New video card in old computer causes it not to boot.

RoeRoe Always to the EastRegistered User regular
I was fixing up my old HP computer with an old PCI video card, but when I go to start my computer after installing it, the computer will not go out of the windows XP graphic loading screen.

The only way I can get it to boot, is to boot it back on on-board graphics, and mess with my boot UI.

The computer specs are as follows:

Intel pentium 4 630
1 gb ram
250+ gb HD

The graphics card is an E-GEFORCE 6200 300MHZ PCI 512MB.

    Try uninstalling the old video drivers and installing the new ones in safe mode. It's also possible that the card is bad.

    Edit: Oh, and disable the onboard graphics from the bios if that's an option.
