Hi naifyboy123,
In some cases you won't have to do anything at all...plug the PCI Video card in and boot the machine and you might get video out of the new video card. Sometimes, depending on how the computer is configured, video might still be output to the onboard video even though you have an upgraded video card. In these cases, all you normally have to do is enter the BIOS and change the video mode from onboard to PCI or PCI/AGP. The settings and what they are called vary by the manufacturer of the bios, but it's usually not hard to find. Once to make that change, save the settings, reboot, and you should have video from the PCI video card.
