If there is an onboard video, disable it via jumper and/or BIOS. Clear CMOS memory first and then disable OB Video, if any. If you had the Windows screen up before you loaded drivers it seems to me that there's a conflict w/the drivers.

It might be best to reformat HD and install OS again and load only the drivers it prompts you forfor the time being.

Thanks Happy Hillbilly.The solution ended up being, installing the 4in1 drivers for Via chipset.After installation everything went good.
