Ok, here's my problem. I think it has happened before under different circumstances, but anyway...when trying to install a better video card, Windows seems to start up, but all I get is an 800x600 screen with my startup screen wallpaper and a functioning mouse pointer. That's it. Nothing more. It happened the first time i plugged the monitor into the new (Radeon 8500) video card, and then started doing the same thing when I reverted back to my old (nvidia nForce 2 onboard video) after uninstalling the nVidia display drivers. Oh, I think it also did it whenever I tried to boot in Safe Mode before as well. Something about VGA mode not working? Please help.
