Problem with Alienware

I have an Area 51 m5500 with XP Pro, and an Invidia 6600 (may actually be a 6000, I'll have to check my manual at home).

Updated the driver, sorry don't remember which one I used, because the card wouldn't support the resolution of a new display,

which is pretty strange since it's a really small, low res display.

Anyway after updating I get the bluescreen of death.

Now I'm forced to use the onboard Intel graphics, which amizingly does support the 1280 X 800 res on the monitor!

So 2 questions:

1: Which driver should I use for my Invidia card?

2: How the heck do I roll back to my old driver, when I can't even boot to the Invidia card, and it doesn't show up in device manager?

Boot in VGA mode. Press F7 or F8 (can't remember :) ) during startup a number of times should bring up a menu that allows this.

Then visit the FAQ section of this board, read the instructions, dl a new driver + inf and you're set :)
