I recently did a clean install of Windows xp. I had to reinstall all of the drivers and stuff, and i had some problems with the drivers for my video card (EVGA 7950 GT KO) I have two video cards installed, that one, and another, an MX4000 i think. Well my computer used to run off of the MX through untill windows booted up, and then it would switch over to the 7950. I wanted to set this up again, or even better just use the 7950 at the primary. I installed the drivers, and i set the 7950 to be my primary. My computer then reset itself. My 7950 still is not the primary, the MX is. It will load up windows, and then i get a blue screen (which i cannot read) and it resets again. It just keeps doing this over and over again.

What did i do wrong? How can i set the 7950 to be my primary, and ONLY card, and how do i stop the blue screen and the resetting.

If you need any other information please let me know.

... -sigh- Thank you... Worked perfectly.


lowl. I have wanted to remove it for some time now, but it always had a way of... "sticking" I could never get it out of the freaking slot. I would take the screw out, and it would get stuck, and i didn't want to damage it, so i just left it in there. I unscrewed it this time, gave it a slight tug, and it came right out. Now i can get back to reinstalling all the software. Thanks again!
