I am using a Compaq Presario 6016US Desktop PC (AMD Athlon XP Processor Model 1800). It has a 32 meg integrated nVidia GeForce2 Graphics Card. I want to install a newer card for it (All the specs are made). However, I'm running into an issue which makes no sense: After uninstalling the drives for the integrated chip, turning it off from the BIOS etc. (Instructions followed under the HP Website), I find that it only detects the integrated chip. After I realized this, I decided to restart my computer at look at the BIOS. When I looked at the BIOS, even though I had NOT installed the old graphics chip drivers, it said that the internal graphics card was to be read. However, I clearly marked it off, hit F10 to save its settings, then saved the settings again which would assure that I would get the card working.
My new card is placed quite firmly in its proper slot. Nothing wrong with the card (No shocks, magnets, etc. Nothing's broken either). I plug my monitor in the port for the monitor too and it does not detect anything (No Signal). I am at a loss and can't solve my problem.
