Do it again! I've had it work lots eg asus m2n?-vmx asus m2npv-vm etc.
Did you check nvidia? vs nv or vesa
Is your monitor properley interrogated? ensure decent hsync and vsync options
PS re-installing will not help you! vesa driver is installed AND one of my
monitors (Viewmaster 1280x1024 LCD) installs 640x480 and its nearly
impossible to install blind!
Toolbar to side and some guesses!
