What motherboard and chipset?
What beeps (if any) did the PC make.
As this is likely a hardware issue more details are needed

In the BIOS there is a often an option to choose the primary video option. It is probably set to AGP.

My disasterous week has involved 2 computers - one with a similar problem. Tried to change the driver for a GEForce 2MX (had installed a nearly right one but not quite right) and the system hung.

I discovered a few things along the way and it's now working.

First, this site: http://www.nvidia.com/ has drivers for the disk.

GE Force MX2 www.nvidia.com /
Download drivers
Windows 95/98/ME
Detonator XP

Detonator is an 8Mb executable file that will sort out what you need and install it.

Put back old card
Download the file
Switch off
Put in new card
Restart in safe mode
Run this file.

NOTE: All care, no responsibility! As our computer had recently been reformatted I did it again from scratch so I haven't tried the safe mode method.
