ok so Im setting up an ATI Radeon 9600 on my parents computer.
But I need help in actually setting it up so the computer uses the Card instead of the video chip.
Can anyone give me a walkthrough?

Plug it in, and BIOS & Windows will understand to use it instead of any other onboard gfx chip.

If it came with a CD then put the gfx card in turn on pc, put in cd and install.

That's really strange... There might be some strange setting in the BIOS, but I really dobt that. I've never had any problems, I've even got the Radeon 9600 on our 2nd PC.
