Alright so i installed my video card and it worked great. Then it died because i didnt have enough power for my system. So i got a 550W PSU and once again the card worked great. But now when i start my system its all fuzzy. Meaning there are like black dots everywhere and windows was all jumbled. However safe mode worked fine, so i System Restored to a month ago because all the other points didnt do anything. IT still looks fuzzy when i boot but after that its clear. The problem occurs with my video card, i cant install the card drivers because it doesnt see any nvidia hardware. And when i try to do it manually it reconizes its a nvidia6000xt but after installing it errors out and says "access denied". PLease help... sorry, its long.

ok...well...try uninstalling the drivers for the card in device manager..and run drivercleaner (just google driver cleaner and you'll find it) run that and let it delete what it finds...then start the machine again..windows should detect the card

hey favs,
there might be a four pin plug on your gfx card. (i forget the correct name for the 4 pin connectors). On some gfx if its not plugged in the card will either not work at full potential, or wont work at all. i cant say that that would hinder your card from not being recognized by xp but it wouldnt hurt to open the case and take a look and see if there is a plug thats been missed, or if its not fitted securely.

are you sure you're starting in safe mode? a driverless graphix card looks a lot like safe mode? does it say safe mode in the corners?
