Repairing the connection isn't a magic wand, that you should have to wave it
repeatedly over and over. If you have to do this over and over you have
something wrong.

If you install a new card, make sure that the drivers for the old card are not
present. Each different manufacturer installs drivers in a different way - make
_very_ sure that there are not any traces from another driver when you are using
any one card.

And make sure that you have the most current drivers, for any card, gotten from
the vendor of the card.
