Default No onboard video?

Alright, so I have an AGP ATi Radeon X850 Pro video card. I am trying to install it in my Dell (Dimension something or other) But it has no onboard video. I'm just wondering how I should go about installing it when if I disable the original (Nvidia GeForce 2 MX), the monitor won't work. Any help would be appreciated.

Take out your old card, pop in your new card.

The last three paragraphs, more specifically, are what you're looking for.

Alright, well I accidently disabled the GeFroce card, so it won't work with that. I have 3 different video cards, but none of them will work. What should I do to get the one working again?

And unplug the computer after turning it off.
