Re: Cant boot vista after installing graphics card.
Does your system compatible to windows vista?you said that it started when you install the graphics card?try to remove it from the program.if its still not working,try to re install your OS again and make sure that all the drivers you downloaded is compatible with win.vista..or else you have to replace your HD and start all over again.

I too was suffering this problem of the kernel driver stopping responding and restarting. ii have the GeForce 6800 GT card and what I found the problem was, was the capacitors on the card had blown open. 1500uf 6.3v, not just one or two but all four. I replaced them and card and drivers are now working okay.
This could either be a problem with the graphics driver, or a problem with the graphics card itself.
Try once more downloading the latest version of the driver from here: http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/windows/Pages/radeonmob_win7-32.aspx and installing it while your computer is running without the graphics driver turned on. Then try re-enabling the graphics driver to see if the updated driver solved the problem.
If updating the driver doesn't work, it's almost certainly a problem with the laptop's video card. If this is the case, you'll want to have it looked at by a professional, or contact Asus support directly to see if they can help you resolve the issue.
The newest driver available for your graphics card is designed for Windows Vista, but it should work with Windows 7. That does not necessarily mean that it will. I have included a link to download the driver below.
Hope this helps. Thank you for using FixYa!
if you have an older graphic card swap it out with the new or if u have onboard video use it as your video. Once you boot up uninstall the nvidia drivers and turn off pc. Now reinstall the new card and install the drivers from the CD or the new ones from the nvidia site. Dont use the windows device manager.
For this issue , You need to boot in safe mode by tapping F8 key and go to safe mode with networking (As internet works in this mode). Try installing the Driver again from the following website "http://www.nvidia.com/object/geforce_notebook_winxp_179.48_beta.html"
Download the unified Radeon drivers from ATI's website... do not use Windows update. Get the Drivers Only package. for Vista 32-bit
If you can get to the desktop: Uninstall the existing display drivers by using the remove hardware utility. Whatever they are... remove them. Reboot. Windows will try to reinstall the drivers on the next boot. If it allows you cancel the installation at any time during install do it. Run the downloaded package from ATI. Reboot.
If you can't get to the desktop: Press F8 when booting and enter safe mode with networking. Download the ATI drivers from ati.com for Vista 32-bit. Uninstall the display drivers. Reboot. Should take you to the desktop on the next boot so you can run the install program.
i don't know weathere you are awared of this or not...
to get the 32 bit graphic on 82845gv motherboard go to BIOS setting and change your video frame buffer size to 8 mb and agp aeperture to 256 mb and let the system boot... you will get 32 bit graphic with 1024 x 748 screen resolution... i have changed and believe me it is working
but only problem is that you will hardly play any game or use bubble screen saver..
It's a hardware incompatibility with windows vista. for example your graphics card on your Inspiron might not be fully supported in windows vista and your Laptop's graphics card is supported by Vista.
Most of the times we can find this incompatibility is with graphics cards. Download and install the newest drivers for your inspiron's graphics card.
I have seen your inspiron has an ATI Radeon X1300 graphics card. The windows Vista drivers can be downloaded here
