Seeking a BIOS / CMOS guru out there to help me out or point me in the right direction.

Long story short, Integrated VGA port on my girlfriends PC was ripped from motherboard -> Don't Ask...

Can not get display to come up through PCI or PCI-E because it's still set for integrated graphics.

I have the latest BIOS rom file from the HP website, and I can access the Desktop via SSH / VNC when it gets to Desktop.

I need some help editing this rom file correctly, I just need to set the video settings to boot up PCI-E instead of on board. I know this is possible because of this post:
Updating the BIOS using linux

So I guess I have two solutions:
extract nonvol, change video bit, fix CRC
or
find video settings in new ROM file and flash via Linux

Only problem is I have no idea how locate the video setting in either the ROM file or the NONVOL which I still need to extract.
For MB: M2N68-LA -> https://h20000.www2.h...ec...=c01925548
I have attached the BIOS ROM just throw it in a hex editor if you know AWARD addresses...

At stock settings the bios should detect the newly installed video card and automatically disable the integrated video, have you tried clearing the CMOS using the jumper on the motherboard?

Dude I could kiss you, I wasn't going to try that because I thought it would reset right back to onboard, but it freakin worked thank you so much for suggested it so I would actually try it. I just traded a 15" serial elo touchscreen for an Nvidia Geforce 9600 GSO, and went to Best Buy for a 400 watt PSU, only to be bummed that it wouldn't output. Again, thank you for suggesting this, I should have tried it like my inner voice was saying to begin with.
