Your only chance of resurrecting this would be to have an identical board with the same bios version booted up beside you so you could see which keys to press to get to the correct setting in the Blind system.
By the way. How do you know the motherboard is otherwise working fine? Does it give a normal POST beep when you boot it?

I will ask the same question, how did u know the IGP is bad? When v-card is installed automatic onboard video disappear.

Hi Kuwese, In my experience inserting a PCI graphics card does not automatically trigger the BIOS to recognize it. That only works automatically with AGP and PCIe slots. And as far as using the motherboard manual to guide blindly through the BIOS setup menu, it might be possible if the OP has a manual. I could not find one on the net. I suspect these intel boards were used by various OEM builders and each would have their own BIOS variations.

U may be right(i have zero experience with pci v-cards but i know they are worse), if he is 100% sure the IGP is bad then he better get cheap agp v-card(if the board has agp slot) this will save him a lot of time.

Sometimes replacement is the only viable solution. You might be able to find a suitable replacement for small $$ on ebay if you really want to stick with the old socket 478 board & cpu. For not much more you can get a complete used system with higher spec.

If the PCI card is good, it will work immediately. You do NOT have to disable the onboard to get a display. Are you sure the monitor is working?
