    Make sure that when you boot the first time with the new card installed that
    you go into your BIOS settings first to disable or set the onboard video to
    not be your primary video.

    "JW" I did go into the bios and set it for pci, then when I re-booted nothing
    came up, I had to pull the power cord to turn the computer off.

    Try again and try an F8 Safe Mode start.
    Did you see the Bios display?
    I assume you are also using the VGA interface for your monitor with X1300
    card.

    I will try to do this again, when I pressed f8 the only thing that showed was
    restart in recovery or normal, there was no safe-mode, once I pulled the card
    out and went to restart, then the safe-mode appeared.
    yes I am using the VGA.

    I just tried to load and install this visiontek card, it will not install, I
    went and disabled the on board card, through the device manager, restarted in
    save mode and tried to install the disk that came with the card, it kept
    shutting down, so I am right back to where I started from.

    Don't use the disk that came with the card. Download the latest version of
    the Catalyst drivers for your card from the ATI.AMD website and install them
    from safe mode.
