    Trying to set up a FP monitor, and in the process I tried changing the bios setting from onboard AGP (flat panel wasn't working with this, had to add another video adapter card) to PCI, thinking I could change it back if ineffective. But now my display on the monitor that WAS working is black, so I can't undo my mistake.

    How to undo damage??
    Thanks.

    If you remove the battery on the mothernoard
    for a minute or two, the BIOS loses it's
    current settings and goes back to the defaults
    that will work on any system. You'll have to
    let it auto-detect hard drives and everything.
