  1. I just tryed intalling a GeForce4 Mx440 128mb into my computer and when i turn it on it just stays asleep. I have a GeForce2 Mx400 in right now and it works fine but when i put this in it dosnt turn on. I have checked all the cables etc. and i have tryed many drivers and none of that helps.I had this card in my old computer and when i put it in it went to windows xp and then went to sleep but i finally fixed that, but now it dosnt even come up with BIOS/Windows. I am totally lost and help would be nice, Thanks.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Download Driver cleaner from

    Go into your add remove programmes and uninstall any nvidia entries.

    Then run the cab cleaner, followed by the driver cleaner.

    This will get rid of any Nvidia drivers. Now reboot your system, and let Windows install the generic vga driver.

    Shut down your system and install your new card.

    If everything`s ok when you reboot, install the Nvidia drivers for you card.
