    help

    I recently got a new video card for my dad because he's getting into drafting and he wanted dual monitors, well he couldnt wait till I got home and installed the video card himself as well as the drivers without deleting the old drivers first...and well now there is no video...

    I contacted the company that made the card but I can't get thru to someone I can understand.

    Any help is appreciated

    Uninstall both sets of drivers and start from scratch is the first thing I would do.

    If its got integrated video disable it.

    Have you tried to boot into safe mode? If I'm not mistaken, safe mode will use Microsoft's generic drivers for video and then you should be able to remove the others. If I'm wrong with this advice please correct me please anyone.

    Remove the new card and reinstall / enable the old. That should force it to boot with the stock generic drivers. Then remove both sets and try again.

    Sound advice. You could also try resetting your bios just for grins.

    Undo as much of what you just did as you can. (Which is basically what Tazz said)
