Older computer needs accelerator card for game

    I have a nephew who has an older 866 MHz HP desktop. He recently
    purchased a game (Tony Hawk's Underground 2) and discovered that he
    needs a graphics accelerator to use the game. So I went over to COMPUSA
    and purchased a 64 MB PCI accelerator card expecting to simply plug it
    in and presto. However, after installing the card, I was unable to get
    the computer to start. Windows does not boot. Nada. He is running
    Win2000.

    Is there something else I have to do? Do I have to disable the onboard
    graphics card? How can I do that? Should I install something else?

    Any comments/suggestions would be appreciated.
