Default Help me Please.

I just upgraded my 9200 to a 6600gt. After I did that I tried to upgrade my brotherís comp with my older 9200. I installed it as usual opening the case etc. I turned on the computer and I logged on Windows XP. It logged and went to ati.com to download the drivers. While I was downloading the drivers I went and changed the color quality to 32bit then all of a sudden the screen went black and the monitor didn't recognize it.

So I restart the computer and it turns on with no problem, right after the windows logo pops up the monitor goes black like I previously mentioned.

Specs
GateWay E-4200
256 mb sdram
Pentium 3

can't access more specs because monitor always goes black.

Boot in safe mode, you corrupted your video drivers. Boot in safe mode and uninstall the drivers. Reboot and then install the new drivers. Reboot again and you're good to go.

Um, did you say you bought a 6600GT and got ATi drivers? I think that may be your problem...
