    Here're two ways I can suggest you,
    I will try installing/repairing geforce 6150se nforce 430 driver. Then reinstall the VGA driver properly until removal succeeds. Remove the VGA card.
    If fail again, I will try installing/repairing the same driver, then remove the card. Uninstall the VGA driver.

    You can install the driver for the new VGA card after either one way.
    Unless problems occur, reinstalling windows should be the last step.
    I think after reinstalling your problem will be solved, otherwise contact the manufacturer - NVIDIA or where your old VGA card comes from.

    The 6150 is an onboard graphics is it not? so what card are you taking out? You will need to set the BIOS to use the new PCI-E card and not the onboard graphics.

    Hope that helps!
