Problem with dual monitors

By appraisers ·
Hi Guys, I've got a compaq presario 6310ca with integrated video I'm trying to set up dual monitors for. I picked up a dual ATI PCI card for it and plugged it in, and it disabled the onboard video, but didn't output any video from the new card. Now I know I can go into the bios and disable the onboard video, but what happens if the new pci doesn't fire up and display video? Will the mother board revert back to the onboard video after its been diabled in the bios after rebooting with the PCI Card removed?

Hi there. That is a pickle, no doubt. If you disable the onboard card and try the PCI card and neither of them work, simply reset the BIOS to defaults using the motherboard jumper. That will at least get your onboard card back on. It's a pain, but it will at least get your video back.
