Hello All,
I currently Dual Boot Win. XP sp3 and PCLinuxos
My computer is a Compaq Desktop and has integrated graphics and I have also
an Nvidia FX5200 PCI slot mounted graphics card.
Today I Booted into Win XP went into System>Hardware>Device Manager>Display Manager found my integrated
graphics and set it to not use this device - I then went to the Nvidia card and set it to use this device.
Then I rebooted and now I have NO signal to the monitor with ether of the graphics cards in XP only.
XP boots up just no display on the monitor.

Is there a way that I can change the setting of the integrated graphics in the device manager with out having to reinstall ?

What was the primary/used graphics adapter...before you started changing things in the BIOS?

Have you tried reversing the changes you made...and uninstalling/removing the FX5200?

Did you change the default video adapter in the BIOS to the PCI card??
