I am having trouble with an old Acer Aspire Desktop. It is running Windows 98. It has an onboard 2MB ATI Mach 64 video card. I installed a Nvidia TNT2 16MB PCI graphic card in the first PCI slot. When I turn on the machine the new card is not found by Windows. The onboard video card still works for awhile, but it freezes up after a little while. I have tried running Add New Hardware via the control panel, but the new video card is not found. Any guidance would be appreciated. If I take the PCI graphic card out and re-boot the onboard card works fine.

you may need to tell the BIOS to use the card instead of the onboard (might do this automatically) and install the drivers from Nvidias site
