Default Simple I'm sure GC problem

I have installed a few graphics cards in my time but I am confused with this problem.
I installed a radeon 9600se and turned the pc on and expected to see "detected new harware etc etc" but nothing came up so i tried to do the manual search for new hardware and it wasnt there.
This might be me, but the confusing bit is that the monitor is plugged in to the GC and of course works fine.
When i try an dinstall the GC drivers from the disk it gives me a severe warning saying "try to install a standard VGA"

So if anyone could shed some light on this I would be most grateful

Go to ATI's site, get the driver cleaner, use it, then download the appropriate driver from the website, install it. Should work.
