can you boot into safe mode, can you see post (power on self test).or the xp logo..
if so keep tapping f8, then choose safe mode...
does the pc work fine in safe mode...if so a driver is most likely at fault, how hot does the card get

danzil is correct, pluging in a card should disable the onboard no need to do anything.

Does the card need extra power from the PSU ? check for a connector on the graphics card.

What size is your psu ? can it handle this card ?

There may be a bios setting to change which card is initalized first onboard/agp or onboard/peg.
