nVidia driver installation failure in Win XP
Posted on 2010-11-30
I am having problems installing a replacement video card in a Win XP PC.
I have installed a new nVidia GeForce GT220 video card made by Galaxy in a Windows XP 32 bit PC. After installing the video card and driver, I am prompted to reboot. However, the PC locks up in the loading Windows XP stage. It just sits there with the black Windows XP splash screen displayed.
I then downloaded the latest nVidia driver from Galaxy. I went back into Windows in Safe Mode, uninstalled all video drivers from Add/Remove Programs and the Device Manager, rebooted, reinstalled the latest driver - same problem.
The motherboard is an Intel DP35DP. I tried reinstalling the Chipset driver and repeating the above process - same problem.
