Okay, found it but when you right click it only gives you the option to uninstall. Should I uninstall??

I uninstalled it and it asked to restart and when it came back up - same problem. It flashed the Welcome screen and then went dark while the machine is busy doing something for quite some time now.

this time when it restarted the first third of the screen (with the START(MS logo)is occupying the rightmost third of the screen. Really weird. Sounds like a graphic card issue.

OK lets bypass the video drivers

Restart your computer and press then hold F8 (as if going to safe mode menu)
From the menu select VGA mode - let me know how that fares

F2 gives me an option to hit F8 which then has a bunch of options and the only one about video is start with low resolution. I did that and so far it seems to be stuck on the Welcome screen

How about DLL's could this be a dll issue? Is there a link somewhere where I could go to update my dll's?

Does this computer also have an onboard graphics ? If so could you remove the video card and see if that resolves it

I don't think so. If I disconnect the monitor cable then connect it to what? I have a Dell Optiplex GX620

Did you put this video card in ?

As according to the specs it may have an integrated graphics chip

integrated Intel Graphic Media Accelerator 950 or PCI Express x16 graphics card

If it was an integrated card then there would be a second connector on the back - if it is not there then it is not integrated.

Can you borrow a video card and swap it out with your one to test ?
