Was trying to disable onboard video to add ATI video card. Guess I goofed. Now I don't have any video at all. Not onboard or on the card. Machine boots up. (Or so it appears). Need to get something back. Any help would be amazing.

Best solution

Try using the Clear CMOS button. It will reset the bios. If there's no such button , but a header , you can use a Clear CMOS switch ( can be easily found on eBAY or FrozenCPU )
If none of that is available , remove the motherboard's battery for like 1 hr. That ought to do the trick. Be sure to put it back !

YOU are my new hero. Pulled CMOS battery and decided to go through everything while I was waiting. Pulled everything out of the tower and gave it a thorough dusting and inspection. Put it all back without add on vid card. Fired it up. OMG. I have a picture again. WooHoo. Now just have to see if I can get the stupid vid card to load the right way. Again, thank you for the suggestion. Wish me luck.

Best of luck ! I hope your graphics card will work with the system now. If it doesn't , try updating your BIOS and check the BIOS settings.

Glad I could help you.
