Default Installing my radeon 8500le

This is my motherboard:

I recently bought a ATI radeon 8500 LE (AGP 4x), and took apart the computer and put the video card in a slot next to 3 other white slots. It seemed to be the exact fit, and when I turned on the computer everything displayed smoothly. I tried using the CD that came with the card to install everything, but it says it cannot detect the hardware. But after some research I found out I had to disable my ONBOARD video card, but when I go to BIOS setup at boot up there is no option to do this. Also, I tried uninstalling via device manager, and my SiS 650 video card seemed to be gone.

I am utterly confused. Can someone help me out?
Much thanks

you're saying you put in a Radeon 8500 video card, and your SiS 650 video card is not in device manager
is your monitor plugged into the Radeon 8500?
is your Radeon 8500 in the device manager?

if both of these are yes, does this mean you're trying to install the drivers that came with it?

Refresh the device manager, the SiS 650 should be detected, then disable it from there.

I judge you when you use poor grammar.
