graphic card problems!

Hi, I have upgraded a Compaq Presario SR1080UK XP edition to Win 7 and increased the RAM to 2 GB. I tried to play Chess Titans and found I could only get a basic version (no 3D ) and guessed this would down to the games card. I replaced the old card with a Radeon HD 4650 1GB DDR2 and on rebbot the card was recognised. However on restart the computer would not start properly. I have now put the old card back and everything is as it was before. Can anyone tell me if the new card is the correct one and if so have I followed the right procedures - if not can you please tell me what to do. Thank you in advance.

What make and type was your original card?

Have you installed the correct drivers?

Before you install your new card, you'll need to uninstall your current graphics card's drivers to avoid any potential conflicts. Follow the instructions here link text
