New video card upgrade from onboard video

Pavilion P6557 c-b
Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit)
I need a blind walk-thru to disable onboard video. The onboard VGA port is physically broken off. I purchased a NVIDA GeForce GT 610 PCI-e x16 and installed. When pc is turned on, I can hear pc normal boot up sounds and hard drive activity. But no picture thru new video. Hooking to onboard video is not an option. Please help!

New video card upgrade from onboard video

Your PC is not of a new enough generation to support what is probably a UEFI vBIOS video card.

 

The type of card your motherboard BIOS will accept has to have a legacy vBIOS. 

 

MSI and sapphiretect make video cards that will support legacy BIOS.

 

Most other manufacturers do not and are presently only shipping UEFI vBIOS video cards to the market.

 

As of 2012, UEFI BIOS has become the defacto standard for motherboards for virtually all motherboard manufacturers.   

 

What is the brand and specific model number of the card?
