it doesn't boots if i insert the graphics card, doesn't matters ndvidia drivers are installed or not.
even if i set my graphic adapter as primary display device in the bios with graphic card inserted it doesn't boot.

IMO...that just doesn't make sense...unless you have some sort of short in the motheboard which begins/revolves around your slot for installing a physical graphics card.

A device that's installed physically but not enabled in the BIOS...should not have the capability of interfering with boot/operating system processes, as I see it.

But the others here know a lot more about hardware than I do, so I suggest you await inputs from others.

whether this helps or not...here is a short story and a suggestion.
Years ago in 2003 (I still own this system btw) I had an FIC VA-503+ Motherboard. It has an AMD K-7 500Mhz type processor.
I started out with an 8Mb PCI card, it didn't run graphic intensive programs very well.
I got by with a Voodoo3 2000 16Mb PCI video card, but that even had slow graphics.
Any way when I tried installing a 64 Mb ATI Radeon 7000 video card and attempted to boot the system, it would not get past the Windows 98 splash screen before it rebooted over and over again, till I shut it down.
Nothing I did fixed this problem, until I got brave and flashed my motherboard's BIOS rom.
Once I had flashed it with F2A5LEF09 Bios, I tried buying that video card again and to my amazement, the post went into windows, where I was even able to install the catalyst software and drivers.
The card still works in that old relic (LOL)
I was also able to upgrade my AMD K-7 233Mhz processor to a AMD K-7 500 Mhz Processor after flashing the BIOS.
The point I'm trying to make here is, if there are no defective hardware issues, perhaps you need to flash your motherboards BIOS chip to a newer version, that supports newer hardware.
Go to your motherboard's web site and see if there is newer firmware available and check to see what the BIOS update revisions offer....they might actually add newer hardware support or bug fixes.
(EDIT): I also suggest going to your motherboard's chipset driver web site and downloading and installing the newest and latest chipset drivers.

Hope my two cents worth helps you divpreet

Ok have you tried to get the latest chipset drivers for your motherboard?

If yes, perhaps there is something wrong with that video card, you say it worked for a while then suddenly the system crashed and won't load windows with that card installed.

Although I have not researched whether or not that card is supported by your system or not. The card may have become over-heated at some point and the grapics chip could be damaged.

I suggest you try another graphics card and see if you have the same problem. Then you'll know if there is a motherboard problem or graphics card problem.

Also make sure any voltage settings in the video card section of your BIOS is set to the correct voltage for that video card, it might be too high or too low.

Most BIOSes have a voltage setting for graphics cards.
