No video on POST with DVI video card

I'm building a system (Win 8x64) on an Intel W2600CR motherboard with a Nvidia GTX650 video card, which is DVI-only.  Everything's fine when Windows loads, but I have no video on POST, nor can I access the BIOS as I have no video.  The board has native VGA video, so I can see POST and access the BIOS if I use the on-board VGA.  I've used other DVI cards before and haven't had this problem, although I haven't used this motherboard before.  I suspect it's a driver issue, but surely one should be bale to view POST/BIOS with any video card.  I didn't see a BIOS setting that may govern this behavior.

first, i assume you have no led indicators lit on board ?
normally, the system should detect your card, and switch over to it
i also assume you have the power cable connected to the card?

Thanks.  I found the answer: I had both on-board VGA and the card enabled at the same time.  Disabling VGA solved the problem.
Connect further...control easier
