    after i install the vga, the computer told me to restart
    after i restart, the problem comes again and i have to choice but to force restart. After i force restart, i go to safe mode to uninstall the nividia driver den i will restart.

    One of the Safe Mode options is "Enable VGA Mode".

    Have you tried this?

    On the Safe Mode option screen:

    Assuming you press F8 on boot?

    Rather than Safe Mode choose VGA Mode

    Sorry the Vista designation is:

    Enable low resolution video (640 × 480)

    Were you able to boot into Vista proper? sans Safe Mode?

    If so your resolution is just very large.

    If so I would try to install the nVidia driver here.

    Try the last one we had:

    GeForce Release 179

    OK. Go back into Safe Mode. You should be prompted to enter Safe Mode or go to System Restore.

    Try System Restore. If you get there choose a Restore date prior to your problems. See what happens. Can't hurt.

    If you choose Safe Mode you should be prompted to Restore.

    If not in Safe Mode click: start > all programs > accessories > system tools > system restore

    Look at the calender.

    Next to January you see:

    Sorry :(

    I am so used to XP I forget the changes:

    Windows Vista System Restore Guide

    That being said I assume there are no previous points.

    Again we enter tedious waters.

    You could reinstall Vista as townsbg suggested or you could buy support from BenQ:

    BenQ USA - Service&Support

    I would look at your BenQ DVD and see what options are available.

    Repair; restore; drivers; etc.

    There might be something in there to help.

    I, myself am about ready to crash but I will be back tomorrow similar time.

    Just to let you know.
