Adding second monitor

Hi

I've just added a 2nd monitor to my Dell P4 (1.7ghz 786 ram) system with XP. Rather than buying a dual monitor card I've added a Pine 3D Phantom PCI card alongside the card that was in the pc when I bought it (RAGE 128mb or something).

The card was recognised fine, loaded up drivers etc and it all worked fine until I switched off the pc and then went back later and switched it back on. The computer won't start up unless it's in safe mode and then I have to uninstall and reinstall the new drivers each time in order to reboot.

For some reason I don't experience the same problem when I restart the computer - it switches itself off and on and again with the correct configuration - only when I manually switch off and switch on.

Any ideas?
