Black screen after rebooting with updated drivers

  1. After updateing the drivers on my GeForce 7600, my computer crashed and restarted. Now all i get is a black screen. I removed the card and tried using the onboard graphics, still nothing. I also put a much older trident card in and still got nothing. My moniter works with other computers, the graphics card works in a old win 98 computer i have lying around. I have no idea how to get a picture so i can try and fix the drivers...Any one have any idea?


    my setup:
    mainboard: MSI 915G combo
    Memory: 2x 1 Gig kingson DDR2
    power: AGI 500w
    HD: (1x 120G) and (1x 80G)
    graphics: MSI geForce 7600 (nx7600gs-T2d256EH)
    And I have 3 case fans so I'm farly sure The card was nice and cool, case temp stays between 65 and 75 degrees F depending how warm it is in the house

    Try resetting the motherboards CMOS by removing the silver button battery for a few minutes with the computer unplugged
