You seem to be going about the replacement of your graphics card the wrong way. Follow these instructions click here or watch this click here.

If you still have problems post back.

Open up pc (power off) insert new card making sure your monitor lead is connected to the NEW card start pc windows will find new card then install drivers.

Forgot to add you should not have to go into the bios, when you start pc after inserting the card you will see it mentioned at the bios loading screen,windows will continue to load

Have you connected monitor to THE NEW card monitor socket you have just installed NOT the onboard socket you connected to previously,also has new card got a power socket on it have you connected this.
If you cannot get this card to output anything,turn off pc remove card,place monitor lead in onboard monitor socket start pc should go back to onboard vga(new card MUST BE REMOVED)

I could be comletely wrong about this but isn't the Onboard Graphics controlled by a driver in the DEVICE MANAGER????
Right click My Computer on desk top, left click Properties, left click Hardware, left click Device Manager and then find the relevent Graphics Driver and remove it??

I found this advice on another site.

Disable the onboard graphics (assuming that you are running Windows). Turn your computer on and log on using Safe Mode. You can do this by pressing F8 repeatedly during boot up. You should come to a list of options; highlight Safe Mode using the up and down buttons, and press 'Enter' to select.

Right click on My Computer and select Properties.
Select the Advanced tab, and click on Device Manager.

Click on the '+' by the picture of a monitor. It should pull up your graphics device (something like Intel Integrated Graphics).

Right click on the device for your onboard graphics.Disable it, don't uninstall it; otherwise, this will cause you a world of trouble.

Log off, and power your computer off.
Remove the case cover and insert the new card in an empty slot.

Plug your monitor cable into the new card, and when you log on, it should run on low resolution until the driver is installed. It should find the new hardware, and from here, follow the graphics card installation manual. Sometimes it has programs that install the driver and not the Found New Hardware Wizard.
