    Graphics Card

    I had previously purchased a video card from nVidia. I returned it for the
    following reasons:

    When I tried to install it, it would keep on saying that I had to unistall
    the previous drivers of my video card. I tried doing that and it wouldn't
    work. When they finally unistalled them, I rebooted and tried installing the
    nVidia drivers, but it still wouldn't let me. I checked on the programs menu
    on the control panel, and it was still there. Then the next time I rebooted,
    at the beggining there was display, but when the computer was ready to load
    the log-on screen, it would turn completely black. I tried to change my
    monitor the nVidia card, and it was displayed there. What was the problem?

    I was exited that it would Aero would work, but when I opened the Task
    Manager, it was still basic. It hadn't worked, so I returned it. I simply did
    a system restore, turned off the computer instead of restarting, removed the
    video card, and everything was back to normal. I just purchased one that was
    compatible online and I will recieve it next week.

    Will the same thing occur?

    Or what did I do wrong?

    That's something only the card vendor can help you with. It should have
    worked the first time. Did you try to uninstall the driver in Safe Mode?
