new graphics card issues

Specs: Windows Vista (32-bit)
about a month ago my computer crashed and whenever i started it up i would see random colored dots appear all over the screen, figuring it was the graphics card i removed it (nvidia Geforce 6300 128 MB's) when i did, the screen was fine after starting it up again, i was running on an integrated graphics card with only 8 MB's though so i couldn't do much. I went out and bought a Galaxy GeForce 220 graphics card with 1 GB and also installed a new power system, i installed it and downloaded the drivers but when i restarted it it didn't load windows, i can run it in safe mode but that's it, i think there might be a problem with the drivers?

Did u un-install igp & old 6300 drivers?
why new psu? 220 use low power so no need for new psu.

Yeah, the 220 is a low end, low power card, not a gamer. The power supply upgrade probably wasn't necessary. Did you pay at least $50 for the new one?

i got a new power supply because when i was first having problems i called the technical support on the card and they said i didn't have enough wattage (300W) so i got a 500W and it works fine up until i install the drivers, then the same problem happened, and i tried uninstalling the old drives, i went into add/remove programs and removed "nvidia drivers", i restarted but when i did the OS automatically installed new drivers for something and i got the same problem
