Question about ASUS EN7900GT/2DHT/256M GeForce® 7900 GT, (256 MB) PCI Express Graphic Card
Hi. My computer is Dell 8400 Dimension, windows XP. bought about a year and a half ago I bought a new card, ASUS EN7950 GT 512MB and tried to install it. I deleted my old VGA driver, (x300) and turned the computer off, plugged the new 7950gt (with auxilary power cables plugged), and turned my computer on. The moment when my computer was on, the monitor got pixilated, with green stripes and purple stripes. most of all, It WOULDN'T GO PAST THE xp loading bar. strange Changing green pattern appears and my computer goes blank, and that blue screen appears saying: something about nv4_disp how the device got stuck into an infinite loop and how the problem might be the hardware itself or the driver in charge of the hardware. I can't even get to setting up the drivers of 7950 cause it can't get to windows XP. I tried VGA and Safe mode, but it doesn't install there. I believe that somehow the drivers of my old ATI card isn't clearly deleted (but i deleted it using control panel and checked with device manager and it was gone) and was clashing with the new nvidia card.. Help please..
Your PSU isn't the problem. 350W is more then enough to run the video card into windows... Windows isn't 3d accelerated meaning the video card can run in it without the video card's power supply intact. Like Beni said, go into your Bios and disable your old WGA and activate Plug and Play as your main. Hope you get this fixed :D

Hi, I think you will need to run the Dell restore disk, install the orriginal drivers and use the dell system to bootup then load the drivers the ASUS drivers then close the system, install the new card and then bootup. on doing this there will be resident drivers for the new card and it should work fine, then delete the orriginal drivers.
