I've had this problem for quite some time now, and believe I have tried everything. This is my first post on this forum, but i've been reading through related issues for quite some time (if i've missed one that relates to my problem and you think it could help, please recommend it to me).

This 'problem' occurs when I install any of the Nvidia drivers for my GeForce 4 MX 420, about 3 seconds after booting up windows after the install of drivers, the screen starts flashing black and then the most annoying part, the monitor loses signal, the light on the monitor goes amber, and you never see the light of day (or desktop) again (until you restart and then the same thing happens again).

When the drivers are uninstalled (eventually), the problem goes away and everything is fine ...except for the fact that you can't really do anything. I have tried replacing almost every other driver that is possible to be replaced and there has been no change.

I have tried all the older drivers and the same thing happens... Any ideas?

Bad card would be my first guess.
