After installing my ati radeon dual monitor graphics card the onboard graphics on my Dell dimension e520 gets disabled.  Is there anyway to have both enabled at the same time? The goal is to have 3 monitors.

Can you check and enable the on-board graphics card in the BIOS?

I checked the bios and it states that once you install an additional graphics card the on-board one gets disabled.

There's you answer. Some motherboards unfortunately are not designed to run both on-board and externals.

For the 3rd monitor you'll need to add another graphics card or use a usb adapter.
