Hmm, it should default to MS VGA drivers.
You can try to turn off PC power (unplug), disconnect monitor from card,
take the graphics card out of its port (AGP or PCI); insert it back, connect
monitor, restart - might work if RC1 detects a "new" card and defaults to
VGA to search for "new hardware." If you have another video card around, try
that. If you have onboard graphics and a graphics slot, install a card
Otherwise, boot from some CD OS; RC1 has tools to recover files/ system -
run chkdsk, or use Knoppix etc. Save whatever you need to save and repair or
