I've got my new system up an running.. Sorta.. I've got Vista and XP installed, and can boot into either without a hitch. My problem is with my video card. Geoforce 8800GTS. As soon as I install the driver for it (in either windows, or XP), the OS will look like it's booting (says windows is starting) then I get a prompt from my monitor saying No signal. I have to boot back into my OS and rollback the driver in order to enable my display again. Mobo is a Gigabyte P35-DS4. I have installed all the drivers for my motherboard, and am using the current drivers for the video card from Nvidia's website. There is one caveot... I'm using a phillips Flat screen TV that doubles as a monitor. It's not a "plug and play" monitor. It does have a dedicated pc mode, and has worked fine until this. I think I'll be very happy with this system once I (we) get this kink worked out.

It seems my Philips flat screen tv/monitor was the culprit. I bought a new monitor. My new system is running like a scalded ape with hemroids.

Thanks for all the advice prior to my purchase.

Well I'm glad you got it sorted! You certainly had me doing a lot of thinking, but I didn't post cause I didn't know :)

Cheers :)
