    hopefully you know how to install your gcard (follow the manual).

    1) uninstall drivers and software for old gcard.

    2) turn off you, insert card, and turn on

    3) verify bios to see if initial video is set to what ever the gcard interface is (pcie or agp)

    4) install driver and software for new card

    5) game on moe-pucker!
