Setup display with standard VGA driver - video card installation error

  1. I recently bought a video card and installed it into my computer. However, every time I try to install the software, I get this message:

    I'm completely confused because I'm using a standard VGA driver. Windows automatically installed it after I disabled my integrated graphics.

    I can't figure this problem out and get the video card to work on my computer so any tips would be hugely appreciated.

    Video Card Info:
    Video card: Visiontek 900089 Radeon 7000 Video Card (64MB, PCI, w/DVI/TV-OUT) from TigerDirect.ca @ tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=6528024&CatId=696

    You went into your BIOS and disabled the integrated graphics? Um you might try a free program like Driver Sweeper to remove whatever remains of the old video drivers. For some reason the new video driver installer does not see your new video card.
