Try booting up in Safe Mode (F8 after the memory run) and go to control panel - device manager and remove all video and monitors as well.
When reinstalling the drivers - make sure that your monitor is P&P or if you have a monitor description to use that.

If none of the above works please post the Sisv6326.inf here.

Have you had another video card previously installed on this system?  Some video cards have custom plug-ins to the display control panel -- and if you change the video card and don't uninstall the old video card software, that could easily cause a problem.

Go to "Add/Remove Programs" in control panel and see if you see any display applications not specifically for the card you're using now.  If so, try removing them.

If that doesn't cover it, go to the "c:\winnt\inf" directory and open any "oem*.inf" files (where * will be a number indicating what order that OEM driver was installed in).  Find any that pertain to any video cards and delete both the oemX.inf and the matching oemX.pnf (if it exists).  Then go to device manager and remove all display devices.  Use safe mode if you can't use regular mode like shekerra mentioned above.  Reboot.  When it comes back up, the bad driver won't be able to auto-reinstall.  Then try using built-in drivers (go to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com to get all the latest drivers and patches Microsoft has released).  If the problem doesn't happen with the built-in driver(s), then it's a driver problem.  Don't use the bad driver again -- if your display isn't supported by Microsoft drivers, check with the manufacturer of your video card to see if they have updated drivers.

Check http://www2.driverguide.com/cgi/dfsearch2.pl (the same site that shekerra mentioned). This is a list of that drivers submitted by members. I noticed that none are listed for Win2000. Is your card supported by Win2K?
