Default Video Card Hardware Troubles

I have an Aspire x1200 (Small form Factor PC). which has an onboard Geforce 8200 graphics card but that doesn't quite cut it for my needs. I bought a Galaxy Geforce 9600 GT (Not the Low-profile card) but it isn't recognizing the device. This gets a little more complicated though, because the power supply in the acer x1200 is only 220watts so I modded another power supply to be a dedicated power supply for the 9600 gt. When going into windows (7 Ultimate 32bit) it shows in the device manager "co-processor." but it can't find the drivers and when I install the latest drivers it doesnt associate them with the device. I have updated to the latest BIOS on my motherboard, I have switched the BIOS to use the PCI slot instead of the Onboard graphics and nothing seems to be working. I'm at my wits end.

Thank You.
