Solved Computer does not recognize the Graphics card.

Specs: Windows Vista, 2.00 GHZ, 4mb cache and 2GB ram
I have acquired a brand new graphics card and I have successfully placed it inside the PCI slot. It is a AMD 5770 HD, from what says the bill. I do have a VGA graphics adapter since the monitor cannot go any higher the VGA. Once I have proceeded to booting up the computer, everything seems to run fine. Now I must install the driver for the graphics card. I go onto the AMD website and download AMD catalyst 13-1, since the site suggested so. Once the installation is complete, nothing seems to occur. The computer has been rebooted but still no sign of change. I look further in the device manager and under Display Adapters says: Standard VGA Graphics Adapter. Usually I'm suppose to find the name of the graphics card there! I then go to properties and look at details. It states: This device cannot start. (Code 10). I run a windows vista 32-bit. Please help!

Check the PSU output wattage. It has to have at least a 450-watts output for the 5770 HD card, and preferably one that's certified by AMD as listed here:

Thanks for the help anyways, I have installed a tool that allowed me to figure out what name of the graphics card I had. The name was Geforce GT 640.
