Alright well this starts with my brother being stupid and trying to unplug his monitor fromt the back of the computer. He didn't unscrew it, and pulled out the entire block. Now, I have a video card that I could use in place of the integrated video that is now useless. I put the card in and plugged the monitor into it, but I'm guessing the output is still set for the integrated, so I get no picture on the monitor. What I want to know is if there is any way for me to set the output to the new video card without buying a new motherboard. Please help

ouch....i hope your brother can run fast...without being able to get the display output...there's no way to make those changes and install the drivers....let alone that i would assume ripping the entire vga port out..had to have done more damage to the motherboard that just rendering the video useless....looks like it's time to go mobo shopping...and tell your parents to start working on a replacement brother for the one you're about to kill
