I recently sold my PCI-E card, I could have swore I uninstalled my old card's drivers and Im 100% sure I downloaded the drivers for the onboard card off of HP's website, but I cant remember If i installed them..im pretty sure I did but:

I had to go out and buy a DVI-F to VGA-M adapter to use for my monitor on the onboard card (since I only have DVI cable on my LCD)

the computer boots up fine with no beeps but there is no display, just a black screen and monitor's power button goes orange. when I unplug the VGA and plug it back in it goes blue for a sec then switches back to orange.

I cant get into bios because I cant see anything on the screen in the first place, unless I try to do it blind.


Any ideas?

You could have missed to enable the onboard video card when you uninstall the PCI-E card. Since you are out of any display it would be very difficult to properly fix this problem. All I can think of as of now to resolve your issue is to reinstall your operating system so upon installation your computer will be configured properly.
