prosavage 8 (built in) Ok but how do i install this thing i clicked on catalysk software and said that it could not find my hardware that it could install on. So i shutoff my computer and stuck it in... but my screen does not turn on so i took it out. So do i uninstall my old card right now? And then put it in and it will work? I have never installed a card before so i know nothing. Oh may i mention i do not have direct x 9 installed.

k...what you have to do i think is dissable the onboard in the bios, then reboot and open up windows then install all of the drivers then i think it'll reboot again then you go and get all of the other drivers you need, i think it should have come with direct x 9 and every thing.
