If I were you, I would uninstall the video card driver, then reinstall the same driver, usiing the CD that came with the card.

Well, it has long been a problem with various video cards, that often the latest drivers don't work properly with older cards. So the best thing to do would be to go to the website run by the manufacturer of the card, and try to download the original driver for it.

In that case you might try a "System Restore" using a restore point that predates this whole problem. Alternately, you could restore from "Backup" if you happen to have one.
