    Did you load the CD that the new video card came with?

    What happened when Windows said "found new hardware" after it was installed?

    Right-click My Computer and choose Properties. Then go to "Hardware" tab and click "Device Manager". Next click the '+' sign next to "Display Adapters" and list the entries you have under that heading.
    Also in the WHOLE list, do you have any entries with exclamation points '!' or red 'X' or other symbols?

    Next, you can go on to www.ati.com and download the latest Catalyst driver. In the downloads section, scroll down to "low speed" downloads and get JUST the drive and control panel. This is the link to the Windows XP section:

    Then try installing the new driver and control panel. CP goes AFTER the driver.
    Also make sure you have the latest Directx.

    There's a start. Good luck.
