    Did you uninstall the video drivers for your onboard graphics BEFORE installing the video card?

    uninstall the onboard graphics drivers. and then uninstall your video card drivers and reinstall them.

    Try to clean up your registry first, then try to remove the old drivers. If cleaning up the registry does not help, it may be useful and needed to reinstall Windows.
