I have a Compaq Presario that has an internal video card on the motherboard. I have just installed a new video card ( Jaton Video-118PCI-64DDR-TV) as my original card that is part of my motherboard quit working properly. I disabled the old card, installed the new one, and was able to get my computer to boot up properlyl to my desktop. However, I have also been having problems with my sound card (never worked right after I my system crashed last spring). Just tonight I was able to download a fix for my sound card via Windows update. I installed the fix but when I rebooted my computer got to the screen with the W2K logo that says "Starting Windows 2000" and has the blue status line. The line will get all the way to the end and I will hear the windows start up music, but the screen never moves past the windows start up screen. Also, I couldn't get the system to boot in Safe Mode. However, if I hit F8 during start up and selected "enable VGA mode" it will start but everything is all distorted. Any suggestions? If I am not being clear or you need more info, I'll do my best with providing what information I know. Thanks for all your help!
