    When an add-on graphics card is detected in one of the PCI slots, the BIOS usually disables the on-board graphics automatically to avoid conflicts. At least that's how it works on every system I've worked on over the past 15 years.

    Did you install a Windows 7 driver for the Zotac nVidia card? : http://www.zotac.com/index.php?option=com_docman&Itemid=100059&lang=en

    If Zotac do not have a Windows 7 driver for the ge210 model, you'll have to remove it and fit something else.
    That's one of the pitfalls of upgrading or downgrading Windows without first checking the driver availability.
