I picked up a 360 meg computer with one minor problem. Its a vga. Loaded aol DSL just fine and otherwise appears ok. But the video is YUK!

When installing a video card how do you do this if you remove the old card?

I am looking for procedure advice...

Ahh so without the drivers I will still get enough video to get it working? Thanks so much. I couldnt figure out how to lad drivers with no video. I am learning ad having some fun but it can be frustrating,

I wonder if the existing card is SVGA running without a driver? Its VGA only... How could I tell?

One of my scarier moments was when I upgraded to a new MB and PCI video card four or five years ago. When I opened up (I think) Wordperfect for DOS 6(?) all I got was a blue screen. Scared the heck out of me. I finally remembered I needed to run through Wordperfect's setup to tell it about the new card. At least today when Win(whatever) knows about a new card pretty much everything else does too.
