Boot the PC then keep tapping the F8 key until you get the options screen, select safe mode with networking to go here for everest home

http://www.lavalys.c...p?pid=1&lang=en

click + next to computer then summary, see which video adapter you have the go to the manufacturers site to get the latest drivers, save it to disk as you may not get it to install in safe mode

If you have the software already for the video card then you can use that, though the ones from the manufacturers site will be the latest ones.
