But I was able to install it before using that same graphics card. So I was thinking that it has something to do with the motherboard, but I don't know what yet.

Any suggestions?

Looks like an nvidia graphics issue.
May I suggest that you try booting the 64 bit version of VL 7.1?
If you go with the 32-bit 7.0, 90% of your 32G of memory will not be used. That would be a real shame.

you want both monitors to act as one big desktop, corect?
i use xrandr to control my monitors. for my hardware i do this

xrandr --ouptut VGA-0 auto --output LVDS auto --right-of VGA-0

that makes my extra monitor act as if it were the right side of the main monitor and both act as one big destop.
check  "xrandr --help"

Well, CUPS finally recognized my printer, but now when I try to print anything, it doesn't respond Sad, but the interesting thing is that the scanner part IS working.

Let me begin by giving some background on my situation here. I am using a computer that has a Gigabyte GA-Z77-DS3H motherboard with 32GIG of memory, a 2TB SATA hard drive, an nVidea GForce 7600 graphics card, and a HP Deskjet 1512 all-in-one printer. The sitiation in question is this: When I first installed Vector Linux 7.0 on my computer everything loaded and ran without any problems (I had a HP Deskjet 1000 printer at the time), but then I made a decision to switch over to windows (yes I know - shame on me) because I wanted to do some things relating to video, but then, for a variety of reasons, I decided to return to Vector Linux 7.0.  I did a low level format of my hard drive, inserted the Vector Linux 7.0 boot CD, and restarted my computer. When the boot prompt appeared, I pressed the "Enter" key like I did before, and it got to where I am asked to select the graphics mode to use, so like before I selected "Choose this ans X will figure it out". Now here's where things get a bit "interesting", you might say, the screen clears, and eventually shows the message "Logging on as root" - two seconds later the screen goes blank, and I can't do anything else with it, and the same thing happened no matter which graphics mode I selected. I figured out that I had to type "install" at the boot prompt to get it to load, which I didn't have to do before.

And my point in mentioning all this, I can hear you ask is simply this - to be able to get back to the point where I can insert the boot CD, restart my computer, and have the operating system install the way that it is supposed to install.

Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

I tried that, got the same response, and now CUPS doesn't see my printer, even though it is connected and turned on.
