Hi wossie!

BEFORE adding the new vid card to your computer, I would go into the BIOS and disable the onboard video and also make sure that the options for INITIAL DISPLAY is set to AGP (if it is an AGP card, meaning it plugs into the BROWN slot). Then turn off your computer, insert the new video card. Turn on the computer and then install the driver for the video card.

All you can do is check, if there is no option in the bios for the items I stated in my previous post, then just turn off your computer, put the new vid card in, connect the monitor cable to the new vid card and turn the computer back on.
