hello sir u need to do two things *deactivate the onboard vga adapter from the bios *and install the official lates driver for ur card if u can't find it tell me wht's ur operating system i will provide u a download link
You should enter Bios setup when restarting and check that it says AGP or PCI for video display. You can then go to Start then Run and type in msconfig. Go through the list for the startup menu and make sure that NVIDIA is displayed with a checkmark. When you installed the new driver, also make sure that you disabled the default VGA driver too. You may have to check that out. If both are running there will be conflict. Any questions, please don't hesitate.
It appears that you have spent real time and money to upgrade your system.
I understand your problem. You want dual output VGA's to have two monitors setup with your system. The computer, HP500 has an onboard VGA out, and your add-on PCI express will not give you a second out VGA.
More than likely, HP / Compaq might not support this configuration with thier CMOS>
Maybe better soloution would be since you already have a VGA and DVI video outputs from your new PCI express board would be to go into BOIS and disable your onboard VGA. The VGA should then revert to the new PCI express board. You then could connect the second monitor to have both on the PCI express board. If you have only VGA (blue type) connectors, you can get a DVI to VGA adapter.
At Newegg online or Tiger Direct should have them if needed for less than &10, plus S&H.
I am presuming that the mainboard is an Asus model with integrated VGA.
In order to perform the following steps you may have to remove your new VGA board and reconnect your monitor to the mainboard VGA in order to have a display on your monitor.
If your new VGA board is an AGP or PCI express, connecting your monitor to the new VGA board should have been detected and applied the VGA output through the new board. If the new VGA board is a PCI type then go to the new steps to make changes to your CMOS via the BIOS settings.
If not the Asus mainboard may have to have the CMOS setup change through your BIOS settings.
Upon bootup you should be able to hit the delte key and the BIOS screen should come one. Scroll down to the a view that will show "Onboard Settings" or similar wording. Select and disable the Asus onboard VGA or video.
If problem still persist, then go to the Assus.Com web site for support on your model Asus mainboard for the maunual, or trouble shooting questions on settings.

During the initial boot sequence (as soon as you turn your PC on), try pressing <DEL> button (or F2 or F10 - you will see info on the bottom of the screen stating something like "Press _____ (del, F2, F10) to go to Setup..."
This will take you to BIOS, main setup panel for your PC. There you can find and option for switching your main GFX card. Options will be something like: onboard, pci, agp. You should choose PCI.
Try doing this after you insert your new PCI gfx in your computer.
During boot press DEL to get into standard BIOS settings, while in standard BIOS hold CTL key and press F1 this will alow hidden features to show in BIOS. Enter into Integrated Peripherals and you should now see a entry called INIT DISPLAY FIRST and you should be able to select between PCI Onboard and AGP (Depending on what you have installed). I have the same motherboard and had also upgraded to the 6200 which works great after finding the hidden BIOS features. Hope this does the trick for you!
