    You need to uninstall your onboard cards drivers.

    Then check your documentation on how to disable the onboard, either by jumper or bios setting.

    ok i uninstalled the drivers to the onboard card, so now when i boot its basically comes up a standard vga adapter (16 colors max). anyway i tried to put in my gforce again and the screen still is black but it boots. when i take it out it works normal(16 colors). the instuctions i have really dont tell me how to disable the onboard thru the set up screen(i can disable anything BUT that in that screen!) so what should i do now??

    As Brian stated - You have to disable the onboard video in the bios settings.
