I got a ATI Radeon Xtacy 9200 SE 128 Mb PCI card and i disable my old video card and stuff like it says to do and then i put it in, i plug the monitor in and when i boot the computer it comes up with a black screen and says the name of the card and stuff in DOS type letters and under it, it has a flashing under score. I've installed this card before on a different computer and had no problems, can anyone help me out? Any help is much appreciated. Thank You.

Enter BIOS by pressing Del on bootup, confirm that the graphic adapter is set to PCI and not AGP. You said youv disabled the other videocard, is it onboard or an expansioncard? If its an expansioncard Id remove it from the computer alltogether.
