Default Help setting up dual monitor setup

Im trying to setup dual monitors, i pluged a monitor into my onboard video(Intel D856BGF Mobo) and a second monitor into my AGP Geforce 5700 Ultra. So i restart the computer and the AGP card works but the onboard doesnt detect anywhere, i ran through my bios settings and cant find anything that enables onboard.... help please!

Thanks in advance!

you can't. you have to use one or another. Pci or Agp

if you want a dual monitor setup, by a video card with dual vga's

yeah, in order to use the video card, your onborad video has to be disabled, so you can't use both. the 5700 does not have dual video outs? i thought my old 5200 had em, but now i'll have to check cause i'm curious.
