I have an old Mesh PC running Windows XP with a GeForce 256 graphics card. Once logged on, the display keeps blacking out for a few seconds on a regular basis. I've changed the refresh rate, tried two different monitors, started the pc in safemode, but to no avail. This only seems to happen once Windows has loaded.
I suspected it was the graphics card. There is no onboard graphics, but I have a very old basic ATI Rage Pro card I could try in it. What's the best install procedure? I believe I have to disable or uninstall the display adapter for the current card then shut down, replace the cards and boot up. Is this correct?
