Intall new graphics from integrated to PCI express

Hi all!
I have searched Windows 7 forums & Google but could find nothing that made sense to me. I have an HP desktop computer running Windows Seven. I bought a new graphics card that comes with software. Can somebody walk me through step by step on how to disable the integrated graphics and installing a PCI one. This confuses me. Please help!

Without the model of HP Desktop, it's tough to figure out. Though it being HP, you probably won't be able to go in and disable it in the BIOS although you shouldn't need to as when you install the new video card, the integrated one should disable itself and the discrete video card will take over; this is what occurs in most cases.

I figured it out. Its a simple thing that I don't want to explain unless you want me to. The process is pretty much universal.

Ah cool. I usually never go through the trouble of doing so hence why I'm not that familiar with the process.
