Now, with the monitor plugged into the onboard video, get into BIOS by pressing a certain key (usually Del or one of the "F" buttons) at the BIOS screen. This key is shown on the BIOS screen typically. If you bought your computer from a company such as HP, instead of a BIOS screen, you may have a splash screen that says the company's name. In this case, the key may not be shown. Consult the manual that came with your computer if so, or just try all the usual keys. Also, hit the key at this splash screen instead of the BIOS screen (if there is no BIOS screen).
Once in BIOS, find an entry called "Primary VGA Adapter" or something similar to that. Change it from onboard to whatever slot your graphics card is in (PCI-E, AGP, etc.).
Now save and shutdown your computer. Reconnect your monitor to the new graphics card. Turn the computer back on, and if the monitor works, install the latest graphics drivers and you are good to go.
