Hi, I just bought a PCI Video Card for my computer because my computer's DVD playback quality is terrible (very choppy). But when I tried to install it, the monitor is just black, not thing appeared...
VISIONTEK 64MB GEFORCE2 SDR PCI VGA
Below is link to my computer's specs:
HP Pavilion PC Model 6642F
I tried to uninstall the onboard graphics chipset according to the instruction (linked below), but the darn thing keep re-install itself when I got to the part "restart Window". So I disable it and install the new VISIONTEK. When I turn my computer on, the monitor just stay black...I pulled the VISIONTEK video card out, reboot the computer and everything went back to normal. I tried this several times and the results are the same.
