I've got a Dell Dimension 3100 machine, running on windows xp sp3, that needs an upgraded PCI Video card so I can have 2 monitors at once. I bought an ati radeon 9000 and went through the process of taking the case off, installing the card, and having windows identify it and install the drivers from the CD.
So, it looks like it has installed fine, Device Manager shows that its there, with no issues. But I can't get it to want to use that card as the primary adapter. My feeling is that I need to get into the BIOS to turn off the default adapter. However, when I boot, I see 0 for a boot screen. Like, nothing, just black, until the blue windows screen shows up.
My question is, how can I view the start up screen on boot, and view the BIOS?
thanks for any help.
