If you do have the on-board video already disabled in the bios you probably shorted out the video card with static electricity. I would try another video card first.

I assumed my mobo would change from the onboard gfx to the add on card
automatically, but it didn`t & when I changed it in the bios I got no
signal to monitor from either gfx port, I had to reset the cmos to get
the system back to the way it was,this got the onboard gfx back working.
It turned out to be a sapphire driver issue which they must have been
aware of as there was a hotfix on their website, once I ran the hotfix
the add on card was fine & still is, Ive added this reply as I remember
how I felt staring at an empty screen (distraught) & to let you know
theres hope, if theres a soloution to your problem GTG will find it.
I dont know how confident you are with opening up your computer, but if
you are ok with it, your mobo manual will tell you how to reset the cmos.
Hope your problem is an easy one to solve like mine was, if not you`ve
come to the right place, good luck & please let us know if you manage to
fix the problem yourself.

If they are ok could you possibly loan an ordinary pci gfx card & try that to
get into the bios screen, are you getting anything on the monitor screen at all
such as a no signal to monitor message? Have you tried the onboard gfx without
any add on card fitted in the mobo & have you tried reseating your memory sticks
in case they have been disturbed?
These are simple things you can do yourself & hopefully resolve the problem, if
not it will assist the helpers & tech guys at GTG if you include all your systems
details in your next post this will help them to research your motherboard details
etc, good luck

Does this mean you are getting images on your new monitor or is the
screen black with occasional flickers?

What about trying your memory sticks one at a time in case one is bad?
