Question about PNY GeForce 7600 GS, (512 MB) AGP Graphic Card
The error message says primary hard disk failure. Before the error message occurs the new card info (text) is displayed on the screen for a few seconds. I had a radeon 9700 Pro 128MD AGP go bad and replaced it with a PNY 7600 GS 512MB. Running XP on a Dell PC that is 6 years old. I also tried uninstalling the driver to the old graphics card. When I put the old card back in the AGP slot the computer starts up but the display is messed up. Please let me know if there is other things I can try.
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.

click start control panel administrive tools computer management then select event viewer depending on what operating sytem you have this may vary
extend the events there you will see errors in red you will no what exactly what the error was and at what time it occured you might have to uninstall then reinstall the program and its files
If it's a ntdll.dll error the ntdll.dll error only displays when you use a specific software program,
uninstall the program, reboot your computer, and then install the latest version again from scratch.
until you know what the problem is you cant fix it or you might try
you could run the check disk utility
click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to repair any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive this should schedule to happen
