IS THIS JUST your way of saying the below is true?  Probably so.  If I have
to learn that much about the internal technical workings of my video card to
install this beast, then it is too much for me (and probably 98% of the
planet).  But thanks for the response.

If anyone else has any concrete steps I can take to fix this, let me know.
