I disabled onboard video, shut the machine off, installed video card, turned machine on and it booted up fine, XP home recognized the card and installed it. I changed diplay from 400x600 to 600x800, clicked apply and the computer shut itself off, i turned it back on and it now only goes to the very first splash screen, doesnt make it to where you see primary slave, secondary bla bla bla.
I shut it off and took out the new video card, started up the machine and went into bios and set computer to use onboard video. it accepted it. restarted and it is still doing what i stated above. Could i have damaged the harddrive somehow?????
I should note that the Dell Demension 2400 is only 4 days old.
thanks in advance.
