Ok here is what is happening...

I have a Compaq and it has built in video so cannot physically remove it. I want to have dual monitors so bought a new graphics card to do so. Well the instructions said that the build in video had to be disabled in BIOS. So I disabled it, and chose the option to use PCI slot instead, well monitor is not turning on. I can tell the comp is booting since drive is working and loading windows in background, but the poor monitor wont start =o(

Anyone got any ideas on how to fix this?

Computer : Compaq Presario 5000 Series (exact model unsure)
Graphics Card : VisionTek 64MB Dual Monitor Graphics Card (ATI Radeon 7000)

This is very important and need it fixed soon, will award more points the sooner the better. Thanks!
