Hello, My stepson has an old Compac sr2020nx desktop. He wanted some games on it, so I got an EVEG 8400GS video card for it. I uninstalled the on-board graphics and installed the card. The card was used but guaranteed to work. I downloaded the drivers from NVidia and installed them. Everything OK so far. After restart, the computer goes through compac screen, windows load screen, then back to compac screen, then to screen saying windows didn't load properly, i tell it to load windows again and the cycle repeats. I uninstalled all the old drivers before i installed the card. any thoughts, or am i beating a dead horse here.

I should also include that it will start in safe mode, so i sure it's a driver issue, but not sure of a solution, if there is one.
