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.

Suggestion:
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.
