In that case, you'll need to go to BIOS, and disable it.

I think, it's gonna be F10 key, when your computer restarts. At Compaq logo, at the bottom of your screen, you'll see for very short time, something like "Press F10 to enter setup".

You'll have to look around. Look for something like "disable onboard VGA"
When you find it, don't forget to save changes, before you exit BIOS.

should I be worried that the other Radeon thing is off of the device manager?

Is it off in Device Manager? If it is, leave it that way for now.

I don't want to give any advice about "something" in BIOS.
You need to write it down, with options, you have there, and post it back.

I just found out, that because your Radeon card is AGP type card, upon installing, your onboard video should get disabled automatically.
Don't worry about your BIOS, then.

alright here is everything I think could have to do with video settings,

1.Primary video Adapter is set to PCI th other selection is AGP/Onboard
2.I don't know what this is but it says onboard 1394 is disabled
3.onboard video memory is set to auto
4.Plug & Play OS is set to on
description said exactly this
"[yes] is using a plug & play capable operating system, select [no] if you need BIOS to configure non-bootable devices

other than that nothing else seemed important or relevant
