I'm new to this site, so please forgive any breach of etiquette.:)
I am trying to install a graphics card on my son's computer so he can play his new Republic Commando game. He's got a Dell Dimension with a Celeron processor and 512 MB SDRAM. According to the manufacturer this is adequate to run the card. He previously just had integrated video.
I've physically installed the card and drivers, and when the computer boots I see the GeForce driver is installed and I have video while Windows is in the process of loading. THEN, right before I get to the Windows screen, the screen goes blank. I have tried rebooting several times.
Any suggestions? Do you think it's just a bad card? Diablotek tech support is a joke - I tried to get through for an hour on my dime and they don't even put you on hold. Thanks for your help.
