Why did you disable anything in device manager?

Boot to safe mode and install the driver for the card and reboot. Let us know what happens.

Do you not get an image at all? Can you see the compaq logo when the computer turns on? If not, I'd say the video card is bad. Take it back.

Did you connect your display to the new card? 
If you leave the display connected to the integrated video card it will do what you described.
