Graphics Card Problems
Posted on 2004-10-17
I just purchased an evga geforce mx4000 pci version. I've been having ridiculous amounts of trouble installing this thing. I've spoken to tech support and the first thing that I had done wrong was not to initially disable my onboard video card. So i uninstalled all the drivers and restarted. I disabled the onboard video, put in the new card and installed the drivers. I then restarted and plugged the monitor into the video card slot. The problem I have now, is that when the computer restarts all im able to see is my desktop background. No toolbar, no icons, no anything. It lets me create a new folder on the desktop, but I'm not able to see any old ones. And i cant see any programs that i try to open. I'm not really sure where to go from here. I've updated my monitor, bios, chipset, and sound drivers. I'm running windows xp, on a dell dimension 2350 with a 1.8 ghz processor and 256 mb ram.
