Video Card Issue with HP 8665c

I'm trying to install a new vid card but can't disable my onboard video in the Bios menu.

Hp is no help....so i gave up on them.

Current OS Win98

Vcard: Geforce4


I would appreciate any assistance.

Thanks in advance

is the problem that there is no option in the bios, or that you can't access the bios menu?

There is no option in the bios to disable the onboard video.
I'm only given the option to either allocate 1MB or 512kb of space to the onboard video, but no option to disable it .

Also, there are no jumpers on the board to disable the video.

You've probably been through this, but here are the instructions from HP's site just in case.

Looks like you don't go through either BIOS or the board to disable.

a stupid question, but worth asking... you've tried plugging the monitor into the new video card and verified that it doesn't work, right? (ie, that both vidcards can't work at the same time?)
