Reboot your computer..

When the splash screen shows up ( the make of the PC Dell.HP etc) if its a custom build tap the "delete" key..

repeatedly click ..F1 or F2..you should enter your bios...

When and if you get there ..read the navigation intruction very carefully..

You should be able to find the "onboard VGA"

Yup tis how you do it, getting into bios is the easy bit, you will be presented with a menu and you navigate using the keyboard, the instructions run along the bottom. Search through the settings use your common sense here it will likely be under peripherals or something along that line. Do not change anyhting else in there look for the graphics settings and it should allow you to select to use PCI or onboard as the primary adapter you want to select PCI here. Be patient if you cant find it post back.
