I hope a member can help me with this problem. I recently bought a new 256 MB AGP card to replace a 64 MB version. As the first step of the installation process I deleted the existing NVIDIA drivers via Add/Remove programs. When I rebooted, the BIOS screen and POST test worked OK but immediately after the Windows logo, the blue screen check disk process started. Having run to 100% and the summary of bytes, no further progress is made. The screen simply hangs. I've tries starting in safe mode (but just get a monochrome screen full of code) and I've been into the BIOS to see if I can make any changes that will cure the problem. So far to no avail.
The operating system is XP Home. The motherboard is an ASUS A7M266.
Any suggestions most welcome. Paul
