My computer just got a new video card added (ATI Dadeon HD 4650 1GB GDDR2) but when I go on to CPU-Z it says the video card is a Standard VGA graphics adapter. The monitor is plugged in to the GPU and not the onboard graphics card. The last time the BIOS has been updated is 07/11/2003 version 3.12 though. My motherboard model is ASUSTek A7N8X-LA. I don't have Cataclyst installed and I don't have the CD to install it, is it needed? Is there another place to install it? I am just asking this because I think when the GPU was installed the BIOS wasn't updated so I think even though the monitor is plugged in to the GPU it is still using the onboard graphics card though. What should I do? Are there any steps to solve this problem?

By the way-

It says the drivers for Standard VGA Graphics Adapter are up to date, but should I install the drivers for the ATI Radeon HD 4650 if it doesn't even show it under DXDiag or CPU-Z? If I should install them anyway's, can you give a link to install them?
