If so, downsize during restore. Also duplicate the restore CD just in case it's not reading proper. Always a good idea to have duplicates of CDs you can't lose.
Yesterday I tried to uninstall my previous graphics card (NVIDIA GeForce 8500) to install a new one, Saphire Radeon X1650. However, in doing so I accidentally uninstalled some motherboard drivers as that is also NVIDIA. I have now reinstalled all the drivers on the motherboard CD BUT it is coming up with error messages when loading:
Initially it is saying "fail to load nvcpl.dll", and then stating that there is a problem with SW20.exe and it must close. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the graphics card, reinstalling the motherboard drivers again and eventually tried the Windows XP recovery disc. However during the recovery it stated it could not copy the apr9t8dk.sys file and had to abort the recovery. Does anyone have any idea what I've done?!
My motherboard is the ASUS M2N4-SLI. The main problem is that I cannot get into the 'display' folder in the control panel and thus cannot set up my new graphics card properly. Hope someone can help!
