Default Installing new video card problem

I have just purchased the following video card, Nvidia TNT2 16MB M64 PCI Video Card, in the hope that I can use dual monitors.

The problem is when trying to find a driver for the video card, it says "The hardware was not installed because the wizard cannot find the necessary software. This means that the video card isn't properly installed and in device manager there is a ? next to it.

I have tried downloading this driver: http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_2k_61.77.html
It says it is for the TNT2 cards.

Is there a different driver I need to download? Suggestions would be much appreciated.

My computer specs are here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/g...reg_R1002_UKEN

My other video card is a NVDIA GeForce4 MX 440.

Thanks.

I've had similar problems with trying to get drivers of the Nvidia site, the best thing to do is to get the model number, and use google to find a 3rd party site and use those drivers.

Well apparently those two cards don't run together, so that is the problem.

Can anyone recommend a video card that runs with my current NVDIA GeForce4 MX 440?
