Hi guys, I'm new here and looking for some help, I was a bit confused as to what section to put this post in! Well here the problem is:

I formated my computer, I have a Kocab 18g motherboard, an NVidia GeForce4 MX onboard graphics card and a main graphics card, NVidia Eagle 6600. I installed Windows XP, etc, installed the latest NVidia drivers from the NVidia website, restarted my computer, (the reason I did this was to get the Eagle 6600 to be used instead of the onboard graphics card), plugged the monitor cord into the back of the Eagle 6600, so it was no longer connected to the motherboards onboard graphics card, turned on the computer and nothing happened. The screen was black.

I need to get the Eagle 6600 working, because it's 100x better than the crappy onboard card, and I use it for a bit of gaming. I have no idea how to get the computer to use the Eagle 6600, (if it's even working properly, as in the drivers are installed, the correct drivers, etc), instead of the onboard graphics card.

I've tried to change settings in the BIOS, but there is no setting to disable the onboard graphics card, I've tried fiddling in Device Manager, no help, I've tried lots of things, but I just can't seem to get it to work, I'd appreciate some help on getting this fixed, it's really driving me insane! This is a screenshot of the device manager, not sure if it's related but I'd say it is:



Notice the different icons, I've tried to search for the drivers with a CD that came with the motherboard, no help, so yeah, please help me!

Regards in advance.

tap f8 as you are booting and choose vga mode from the options
disable the onboard if it listed in the device manager
install your drivers
reboot the computer
if you cannot get anything on screen did you check your power supply was capable of running the card
usually video and power upgrades go hand in hand
