Hi. Is this a PCI, PCI-E, or AGP card? What is the speed of it (6X, 8X, 32X, etc.)? Can the computer handle this much power (X)?

When you installed the graphics card, did you disable the on-board graphics in the BIOS? This sounds like the motherboard may have automaticallydisabled the on-board graphics, but you did not install the video cards drivers. So there is a conflict between the on-board graphics drivers and the video card. You can try hitting the F8 key while booting up to see if you can get into safe mode. If you can do this you can see if you can remove the on-board graphics drivers thru add/remove programs. Windows should reboot back to regular mode using the basic microsoft drivers so you can install the Nvidia drivers.
