HP dx2250 disable onboard video and install nVIDIA GeForce 6200 256MBDDR PCI Dual VGA

I have an HP Compaq dx2250 desktop and need to install an nVIDIA
GeForce 6200 256MB DDR PCI Dual VGA card. The desktop is runing
windows XP.

I shut down and install the new video card. Windows boots and I put
in the driver disk and install the nVIDIA card drivers. I uninstall
the ATI onboard video card in the add/remove programs and diable it in
device manager.

I reboot and go into the BIOS and change the seetings to boot first
from PCI (it was set to PCIEx and the other option is OnBoard VGA).

I save and the computer reboots, the signal from the onboard VGA is
all white - I move the VGA connection to the new card and neither port
will work.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Booting with my two monitors hooked to the NVIDIA card produces no
video output from either port.

Reset the motherboard BIOS to factory default (you may find either a
reset button or pin header next to the CMOS battery for this) And retry
- I suggest first testing what setting works on your mainboard regarding
video output before you boot into Windows; if you can't see any POST
messages, there's no point booting further.

Note that if your motherboard has onboard RAID and you use this
controller, you may invalidate your RAID set by resetting the BIOS,
depending on the motherboard. But considering your situation, no signal
on either onboard or external port - you have little options left.
