I forgot - I am running Windows 7 64-bit
I am trying to install a PNY geforce gt220 graphics card in my computer. The problem: When I first boot up with the card windows starts normally, but at a low resolution, any the drivers are installed. When I restart the computer after this (per instructions) the windows symbol comes up, disappears, at at the point where the login screen usually appears the screen is simply a very dark blue (as it is between those two screens) until finally a blue screen comes up with the message
"Attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed."
I can start the computer in safe mode, but it will not start normally unless I uninstall all of the drivers, at which time the process begins again.
The computer starts and runs normally if I switch the monitor to the VGA port that was already on the computer and reboot.
What I have tried:
-installing several different versions of the Nvidia driver
-install the latest directx
-un and reseating the card
