Re: install a second VGA card on HP D530c
Are you upgrading from the basic video that is built into your computer's motherboard? If you are trying to boost your performance by installing an after-market video card, you may need to disable the built-in video by changing the settings in your computer's BIOS (Basic Input Output System).
When your computer boots, it probably displays a message that says something similar to: Press F2 to enter "setup". This is how you get into the BIOS for your computer.
You can page through the BIOS and see the different settings you can change. If you are unfamiliar with making BIOS changes, follow two rules:
1. Write down the original setting BEFORE you make any change. That way you can undo what you did if it causes a problem.
2. Only make ONE change at a time. It's too hard to troubleshoot a problem if you make several changes at once.
Look for something that talks about Onboard video or built in video. Highlight that item and change it to "disabled" or "off".
Save the changes to the BIOS before exiting. Then reboot your computer. The new video card should work now.

the video card you used have a capability for dual monitor..so 1st thing that you need to do is to make sure that the computer recognized the 2nd monitor and activate dual monitor capability on the nvidia panel..after that on your tv select the proper source(like VGA, HDMI1 etc.) on which you'll be able to see the the video from the computer to your TV..
That all depends if you have available slot on your PCI or PCI-E buses. So let's say your running it from the built-in or onboard then you can buy a PCI-E card and install that with dual port capability. After you've installed the card you can then use both your screens simultaneously. One can be on a VGA and the other DVI port so just make sure you check out all the various video cards available. The only ones I would recommend is a GEFORCE card not an ATI RADEON. Okay so hope this helps you out.
you need a dvi to vga adapter not a dvi to vga plug and you must also go into your graphics card setup catalyst control center if its ATI Nvidia Display manager for Nvidia if you boot the computer with it pluged in and you can see the boot screen on bolth displays then its an os thing just right click and select the display manager the activate all display's through the managers

How did you disconnect the onboard VGA?
The onboard VGA device must be disabled in the BIOS and the ATI graphics card inserted in the computer.
When you bootup it should default to a standard Windows VGA configuration, then install the ATI video driver o you can get high resolution graphics.
This is the best thing you can do, reset the the CMOS setup by removing the battery, and the jumper switch to clear CMOS and then power ON and OFF the computer, return back the battery and also the clear CMOS jumper on its original settings.. and then your done. Power ON the Computer..
Note: the clear CMOS jumper can be seen always near the battery or in the lower right part of the motherboard. it has has 3 pin and the default setting is must be 1 , 2 and the pin 3 , 4 is also for clearing the CMOS. ü
