Ok, so a coworker bought a new video card and monitor
We installed the vid card and plugged in the monitor and nada.
Once the video card is snapped into place, the onboard stops working; switching the monitors from plug to plug, one screen is black and the one in the new vid card slot displays and in the control panel, the only one acknowledged is the one in the new slot. There is a second one "acknowledged" but it is more the vid card itself
Unsure about his mobo; he has no splash screen with bios info or anything.
