Re: Turning on problem
Hi there, you might of downloaded the wrong driver, i.e it was to powerfull for your screen and blew the bulb.
what i can sugguest is try to put a boot disc in and turn everythink of.
if not try a cold system reset, take out the plug charger and better, leave it for 30mins then keep your finger on the power button for 30secs, leave it for another 5, and replace battery etc and see if that works.

Hey, did you first uninstall the former driver before installing the updated one? You needed to delete all the initial failed drivers. From that explanation, If your card works fine (Was it working well before?), then you must have installed the wrong operating system drivers, so make sure you have the right OS drivers. Tell if things fail...
