I recently was given an old 2.53Ghz Pentium 4 Packard Bell desktop to fix up. So I re-installed Windows XP without a hitch. However both before and after the install the computer displays a message on first startup saying 'video mode not supported'. It did not appear to be causing problems until I installed the graphics card driver, I think the card was an nvidia gforce 400 64mb.
Anyway after I installed the driver the monitor kept intermittently blacking out every 10 seconds or so then coming back (the monitor always remained on though as the light never went off), some of the graphics were displaying wrong too and looked messed up. I know it is the correct driver as it is from the packard bell website. Anyway I uninstalled it and and with the generic drivers everything seems to work fine, however I obviously get the new hardware wizard on start up. Any one how I can fix this?
Also just a note the monitor cable is weird it has both a standard vga connector and a usb port too..
Any help much appreciated
