Hey guys I am hoping someone can help me,

I am setting up my old gaming rig for my girlfriend, I've just done a fresh install of windows xp media center edition (don't ask). I went to install my nvidea display drivers and once they had installed I was prompted to restart, so I did.

When the system rebooted nothing was displayed on the screen, I was stumped at first but then I hooked my monitor up to my on board motherboard gpu instead and there came up the display.

In device manager I don't see the video card at all. I'm not sure how to remove the drivers that were obviously a problem and I am not sure how to get windows to detect the video card again.

I think I got it. I had to turn the computer off, physically take the video card out of my computer. Turn it back on. Turn it off again, but the video card back in and then it figured out it.

Moral of the story, don't install 500 series drivers into your 200 series graphics card.
