Physically put the card in, then in Windows install the drivers. What's the model of the card?

Just take the old one out, then put the new one in. The mobo should recognize it. When you boot up Windows, go to Device Manager, click on your Display adapter, then Drivers then install drivers. That or it will do it automatically.

Yeah, that is what I meant. Did I really say install the drivers first?

Put the card in, then once you're in Windows download and install this assuming you're using XP or 2000:
