Are you sure you have to uninstall the old drivers on your integrated graphics. I don't have to with my graphics card. Do you have the card installed now? If you don't just put it in and plug your monitor into it.

That's a pretty small PSU, go HERE, half way down the page is a link called The truth about power supplies. Click on it, in there is a list of how much power each componet uses in your computer and you can add them up to see if your PSU is big enough. If you need to get a new one, I like Antec and Thermaltake. I'm sure there are other brands but don't go cheap. The cheap ones don't supply power good enough for a lot of stuff and can crap out easily. :thumbsup:

Wait, though. With your card in, have you plugged your monitor into the integrated graphics and get a display?

From there (if running windows 98/xp) right click on the desktop and click properties. Then go to the settings tab. Afterwards click the Display: drop down box and select your graphics card. Click extend view onto monitor, then use as primary monitor. Then go back to the integrated graphics and uncheck the box saying extend view onto this monitor. Hopefully this works for you!

I am using a Rosewill power supply. I just got it a few weeks ago. Its holding up greate I have a mild system. Intel Celeron 2.7 Processor OC'd to 3.0 ghz, 1024 mg of DDR 266, Radeon 9200 PCI video, Segate 120 gig HDD. The powersupply seems really well built using steel for the case, high quality connectors and a good fan for cooling

We had a similar problem at work the other day. Some of the fixes that we tried were:

1) Reset the BIOS to default
2) Flash the BIOS
3) Another video card

In our case we took the easy way out and sent it out to the service center for a motherboard replacement - dunno if that's going to fix it tho'!
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
