Odds are the BIOS is set for the onboard because it was booted up without a GFX card. Install the card back in your computer, but leave the VGA hooked to the onboard. Go back into the BIOS and set it for a GFX card (you'll have to look around for it... been years since I had a mobo with onboard). finish booting and (hopefully) you will lose your screen. Switch the VGA over to the card and continue installing it.
Cheers for the reply, i will have a look in the BIOS. No i didnt have to change anything to get the onboard working.
I dont think i had to deactiviate it with the fx5500.
One thing i dont understand is you save "install the card back into your computer" What card you talking about? Coz the fx5500 is broken. And the new one i cnt install.
