This morning i received an Nvidia Geforce 210 for X-mas to replace my computer's stock 8600GT. The first attempt at installing went as follows; I turned off my computer, I replaced the card, booted it up and tried to install the drivers from the disc. Seeing as that was the extent of the manual install instructions, I figured i was done, so I tried running WoW to test. Immediately on the log in screen the decrease in performance was apparent. Then I ran windows performance info and discovered that my graphics and gaming graphics score had dropped (by how much I'm not sure). I have since tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers and rebooting many times in different orders but to no effect. And now I can't even seem to get my old card working at all.
