Help - I messed up!

  1. I put a PCI 3d Fuzion geforce 6200 in my lads medion earlier on today, after doing all that the manual said about disabling the onboard graphics and resetting the BIOS, but It simply wouldn't load the driver software, no matter what I tried, and crashed the PC ever time i tried to reload it.
    So I came to the conclusion that I had to disable the standard graphics adapter as that was the only thing left which i hadn't tried and it said in the manual that was what i had to do. bad move.

    Now nothing works. I can get the Bios screen up, and the Windows start up screen comes on, but nothing else - the monitor is getting a signal, but the screen is blank.
    I've taken the BIOS battery out to reset it, but that didn't make any difference.


    Any idea how I get back to the original settings, so I can start again (or better yet find someone who knows what he's doing to sort it out?)

    Try another PCI card -then, if you get into the OS, fix your mistake.

    edit: HAS to be a different card

    :)
