    Hi John, you need to download Display Driver Uninstaller http://www.wagnardsoft.com/DDU/downl...0v17.0.3.0.exe, extract DDU on your desktop, run it to the Safe Mode, then choose Clean and Shutdown.
    Now open your PC and change Graphic Card, boot Windows, then download AMD drivers and install.
    Cheers

    Usually you have to uninstall the drivers (via control panel) for the one you are using first. It will make the screen look very low resolution. Then you power off the machine. Disconnect power to the case. Swap the cards over and re-connect up. Power up the case. Boot up. When you get as far as the desktop, if it doesn't happen automatically, load the Microsoft drivers via control panel. Then adjust resolutions etc. You can then get the disk or driver package for the new card and update the drivers for it.
