Just changed my video card from NVidia 5200 (pci) to an NVidia 8500 GT(pci-e). Before doign anything, I updated the driver, atleast ran through everything on the disk that it said to do. The new card reads everything decently up until the point of windows. I get the basic windows loading screen, after that, the screen goes dark, monitor still seems to be on, and I can hear the windows loading noises. So it's running fine. Alternatively, I have no onboard video card as its a custom built pc. And for not being at home, best specs on motherboard, if it is needed: Winfast NF4SK8AA Motherboard Any assistance would be fine as I work from home and this is the only means that I have.
