The problem is getting the computer to switch to that graphics card instead of onboard. If I boot the computer with the video cable in the onboard area and then switch it once windows boots it works. In this situation I would just let it boot without m seeing it and then get straight to the computer, but for some odd reason it won't let me do that.
Basically, when I switch the cables around after it finishes booting it works fine, but if I just leave it in the NVIDIA card it starts showing strange colors and patterns. Also of note, I can't shut down XP (SP3) properly with the card so I must put back all the settings each time I do the switch tactic. Another thing is that my IBM BIOS won't let me save any changes I make, I can get in but I can't get out (unless I don't save it), which may be a part of the problem since if I could save it I would just switch the graphics from onboard to PCI.
Sorry if I'm missing any information, I already googled and I didn't find anything relevant so I apologize if this is obvious (though I doubt it is)
