I have had bad situations in Win XP doing the same thing.
The best solution is to uninstall the existing driver
then reinstall the driver with the new video card. My
experience has been with nVidia cards, but it probably has
similar consequences regardless of the brand. What happens
is that one card model will use a different .dll and/or .sys
module than another model of the same brand.
So, your experience is normal. I know that nVidia
specifically advises you to follow the procedure I described
