So I am stuck with little knowledge of how to dig out of this hole I find myself in. I just installed a new video card in an older DELL XPS desktop, but I realised that I had forgotten to delete the old drivers beforehand. In my attempt to remove the "old drivers", at least that's what i thought I was doing :whistle: , I uninstalled the gpu in device manager. So now I am running with no video card, and I don't know to put it back so I can have a place to put a driver. Any tip's would be welcome!

Edit: P.s., I hope this is the correct forum

Im assuming you still have an image on your screen-simply put in the driver disc that came with your video card and choose install, they should install the drivers for your new video card. If you dont look up the website for your video card and download the latest drivers from there and install.
