if it`s the same brand Nvidia card, just shut down and swap the cards. If it`s an ATI to NVidia, or the other way around, then remove the drivers from the control panel then shut down and swap, reboot and load the new drivers.

Sorry Rukee I guess I wasn't to clear on what I was about to do but my system did not have a installed card everything ran from the motherboard I installed the presant card which is starting to fail me so I want to remove the bad card with out losing my video and replace it with the on board video which came preinstalled with this system. On board video was Integrated VIA UniChrome

then you should be able to just shut down, remove the video card, plug the monitor cable into the motherboard VGA connecter and it should take right off. If it doesn`t, put the video card back in and enter the BIOS, poke around for an on-board video option and enable it, then save and exit, shut down, remove the card and switch the cable and restart.
