Answers :

Backup as many of the programs and personal stuff that you can to cd/rw or dvd/rw otherwords stuff you dont want to lose. then restore your computer... you might have the discs that came with your pc if not there might be a restore partition on the hard drive.. you can access this only when you first restart the pc. and and continously pressing f2 hope this works for you..
Insert the recovery disc or the drivers disc that came with your desktop. reinstall the Card reader and USB 2.0. have made any changes recently in the wirings inside or any new IDE/ SATA devices? this could also be due to incorrect wirings...

I have a Dell Dimension 5100 and just bought a NVidia 8600 GT 256MB pci graphics card for it. But when I install it, my computer acts like it has a memory problem. The front error lights come on, the card's fan blows hard but the monitor doesn't respond, it's like it is still disconnected from the computer. The guys at my computer store said they looked up this card and it was supposed to be compatible, and I have seen some posts where folks seem to be running this card with this computer. Help!
