I bought a new grphic card upgrade for my computer last night and i followed every step according to the instrustions, and my system met the requirements to run properly. when i restarted my computer to switch to the new graphic card, all seemed well. Once i got to the windows loading screen with the little progress bar that loops around, it froze after 15 or more laps around and i cannot get my computer to boot any way possible. i have tried safe mode, which just brings up a system 32 error accross my screen, as well as repairing windows which also fails. any help?

Re: Windows Xp SP2 prpgress bar freezing
You must uninstall the drivers of your old card before installing the new card and drivers.
Also make sure the BIOS is set to automatically check what you are using, onboard video (if available) or graphics card.

Bad or conflicting drivers. First go in the BIOS and disable the onboard card. Then boot into Safe mode and uninstall all the ATI drivers you can find in Device Manager then reboot normally. Finally install the newest driver from here
WOW. Uh, no offense, but your tech is kinda...ancient. Your card won't work likely because XP does not support anything that old. If you want my opinion, ditch your entire setup and buy some Alienware or something, and get new replacement cards, and install windows 7. Alternatively, you could always try to downgrade back to 98SE, but that would mean that you could not use some programs that were designed for xp.You're kinda stuck here. If 98SE was installed on your computer when you bought it, i SERIOUSLY recommend following my opinion. Don't bother calling ATI and asking for help; they discontinued those more than a decade ago. An alienware computer likely has literally THOUSANDS of times the processing power, storage, and speed.
I think the best option for you is to Upgrade to Pinnacle Studio 14 which is $0, or Pinnacle Studio 14 Ultimate, which costs $70. An upgrade is cheaper than buying the entire version which will cost you about $130. The upgrade will work with Windows 7, Windows Vista (SP2), Windows XP (SP3).
On the other hand, if a program cannot be run under Windows 7 because of compatibility issues, you can right click on the executable file that will start the application and click Properties. Select Compatibility tab and check the Windows version you know the program worked with before. This will make it run as if it was running in Windows XP. You can find more about this Compatibility issue on Microsoft website: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-AU/windows-vista/Make-older-programs-run-in-this-version-of-Windows
