Unhappy video card problem

Please help me...
about one month ago, when i played black n white, in the game i restart my pc forcely.
after i restart, my windows 98 SE ask me to run the win on safe mode...it seems that win can't detect my nvidia geforce 2 MMX 420 32MB.
i've try to reinstall the original driver (from the manufacture CD), restart it, and my pc run like there is no video card installed.
on system device, it said "the device not working properly,
the driver not full installed, bla bla bla (code 24)"

have clues?

Then your problem may not be your video card. You also may want to update your chipset drivers and BIOS aswell.

Nichol don't post the same question in the same thread twice...as this will guarantee you to not get assisted very well. Review the answers given to you thus far in the first one you created:
