Well recently i decided to get a new video card, so i went to the store and picked up a PNY Geforce FX 5200 AGP 64MB DDR video card. I brought it home and put in the installation software. The problem is this everytime i go to install it it gets to 55% then stops and says "Windows cannot load the installer for display". It finishes installing then asks me to restart. I restart the computer it come ups and before it loads xp its says the video card name and all like it reconizes it. When i get to the main part it didnt even install and it doesnt even reconize it. So i tried to put my old 16mb video card back in temporaraly so that i could at least still play games. I got to install the old one and the same thing happens. It wont take the new one and i cant get the old one back either. If anyone know how to fix this please let me know, thanks.

I tried that but it still said the same thing except at 2% this time. Unless I download the wrong one, which i dont think i did. I guess i could try again since i dont have anything better to do.

I think i know the problem.
go to control panel>add remove programs>change or remove programs. then remove BOTH drives, then install the new driver.

ps. from this point on you will always know to remove the driver before putting a new one in.

does this help

maybe go to control panel>system>hardware>device manager: and delete the video cards there then try again.

How do you get rid of the video card through the device manager?
