I just replaced my old on board standard VGA graphics adapter with a NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 Video Card and upgraded to 2 GB of RAM in order to support Vista. I had no problems with the installation and the computer is much faster. However, we are a non profit and do a lot of Powerpoint (Microsoft Office 2007) presentations for fundraisers and I notice this morning that we've lost some functionality options within the software (fades, wipes, etc.) and the transitions are choppy and poor? I had this function before and the fades were much nicer?

Should I disable the old standard VGA graphics adapter (there's an exclamation point next to it in Device Manager and Vista can't tell me what's wrong other than in can't load)?

Any thoughts?

Yes I would try to disable it. If that doesn't help try to remove any of the old video drivers. My computer wont show the onboard card with my Nvidia card plugged in. So I had to take out the new Nvidia card uninstall all video drivers, put the Nvidia card back in and reinstall the Nvidia drivers.

 May not be the cause but good place to start.
