Onboard graphics card replacement problem

HI! Your assistance and suggestions please! I want to replace my old onboard graphics card so I purchased a PCI-e Graphics card which is an ATI Xpress Graphics with a new NVideo700 Series card. The problem is that when I turned it on, the boot up was unsuccessful. Doing it in BIOS also doesn’t work.  I tried to unplug the card and went back to the original onboard graphics and it worked very well. I don’t know a way and I didn’t dare to try to disable the onboard graphics in BIOS without using the jumper links, assuming that it will run or operate automatically. Kindly give an easy-to-follow procedure to make it work. Thanks.

Try using a known working video card and have it connected to your computer. You can try borrowing from a friend just to test. If it works, then it's likely that your Nvidia video card is defective and you may need to return it to the store to have it replaced. If the known working card doesn't work in your machine, it's likely that the PCI-e port is faulty. If it is indeed faulty, you need to have the motherboard itself replaced. You also need to check if the NVidia card that you have requires its own power source. Most older cards don't need this and just have to be plugged in to the expansion slots, but newer cards are power hungry and require this. Verify this and make sure your computer's power supply has the connector to supply power to your video card. This may be the reason why it's not working.

The best way out of the mess is simply to disable the on-board VGA card in BIOS. Most motherboards do not have the option of dissabling the VGA using a jumper. If you are familiar with BIOS Settings, please disable the onboard card there and be sure it will be fine. Regards
