Graphics card wont install

I followed the proper procedure for installing a new graphics card when
I first tried. I even reinstalled the old graphics card and went
through the procedure again and uninstalling the SIS Accelerated
Graphics Port but to no avail.
I had also tried to install a Radeon 7500 which I know works on XP on
another computer but the same thing happened, It would not install. Is
my only option now to do a clean install of XP?
Regards

Do not uninstall the SIS Accelerated Graphics Port....AGP
Your 9600 is an AGP card is it not??
