System reboot and lockups with AIW2006 AGP running Windows XP
System does not boot up properly and hangs without launching windows explorer. Also when I run Microsoft's Event Viewer it appears that ati2mtag is not loaded or there is an error. Also the system will hang or produce blue screen that states hardware failure with the graphics card. I am running 2GB of system memory. Pentium 4 3GHz processor and Via PT800CE North bridge and Via VT8237 south bridge chipsets. These chipsets enable AGP 8X which I am running.

The following link contains a download for the latest driver for the Volari V5 released 4/10/2006. This should work fine however as always it is reccomended that you create a system restore point incase you need to go back and undo it.
If you do need to undo the install just press F8 as windows boot, select boot to safe mode. then go into the control panel, system, device manager, select the graphics card and go to properties, go to driver, and select roll back driver. Then reboot.
Hope this helps!

Have a good day
You don't disable it in Device Manager: reenable it immediately. The correct steps to replace the video card: 1 - you uninstall its driver and reboot at least twice. 2 - You install the new card, plug the Monitor in it and reboot at least once.
3 - you enter in the BIOS and disable it in there, and only in there, and you reboot at least twice with a check in the BIOS that it has remained disabled in between. 3 - you install the new driver.
sounds like yo had the same Probles that I had with my 5200 geforce The install did not go well. what was happening was the direct x was binding to the old mother board graphics system and not the new card . to make it rebind just change the refresh rate in the nvidia icon in your task bar . disable the display adapter from device manager for the motherboard graphics .put the card in the slot change the montior cord boot up check you direct x by typing in run dxdiag and test directx to be sure it is runing with your card you can also see that fron the about nvidia you must have the driver for the card installed to do all this.. hope I helped
remove the card, go to setup utility in disply mode section use the AGP or PCI disply setiings or auto then save settings. turn of pc, install the card and then reboot, this time system will boot up, actually system boots but no display is being given.
HELLO THERE You may want to boot into bios and see if the video display is set to agp or pci and change it from their than save and reboot and if that does not help boot into the safe mode and uninstall the update and if needed reinstall the card,,, geforce has been having a problem with these updates and depending on your operating system it can be non compatable so, please try these solutions ok best regards michael
If your monitor is showing weird colors before the Windows XP welcome screen then it might be that your monitor is bad. Try hooking up a different monitor and see if the colors look fine as the computer is booting up, if it does then you know the original monitor is bad, if the colors still look weird then you know your video card is going bad.
As far as the lockups are concerned, with the computer turned off, take out the memory. With a can of air, blow some on the contacts of the memory and into the memory slots on the motherboard. You want to do this to make sure that there is no dust or dirt cause that can cause lockups to happen.
If your new video card has a power connector, make sure it is connected to a power plug. If you already did that, it's possible your PC's power supply doesn't have enough power to run all your connected equipment.
To get your old card running, hit F8 repeatedly during boot-up until you get the boot options. Select VGA mode. It should boot up properly then.
Once booted into VGA mode, set your screen resolution to something simple like 1024x768 or 800x600, then reboot.
If that doesn't work, try hitting F5 repeatedly during boot-up to boot into Safe mode. You can then adjust your settings again there.
