The installer finishes, the computer reboots, but I still cannot select any decent video modes. Attempts to install the driver manually resulted in an unbootable system every time.

Is there anyone alive who knows how to get an nVidia driver to work under Windows 95? If not, I shall be forced to take drastic measures (*cough* ATI Mach 64 *cough*).

On Windows '98, you need to reinstall the GART drivers for the AGP bus ( mobo drivers ) everytime you reinstall graphics drivers. I've never had an AGP card under Windows '95, but I'm guessing 'tis the same. Without the GART drivers, your graphics card proly won't work very well.
