    Your procedure should be:

    - Download the latest drivers for your ATI card.

    - Uninstall the Matrox drivers.

    - Power down.

    - Swap cards.

    - On power up, when XP asks to install drivers, click CANCEL.

    - Install ATI drivers.

    If the ATI card doesn't recognize your new monitor by it's brand name,
    locate the .inf file for your monitor and install.
