Win7 wont boot after installed new video card

Specs: Windows 7 Ultimate/WinXPMCE2005, 2ghz AMD 1gb ram
hi all, i just installed this card: http://www.jaton.com/VGA/graphics_c...
as you can see it has win7 support, MS also conforms it: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/co...

I have reinstalled windows, drivers, everything i can think of. still same thing. the computer has a dual boot of 7 and xp, *the card works flawlessly under XP.* windows 7 will either not boot and hang at a black screen, or BSOD and restart.
thx in advanced, i am becoming very inpatient with this da** thing.

If you remove the card and boot into Windows 7 what happens?

If you can't boot into Windows 7 how did you install the drivers?

Did the computer run Windows 7 before you installed the Jaton card?

Do you have a card reader or any external storage devices inserted/ connected?

the computer has an on board VGA as well. the card works in 7 without any drivers present, or safemode, thats how installed drivers. I tried to install windows vista as well to see if it works, but the same thing happens. and yes theres a built in card reader.
if i remove the card windows 7 boots normally. also works in safemode.

The Windows 7 driver on the install CD may be bad or corrupt, or may have been written before one of the last updates from MS. Try getting the latest driver from their website.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

You need to post the model of the computer or if custom built the motherboard model and other specs.

i think you may need to disable the onboard video chip, or set it as the second option in the bios, look for the vga/pciexpress option as first choice.

i hate computers!

This is not really a helpful answer but...

I recently purchased the same card, AGP and everything for a newly upgraded to Win7 computer, with the same results. Customer support was no help; after researching elsewhere, and trying numerous drivers (5+, Some actually booted, only to crash upon opening anything.) I have come to the conclusion that Nvidia Geforce 6200 + Win7 = total fail.

(Simply Google Nvidia Geforce 6200 Windows 7 to see what I mean.)

I returned the card, and actually downgraded to an older video card, works fine for now, until I can shell out more for a nice, working, card.
