I was using Daz/Studio, a 3d animation program, and I got a message that I wish I had written down but said something about 3d error, and may have said something about adobe. Then my computer froze so I shut down. When I tried to start it would not start normally but would start in safe mode. I ran Checkdisk and now it won't even open in safe mode. If I try to open normally it just tries to run checkdisk again and if I try to open in safe mode it gets stuck after the MUP.SYS file is listed, then eventually I get a black screen with a cursor that I can move around but nothing there. I let it sit there for up to 11 hours but nothing ever came up. I think it is bad graphics card or driver. I have fiddled with the system setting but nothing works. When I was in safe mode I tried to open Daz/Studio again but got message that this requires 1.3 something card and I only have 1.1 version.
I have the reinstallation CD but not a ASR disk.
What would happen if I yank the graphics card out? I can't uninstall the drivers.
I have Dell Optiplex 740 model E2010Hc with XP pro. Nvidia GEforce card.
Any ideas or suggestions?
