I am an experienced user and can normally fix my own problems...But. I have an older MSI K9AGM board and want to use a gt240. I currently have a PNY 9600GSO overclocked 768 meg card. Runs like a champ. I have 550 watt power supply but there is no donngle to card. Unlike the 9600GSO. I plug it in after I installed the PNY drivers and Windows begins to load. It freezes without displaying the four lights that become the win logo. I reset and get the system repair option so I attempt it. It freezes.
I then take the thing and put it in my kids intel p4 board.Also MSI 945GCM478-L. He is running Vista Home premium. Begins same problem after installing the PNY driver and reboot but his system repair works. Fixes problem card is great. But i can't get it in my 7 box. I have updated all drivers and I mean all. I have to wonder since my board has ATI drivers if the problem isn't the geforce versus ATI i have seen for years. But it really doesn't solve the system repair not working. Either drivers fighting or broken files and a forced reformat and reinstall.
So I throw myself on the mercy of the Great Gurus of Windows 7 world and ask for help.
Thanks in advance.
