Exclamation Trouble installing a graphics card.

Well, first id like to say i do know how to install graphic cards, i have done it before. But theres a problem in this case.
Im upgrading my APG graphic card to a newer more powerfull one. I cant install the drivers if the new one isnt plugged in, but if i remove the current one i cant use my monitor. The pc once once used a standard one connected to the motherboard. A long time ago i had a crap one put in to take the load off it, they closed up the old VGA out and told me not to use it, but i thought if i unplugged the current one, would the old VGA become active again thus solving my problem?
Thanks in advance.

Well, posts like this make it seem like you want to sneak in a link to increase your page rank, and site exposure. Plus, this isn't even in the right section.

Put your new card in, boot into safe mode, install the driver, reboot into Windows
