*Need Help Navigating BIOS on HP Pavilion 1020*

The onboard video card burned out so now i have to navigate the bios "in the dark" to change the video over to PCI card.


So i need to know the key combination to get to the video section to switch it over.


EXAMPLE: F1,right arrow X3,down arrow,enter,down arrow, enter.

Can you be a little more specific on the model number?




BTW, there is nothing you need to do in BIOS if this is a desktop.


Once you unplug the power, wait 30 sec, plug in your new graphics card and then boot, the BIOS will disable the onboard graphics automatically.


If you can still navigate the BIOS, the graphics may be okay. See if your RAM may be going bad (try other memory)
