Pretty serious problem here and I can use some help.
I have an Abit TH7-II mainboard and I upgraded the processor from 1.7Ghz to a 2.53GHz processor. I upgraded the m/b BIOS, installed the CPU, changed the Smartmenu settings and everything worked just fine. (Doom 3 Alpha ran like a dream I mght add.)
I decided to a fresh install of Windows XP Pro because it was long overdue. I formatted my main drive, booted from CD and installed XP. Everything was fine until I installed the video drivers for my Visiontek TI4600 using nVidia's 40.72 drivers. When I restarted my computer after installation, I would post, see the XP splash screen and then I would get a black screen and it just sits there...and the monitor is not standby mode and all activity has halted. I changed drivers all the way back to the 30.82 set and I get the same results.
