I do actually see the toshiba screen on another monitor. when i was setting up the laptop, i tried many times to get into bios, by pressing f1. it wouldnt let me in....as it turned out, it booted from cd, so i forgot about it. tried again, and it totally wont let me in.
i also noticed that the fn keyboard commands dont seem to work, and the wireless light on the front is never lit anymore, even if its in the on position. on the keyboard, a few of the fn keyboard commands look like they change the screen to be external, and there is another that i dont know what it does, is it possible that the fn menu may have just turned off the screen, and now i cant get it to go on?
how do you reset the bios, i have left the battery out for days, and it wont reset, and there is no reset hole on the bottom.
is there any way to do it other than taking the whole thing apart again to remove the bat, or change the jumper?

It sounds like the new card shorted something on system board. The fact that the display no longer works and you have to press a different button to turn it on indicates something funky is up, big time.
You may want to try updating the BIOS with the external monitor, and update the DMI string.
