EEK!

I've just bought a new video card; BFG GeForce Fx 5700. I haven't been able to play any games so far. Everytime I start the games up they crash or run VERY slowly. HL2 stopped me from going into windows completely causing me to completely reinstall. Does anybody know if i need to disable the onboard video card or is there another solution?
Here's my specs;

Winfast K7s 741mg
2.5 AMD Processor
Geforce 5700 256 DDR
1 gig DDR ram (2x512)
WD 100 Gig HD
WD 80 Gig HD
Philips 16x Dvd dual layered
52x32x52 Cd Rewriter.

Thanx

when you list your specs always include the power supply
in the device manager disable onboard
if you have installed the card,then uninstall it
turn off the computer
swap the monitor cable to the card
start the computer tapping f8
from the options choose
vga mode
when windows finishes booting and installing the card
disable a/virus
install your drivers
reboot the computer
