HP 6000 Pro MT WIndows 7
I need to enable onboard video card after install a dual video card. It is an NVIDIA card from HP with Dual DVI for the PCIe slot. I am trying to run 3 monitors and onboard card will not enable. There is no place in the bios to enable the onboard card.

I believe when installing a dedicated video card, system will disable on board card immediately (it disables IGP, no way we can find in BIOS). Some forums say with new H67 and Z68 boards we can do this. In short, we can not do this on the HP 6000 Pro MT.

I have done it with a PCI card but it is older and does not have windows 7 drivers. It would blue screen about once a week. I thought if I got a new HP card I would eliminate that problem.

Mpl, welcome to the forum.
Normally, the integrated video is disabled when you install a discrete video card. Here is what it says in the Hardware Reference Guide in Table 1-3 Rear Panel Connectors:
"The monitor connectors on the system board are inactive when a graphics card is installed in the computer".
If a graphics card is installed into the PCI or PCI Express x1 slot, the connectors on the graphics card and the system
board may be used at the same time. Some settings may need to be changed in Computer Setup to use both
connectors. For information about setting the boot VGA controller, refer to the Computer Setup (F10) Utility Guide.
