Well Im trying to install a GeForce FX 5500...Im doing as it says, but once its install and trys to boot up...i get a black screen after the windows screen. I think/know i should try to uninstall my onboard vid card's driver, but it wont allow me, is there anyway to bypass it? Or a way to remove the driver?
The first peice of hardware the system checks for is the video card, if it shows up when it POST's then its prolly not broken. i really never had this problem, but yes try reseating it. P.S. You should not have to uninstall onboard drivers.
Can't be 100% certain...but to me it sounds like you're on the right vcard...but Windows (I'm going to assume this as your OS) is having a prob w/ it.
As the POST is finishig up, push F8. This SHOULD bring up the Windows advanced startup menu. You want to start with Enable VGA Mode. This sets everything down to use very basic colors and resolution. This should allow you to get into the GUI and install the proper drivers. Maybe....
