I recently got a Nvidia Geforce FX5500 video card, and I am having one heck of a time getting it installed.
I should mention, I have an Intel board with built in video. XP Pro
I put the card in PCI slot, booted...windows did not find the new card as new hardware, but it showed up in the device manager. I downloaded the drivers I believe I needed 'Windows 2000/XP driver for all NVIDIA graphics cards'.
a 40mb download from Majorgeeks. After installing the drivers, everything went to #@%$!!!
When booting, the monitor would only work off the new card, but at the sign on screen, the monitor would only work with on-board video plug.
I got multiple 'failed to start' errors, all blaming a dll. And even got a warning that said I may be the victim of software piracy. ALL MY SOFTWARE IS LEGITIMATE. I have automatic updates on, and the validation tool, etc.
I am sure I did something wrong.
I probably did not install the drivers correctly...
I would appreciate any advice.
