When you install a new video card you have to delete all old video drivers (of the card you're getting rid of) and just install the new one.

Are you sure everything is seated correctly? If your computer is not recognizing it, it could be a problem with the card.

As a general rule, auto detect rarely works. It's always better to manually select your video card.

Another general rule, don't go deleting folders in system 32. Sure the system might run ok, but down the road when you try and use a program it might not. Microsoft engineered and programed xp a specific way, keep it that way.

And yet another general rule, if you don't know what you're doing installing hardware, ask first. If you're the least bit un-sure of what you're doing, ask. A lot of this could've been avoided if you would've asked experienced guys how to install a GPU before just going and doing it.
