Weirdest video card problem ever?
Ok, so I'm a novice, but recently I upgraded the hard drive on my ancient Dell desktop (running Windows XP) and after installing drivers, etc. my nvidia Geforce mx4000 is haywire. I've installed driver 93.71 and here's the deal:
When the computer boots, the startup sequence is visible only id my monitor is plugged into the video card. But the welcome screen and the full operating system is then only visible when the monitor is plugged into the computer's original monitor outlet!
And it doesn't matter if I uninstall the nvidia driver, the result is exactly as above. Any ideas? I can't seem to find this problem or its answer anywhere on any website...
