you can downlaod the manual which shows the jumper settings, plus diagnostic software and drivers for your board from the makers website at the address listed below.
Please rate this answer and good luck.

SOURCE: locate the jumper for the cmos
Check the manufacturers website for jumper location... Alternatively, if you can get a good look at the motherboard, sometimes the jumper sequence and location is stamped on it

It sounds like you need to change a BIOS setting. I don't have this MoBo, but on others there is a toggle to make the integrated graphics primary or secondary. You would need to change it to secondary. On this card this should happen automatically - so check BIOS settings and that your new card is properly seated in the slot.
Installing External Graphics Cards
If you want to install a 3rd party external graphics card instead of using the onboard graphics, follow these steps:

Once this jumper has been changed, turn on the computer
and the password should be cleared. Once cleared, turn the computer off
and return the jumper or dipswitch to its original position.
The location of the jumpers or dipswitches are dependent on the
manufacturer of the computer and motherboard. However, below are some general
ideas on where to find it. Remember that most motherboards could have dozens of
different jumpers, make sure you're changing the CMOS jumper and not something
else. If these general suggestions do not help refer to your motherboard /
computer documentation or skip to the next step.

On the edge of the motherboard - Most jumpers are located on the side of the motherboard for easy accessibility, verify by looking at all visible edges of the motherboard.
By the CMOS battery - Some manufactures will place the jumper to clear the CMOS / BIOS password by the actual cmos battery.
By the processor - Some manufactures will place the jumpers by the processor of the computer.
Under the keyboard or bottom of laptop - If you are working on a laptop computer the location of the dipswitch (almost never a jumper) can be under the keyboard or on the bottom of the laptop in a compartment such as the memory compartment.
Other visible location - While it is possible that the jumpers / dipswitches may not be in a visible location, most manufactures try to make things easier by placing the jumpers / dipswitches in another visible location.
If you cannot access the machine after if has been powered up, it is still possible to get past the BIOS password. The BIOS password is stored in CMOS memory that is maintained while the PC is powered off by a small battery, which is attached to the motherboard. If you remove this battery, all CMOS information (including the BIOS password) will be lost. You will need to re-enter the correct CMOS setup information to use the machine. The machines owner or user will most likely be alarmed when it is discovered that the BIOS password has been deleted.
On some motherboards, the battery is soldered to the motherboard, making it difficult to remove. If this is the case, you have another alternative. Somewhere on the motherboard you should find a jumper that will clear the BIOS password. If you have the motherboard documentation, you will know where that jumper is. If not, the jumper may be labeled on the motherboard. If you are not fortunate enough for either of these to be the case, you may be able to guess which jumper is the correct jumper. This jumper is usually standing alone near the battery. If you cannot locate this jumper, you might short both of the points where the battery connects to the motherboard.
If all else fails, you may have to clear the BIOS password by resetting the RTC (Real Time Clock) IC (Integrated Circuit) on your motherboard.
hope this helps
