There seems to be no setting in the bios, I am thinking it is a jumper setting somewhere.

Typically if you have an AGP port, and plug a card in, it will usually automatically disable the on board card.  If using a PCI card, then you may have more trouble.  Best is to plug in the new card, start up windows, and install the new drivers for the new card, shut down the computer, then plug your monitor into the new card.  Power back on, and hope for the best.

I've never done this but could you not uninstall the driver/s for the onboard video? Then plug in the new card install the drivwers.

Or just disable the onboard in device manager.

It would be important to know what kind of Presario this is.  Most would have no jumpers.  See these instructions for those with the Intel 810 chipset, which is very common:
