Okay here goes, I have a Dell Dimension 2350. I recently purchased a Powercolor Radeon 9250 video card to upgrade it with. So I installed compleatly wrong and now I have a problem. Heres what I did.

1. I installed the card in the PCI slot, but left the monitor plugged into the motherboard.
2. I restarted the computer and installed the Drivers for it.
3. I removed the driver for the internal video.
4. I restarted the computer.
5. It rebooted this time in a huge resolution and without all the colors. Don't know what this is called. I shut off the computer to attach the monitor cord to the new video card, but remembered that I needed to change the BIOS settings.
6. I turned the computer on and now all I get is a Blank screen and blinking white dash. The Monitor is plugged into the motherboard. I get nothing through the video card.

What do I do? PLEASE HELP.

What do you mean? I'm using another computer to type this right now. The computer dosn't succesfully start up. All it does is blink the white dash.

Ok, it might be a good idea to try reseting the BIOS. To do this just open the case sna look for a small silver battery. Remove it for about 30-60 seconds and put it back in. Try booting. Our next target will be your PSU.

Okay, I have everything the way it was before I installed this thing. It's taken out, all the Drivers for it are gone. Walk me through the process of installing it now. I need to know how to disable my onboard graphics card first and foremost. Please walk me through this.
