You need to go into the BIOS Set-up and disable onboard video - save your changes and computer will start and Windows should find your new video card.

Sometimes you have to place a jumper correctly on your MOBO for it to disable the onboard memory. The Jumper setting depends on the type of board. If the above suggestion doesnt work, I'd try going to the Company website and seeing if they have any info regarding it. When I placed a 3-D card in my HP. I had to e-mail customer Support for the information. My BIOs doesnt allow me to disable it. I had to set a jumper on my MOBO. Hope that helps.
