Default New Video Card, Install Question

Hi, I recently purchased a radeon 9600, 256mb Graphics card. I have a Gateway 300, and I have also upgraded my Ram to 1G/b. I just installed my video card, and the right drivers, I think? I couldnt find the drivers of my old 64Mb intergrated graphics card so i couldnt uninstall them. I think i ran into a problem somewhere because when i right click on the desktop to bring up the properties, an error occurs and windows explorer closes. It just happened after i installed the card so i think something went wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I just downloaded and ran CPU-Z and for graphics interface it says its aperture size is 64MBytes, thats what the stock vid card was, but it also says its running off the AGP 4x, so i dont quite understand.

Integrated graphics don't use drivers heh, that is why integrated blows.

Install the card into the AGP slot, plug in the monitor cable, then go to:

and download the ATI Catalyst 5.8 driver, then reboot and see how it works.
