My onboard video worked fine yesterday, but today i tried adding a 9800gt graphics card to my Foxconn A76ML-K but it didn't seem to work so I tried to go back to the onboard video and now my monitor is not getting a signal

No, When you plug in the Discrete graphics card it causes a bypass of the onboard video chip. The only system that will use the onboard video is the new APU units, and these only give a boost to the graphics card.
Your new Foxconn motherboard Primary Graphics Adapter settings in set to onboard vga that is why there is no display in your monitor. Do not install yet your agp video card. Use first the onboard vga of the motherboard. Power up your computer and go to the BIOS settings. Locate in bios about the Primary Graphics Adapter settings and then select AGP. Save changes and the exit. Turn off your computer and now install the agp video card.
The Abit IP-95 manual doesn't show you how to adjust your bios settings when adding a PCI-E x16 graphics card. When adding a PCI-E card you'll need to adjust a few settings within, Advanced Setup. Press the delete key on your keyboard every two seconds to load your bios menu. Within Advanced Setup look for, Onboard Device Configuration and open it. Find, Primary Graphics Adapter. Set this to read as [PCI-E, VGA] save your changes and exit. Currently your onboard graphics is enabled. You'll need to change this setting to PCI-E first. When you use the onboard UniChrome Pro 2D/ 3D Graphics & Video Controller you are also using some of your system memory to run the UniChrome graphics. Once you enable the bios to boot to the PCI-E card you can also stop using your system memory assigned to the UniChrome card.

No need to break the seal on the box -- there's nothing to jumper or switch inside there anyway.
Some video card/motherboard combos will let you do this, others force you to choose one or the other, but here's how you find out.
Right-click on "My Computer" and select "manage" This will bring up Computer Management On the left side of the Computer Management window, find Device Manager and click on it. Now, on the right side, look for Display Adapters, and expand it. There should be an entry for your GT120 and hopefully another entry for your onboard video. Right-click the onboard video device, and one option should be "Enable" If you don't see this option, it's because your onboard video can't work at the same time as the GT120.
Let me know how it goes! Rate me if it works, comment back if it doesn't work and I'll see what else I can do.
It sounds like you're onboard video card is faulty. Try installing a PCI-E card into the system. Foxconn claims they warant their board for life. It would be worth checking with tech (New board).
I found no bios update that would address a fix for the onboard graphics card. (Unable to function in 3D).
Onboard VGA, page 42 in the user manual.

being a PCI card, not a AGP or PCI-E the system may not simply switch to that one a primary display adapter when you install it, in the bios under advanced system settings or intergrated periferals, you should have an option to change the primary display adapter, make sure a PCI adapter is included.. if it isnt, chage it to recognise a PCI card as a primary adapter, turn the system off, and install your card then, depending on the bios/model of the mainboard on some of those dells, it may be a little hard to find, ive had to play with a few of them
