  1. Hey there, I just finished reinstalling windows xp pro on my pc and it switched back to the original video built into the mother board. after getting windows installed and running i tried installing the video card I normally used, the computer detected it but then the screen suddenly went black. I turned off my pc and took out the video card and plugged my monitor back into the original slot and it worked just fine. Anyone know why this is happening to me? I also reinstalled windows xp home a long time ago but never had a problem with the video card.

    First thing that I think is your video card may not work anymore. Your onboard video is ok and your card should give you a picture of some kind. Do you have a friend with a pc that you may try your 9200 in? Good Luck.
