Title pretty much sums it up. Recently built myself a new PC, did the usual XP installation, anti-virus, etc. Was performing routine updates when I started to try to install the update for the video card. Basically, it wigged out, changed the resolution of my screen and froze up during the setup. When I ended the task, I had a few warnings telling me system files got corrupted, such as the chkdsk.exe file.
I'm pretty pissed, needless to say, after spending much time building the PC and setting it up only to be undone by a routine video card update. Anyone else experience this problem? I tried rebooting, and now my monitor won't recognize the hook-up. Thinking about putting in the XP disk and running repair on it. That should do the trick, right? Either that or reinstalling XP for the THIRD time.
I tried to backtrack and install the drivers that came on the CD, but couldn't uninstall the old drivers first since half the stuff in my Control Panels was missing! (Including Add & Remove Software). So that's when I rebooted and it went to hell.
Maybe install BIOS update and mobo drivers first, if any? Does the sequence matter?
Motherboard: eVGA nForce 680i SLi
Video: NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GT (2)

RAM: 2 Gb DDR2-800 PC6400
Any help is appreciated.
