my understanding,
having installed a Chaintech nVidia 64MB AGP gForce 400MX vid card,
is that drivers may be found after installation that
would be appropriate.

I also found value in running this little free program
when considering the effect of the installation.

I'm glad it helped,
not always sure what I've learned using my PC applies to others like yourself.

Thanks for posting back. :thumbsup:
