He shouldn't have to do that. It should detect which GPU is running and load the appropriate driver.

In the future you may want to use something like driver sweeper to eliminate all Nvidia drivers
you have installed before trying to resume use of your old equipment. Not trying to flame you dude but you really do come off as ignorant in this post. Someone with your post count and rep should know better.
i did that and still didn't do jack and i know all that stuff you guys say but i done it dozens of time before the 186 drivers they crippled ati after those drivers Google it if you don't believe me

It's common sense to *uninstall* the driver through Programs and Features and then delete the ATI/NVidia folder in your root directory.

Only then can you remove the card, put the new card in, and install the newest drivers.

Once you're done testing you should follow the same procedure.

It's most likely a incompatibility issue between the two individual driver versions. Uninstalling the drivers before removing the cards can prevent this. That's why I always do it.

But the thing is, upon startup, his rig shoudl've detected that there was no longer an Nvidia GPU in place, but an ATi one and never loaded the Nvidia driver in the first place. Which I think it did, but for some reason, it seems as though his ATi files were corrupt.

I would've just stuck the 9800 back in and install the ATI driver over again.

Just make sure to uninstall and delete the drivers before swapping cards next time and the problem will probably never happen again.
