Okay, I put in a new video card, however the old one is integrated onto my motherboard......i went into the bios to disable the old one.......and now when i start up the computer i see nothing untill windows boots......

in the bios i switched from on board/pci to agp.....however the new video card is not agp.....but those where the only two options.....

you can leave the onboard video on in the bios, just connect the monitor cable to the pci video card and it should work.

oops, forgot to mention, if you cant even see the option for bios, just take out the cmos battery for a few minutes then put it back in, everything should be defaulted to original state. .

there is a silver battery, it looks like a large watch battery. it looks like a flat silver disc. turn off computer and unplug power cable then you can take it out by pressing the little release tab, you may need a small screw driver to press the tab. take it out, then wait a few minutes, then it resets the changes you made to the bios.

**EDIT** dont forget to put the battery back in.

this will only effect the bios. and to disable the other video card, once you are in windows go to device manager and right click the driver and press disable button. im not sure what operating system you have so i cannot give you a step by step directions of how to get to device manager.
