Cannot Disable Onboard Video

I have a HP PC with ECS motherboard MCP61P-HM (Nettle2) has onboard video. If I install video card in the PCIe slot, PC will boot up with no video. To get video I have to remove the video card in the PCIe slot. I went to the standard BIOS settings and then to video and  the only options I have are: EGA/VGA, CGA 40, CGA 80, and MONO. I've checked the whole bios settings but cannot find anywhere to select PCIe as my primary video source.
Am I missing something? Thanks

Correct you cant disable your video in BIOS. However your problem isnt there its when the BIOS hands off to the OS. Connect the monitor to the onbaoard video and when the OS boots install needed drivers and software. this will be much easier if you have a second monitor if not after ther driver load and the new Video card is loaded right click on the desktop and select properties . click the settings tab and you should see 2 monitors #2 will be greyed out right click that and set it as primary. this should resolve the black screen issue.

After connecting the PCI card did you connect the DVI or VGA cable  to the pci card. Silly question but can you check whether its connected properly. Try different cables like dvi, hdmi, vga

Hi there,

What graphics card did you buy?

How many Watts is your powersupply?

Have you connected PCI-E power connectors to the graphics card? (If you card has PCI-E connector)

You might need to upgrade your powersupply.

another possibility is a bad card - can you test it on  another PC?

Graphics card is PNY GeForce 9800GT 1024MB. Card works in another PC. Card only has 2 DVI connections which I did try and make sure that they were well connected. I believe I had to find a way in the BIOS to change the video out to PCI or PCIe. I had to do the same in my other PC to have the same card working.
Again, if I have the card in the PCIe slot I cannot have any video, even if I use the VGA on the mobo. Had to remove the card entirely before I could get video from mobo VGA.

Check this article. Sound like you have to adjust some jumper setting in the mobo. Check mobo user guide
