Switched to onboard graphics when I don't have any!

My little brother decided that he'd mess with the bios. My cpu DOESN'T have onboard graphics. He said he changed the graphics from PCI-e to onboard and it didn't show anything on the screen once he pressed F10 and save & exit. The screen is now dead. My graphics card is connected by PCI-e. Now the screen is all black, can't see anything. I forgot how the BIOS looked like, so now I can't change it back! Help? I don't have the full specs because it's off, but here is what I know: CPU: AMD athlon 64 3800+ GPU: ATI radeon HD 4350. This is the model HP Pavillion A6244n, the parts CPU and GPU/Graphics are the only upgraded ones, everything else is stock. Yes it is old, but I still do like it.

you should still be able to get ot bios simply by spaming the bios key which in this case is f10 i presume and then make him undo the changes

If PCI-e graphics is your default in the bios then you can just reset you motherboard bios, which is done depending on the motherboard. Sometimes it is a button, jumper, or take the CMOS battery out for a few secs. Its worth a shot. You cant screw it up anymore than it is right? you will have to change back any settings you did have once its been reset

That HP model has the Intel 945G chipset which has onboard integrated graphics. There is a vga port on the rear I/O panel for it.

I upgraded the CPU to an amd athlon, therefore it doesn't have that chipset.

Thanks so much, it worked! Is there a driver for this chipset/graphics? My screen resolution is a bit messed up, wanna try out the onboard graphics.
