I know this is really old, but I had the same problem on my 206m 8584 with a pci-e x1 video card. I had to upgrade bios first, but nothing seemed to change, bios only showed onboard video as option and windows perfectly recognized the exta card. I went to windows video settings, it showed both video, onboard as main and active and extra as inactive, changed the second video to main and active and switched the plug to finally see my enhanced video. Only problem is that bios screen won't show up on pci-e card, so I start seeing something only after one minute :) Hopes this saves someone else some time.
I had exactly the same problem on my friends Dell GX280. It will only let you use the onboard card or the new radeon card not both together. In the end we had to buy a Radeon card that was made specifically for two monitors and disable the onboard card on BIOS. It would not let us use the two seperate cards in unison.
Please expalin how you know "drives are good" (sic) As it would appear to me that this is indeed your problem? Unless as you say the video card has turned up it's toes. As you said the best way to check that is to enable the onboard Video and check, exactly what happens when you do that? Yes it will automatically use the video, it would install a generic video driver,and show video, are you sure the monitor is OK,have you swapped it out? Simply removing the Video card will automatically enable the onboard video, so you won't need to get inro BIOS. Check the RAM too, and remove any other cards in it.
Turn the computer off.
Remove the PCI-E video-card.
Boot the computer.
Press DEL to "enter BIOS setup".
Disable the "onboard video" adapter,
or set the highest video-priority to be the PCI-E slot.
Save settings, but do not "exit" from BIOS setup.
Turn the computer off.
Install the PCI-E video-card.
Disconnect the video-cable from the onboard VGA-port,
and connect the video-cable to the new video-card.
Turn the computer on, and the video-output through the new video-card should be displayed on your monitor.
try repeatadely pressing delete on startup with the monitor cable attached to your onboard graphics socket but keep the new graphics card in. then you should go into the bios. change the graphics setting to your graphics car and then save and reboot. it should now work from your new graphics card
Just a suggestion for you to try. This is to check whether your PCI-E card is ok or not. The BIOS setting option should be on PCI Express. Take out the power cable from the hard disk - we don't want to mess around with window driver or system that might be the culprit. Now turn on the computer, if ok, you should see some texts on your screen. This is a confirmation that your PCI-E card is still working. So then for you to work on your windows to solve the problem. Good luck.
