I'm not absolutely clear on what it is you're trying to do.
If you just wish to uninstall your current video card & driver, then install a new one, all you normally need to do is :
From control panel->display->advanced change the video adapter to the generic Standard graphics PCI (VGA) driver.
Then uninstall any software that came as part of the video card driver (eg for matrox cards, this will be maxtrox powerdesk etc)
Reboot in safe mode. Go into device manager & look under display adapters. If your old card shows up in there (this will only appear normally in safe mode), then delete it from the list.
Then shutdown the system & remove the video card & insert the new one.
Install new drivers on reboot
