Default Is it possible to enable onboard agp alongside addon card ?

I've got some still-working monitors from my friends and would like to extend my desktop pc to have dual monitor

However the mainboard simply disable onboard agp card when another agp card is in the agp slot. I guess this is normal behaviour, but is there a workaround? Like a bios modification or something? Or is it simply impossible? Other than having to buy another pci card or replacing old one with dual head card.

my board: asus p4vp-mx
