my son didn't connect monitor to video card but used the upper monitor port. Then tried to load xp OS -. When he figure out his error - the machine won't load OS - locked in hardware monitor Bios - message on the screen says -"Hardware Monitor" "verifying DMI Pool Data" - then its locked. Won't go anywhere - not to bios - keyboard is working as you can ctrl- alt- delete and restart??? I am stumped because Can go anywhere?

From your post, it sounds like you have a board with onboard video and have installed a video card. Is that correct?

Each mfg is a little different in how onboard video is disabled in order to use a video card. You would need to read your manual on how to disable the onboard video. Common methods are via a jumper, disabling in the bios, or simply inserting a video card disables the onboard. Again read the manual for the exact procedure.

If your post is referring to something else, then post with exactly what you are trying to accomplish and how you have tried.

you could always try to remove the video card, load the OS with the monitor plugged into the on-board video, then when it`s all running fine and motherboard drivers installed, reboot, enter the BIOS dissable the on-board video, shut down and install the video card, then load the video card drivers after it boots with the new card.
