    On bootup there will be a message to enter your bios. In your bios look for a video option that will allow you to disable your on board video. On the reboot, turn it off and install your new card.
    Good Luck

    If that doesnt work, check out your user manual, sometimes theres a jumper on the board to disable onboard equipment.:D
