First of all, physically fit your new card into it's slot and close the case. Plug the monitor's VGA cable into the new card.
Turn on the PC and immediately hold down the 'Delete' key until the BIOS configuration screen appears (blue screen, white or yellow text). Look for 'on-board video' and set it to 'Disabled'. Save changes and allow the PC to reboot normally. Windows should start, using it's own 'generic' VGA driver with basic, low resolution and low colour-depth (this is normal at this stage).
Now install the drivers for the new card and reboot. You should now be able to set up the resolution and colour-depth to whatever settings you usually prefer, though if it's an LCD monitor the resolution setting should be the 'native' resolution of the monitor (refer to monitor handbook).
