    the first thing i do to this machine is take out the ATi card it came with and put in a geforce. now every time it starts up, i get an ati warning saying the desktop loader cant load, and to remove the ati drivers permanently use add/remove programs.

    well, when i try that (add remove programs), i get an error message saying "Unable to uninstall older or non-ATI display drivers."

    what the hell? i tried this in safe mode with the same result.

    any suggestions??

    Reformat that shit. You don't have anything important on it yet and you can get rid off all of Dell's pre-installed junk.

    The first thing you should do is return the dell and get your money back. Then, make a new thread and buy a decent machine.

    Did you put the old card back in and then try to uninstall the drivers?
