Conflict with onboard graphics card?

Specs: Windows Vista, Intel Pentium dual cpu E2160
Acer Aspire AM 5640 running vista 32 with an onboard video card NVIDIA Geforce with VGA and HDMI slots. I uninstalled/deleted the NVIDIA display drivers, defaulted to VGA only. Installed the new card and nothing is viewable. If I remove the card and put my vga back in the onboard, all is viewable again. From what I have read on the same problem, posts mention to make changes to cmos and bios which just arent options on my machine?

I figure somehow I have got to disable the onboard card, but just havent figured out how?

Onboard card? It's onboard video or igp(intergrated graphic processor).What u need to do is to set initial display or something similar to pci-e(pci-e slot) and look for option to reduce shared memory or disable onboard video all the options can be found in bios. And u didn't mention the video card name.

Possible dumb question but did you move the monitor cable to the add in card?
