card over a motherboard with an onboard adapter using shared memory.
The new card's manual said to remove all old video drivers, so I did that in windows with the 'add/remove programs' option. I shut the computer down, removed the old PCI card and inserted the new AGP one. After that, I couldn't get windows to show anything. Whether I tried my PCI card, AGP, or just used the onboard adapter everything would display correctly up to windows, and then the monitor would go blank. I could even hear the windows start-up tone through my speakers! Since the PC is used, I can't re-install windows or use the system recovery options (I don't have the disk). Are there any other things I could do to get the OS to recognize a new video card (or any video card, for that matter)?
