Hi,

I have just tried to install a video card - Geforce 7600 GS - but when I start up my computer it reboots after getting to the desktop.

1. I uninstalled previous drivers (Radeon x800 GT)
2. Got updated drivers fro the new card

Any suggestions please

John

Download and install driver cleaner on the link above.. run it and delete any drivers.. after that uninstall the nvidia drivers again.. Then install them again and you should have no problems at all..

What that program does is deletes any left files that could not be deleted.. Your problem happens alot when people switch from ati to nvidia and files are still left on the pc and that causes problems..

Thanks, I did all that and its still rebooting.

I couldn't install the drivers because of the revooting issue so I installed them in safe mode.

Then I rebooted and still coming up with the same issues

Any suggestions

It has to be glitchy drivers or conflicting drivers.

The only other thing I can think of would be the powersupply.

How many watts does your powersupply have?
