    No luck, it would appear my 8-year-old graphics card requires an AGP slot which the Dell does not have.

    Ahh...what a nightmare.. Have you tried popping the original one back in and trying the install again?

    Yes I have! I did that a couple of times yesterday as well, same result every time.

    I guess my only option is to get hold of a video card and test it out, some time after the weekend.

    I only wonder if maybe windows 7 has something to do with it, or the fact that I switched to 64 bit.

    Thanks a million for the help and advice though!
