My new PC has on-board video with DVI and VGA ports (both ports can be used at the same time).

I didn't have the correct VGA to DVI adaptor on hand so I installed my spare NVIDIA GeForce GT 230 video card.

Main monitor is on the NVIDIA and the extended desktop monitor is using the on-board video card.

Every time I reboot the machine my main monitor is upside down and the other monitor is off. I have to go through and set up each monitor every time using the NVIDIA control panel and Windows 7 control panel Display settings.

This is a hardware conflict of some sort. HP's specs for your PC says

*Integrated video is not available if a graphics card is installed

Better get the adapter you need.
