  1. PC is off, remove your 2nd graphics board by opening the side panels, locate the CMOS jumper, usually its near the battery, the setting is 1 2, place the jumper to 2 3 momentarily, after about 3 seconds, place it back to 1 2. If you cannot find the CMOS jumper, just remove the battery.

  3. connect the monitor to its built in graphics vga.
