Radeon 4650 will not work

Help! Bought a new radeon 4650 - did everything the guide said - removed my old GeForce4 MX4000, installed the 4650. After restart I got nothing - black screen. Absolutely nothing so I couldn't even view my BIOS settings in set-up. Removed the 4650, installed the MX4000 again and could view as normal. Reset the Primary adapter to onboard, removed the MX4000, rebooted - works normally. But no matter what I do, as soon as I install the 4650 again, I get nothing (even with Primary adapter selected to PCI or PCI-E). Someone help - please!!! I'm an avid Flight Sim user so I want this to work badly for 2004 & X.

Pavilion a1245c (Athlon 3700+ 2.19Ghz)
Win XP (SP3)
200GB hard drive
1GB mem

Also used an on-line lab to check system requirements - it says I'm good on everything for Flight Sim 2004 but need a new card for FSX.
