to get back to where you started, you should just have to remove the card from the PC, reconnect to the onboard, and boot.
get back to that point, and once you are OK there, then we can get the new card working.
please provide info on your PC, I know its a sony vaio, but would like a model #. also, what is the new video card you got- radeon, but is it by ATI or a partner, and model #.

This should be possible through a jumper on the motherboard. Can you tell me the exact model of Vaio you have so I can direct you to the right location for the jumper?

then power down, install the new card, power up with video connected to new card which should work now, and install drivers. sound right to you?

Just been having a quick look on Sony's website but they are not very forthcoming with motherboard diagrams & they only advice they give for clearing the bios is by booting up into the bios & selecting the reset option. This is really useful when you have no display on screen!
If I can't find any accurate info when I have the model number, I suggest he just has a look on the motheboard for the jumper as they are normally easy to locate, or failing that, removes the battery.
