Compaq Presario 5000 graphics install problem

Trying to install Radeon 9250 in my presario 5008, Win 2000. The bios has no setting to change from the integrated graphics card to the PCI slot. Installed according to COMPAQ and Radeon. Rebooted and the system locked up. I tried kenny's method:
Install graphics card, load driver leave monitor hooked up to integrated till driver is installed, right click on my computer, properties, hardware, device manager, click the plus sign next to display adapters. Right click on the integrated graphics, it should show two different graphics tabs, anyway right click the one you want to disable, it will prompt you if you really want to do this. Click yes the system will restart simply remove monitor cable from integrated hookup, and install on video card as long as the driver you have is the right one every thing should work fine.

But the screen stayed black. I removed the radeon 9250 and the integrated graphics worked fine again. HELP!!!

Hey, Spacejuicer. Did You ever get that video card installed? I'm having the same problem with an ATI Rage 128. Very frustrating...
