Hi,

I have a very similar problem to the one here: http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-2168380/gpu-wont...

When I put in the graphics card, the integrated graphics stops working. I suspect the graphics card is disabling it. However, connecting my monitor to the graphics card results in no signal detected in all ports.

The driver for the graphics card isn't installed, but I can't use the auto-installer it unless its connected (installer needs to detect card to start installation). If its connected, I cannot use any displays so I can't install it. Catch-22

I don't see any option in the BIOS to set my integrated graphics as default for now. I updated my BIOS to the most recent version, but still no luck.

Motherboard: Biostar TZ77A
Graphics: EVGA GTS 450

I suspect I need to somehow install the card when its not plugged in, and not using the auto-installer. I have no idea how to do this. Any help? Thanks!

in BIOS, you should have the ability to select both graphics adapters (Integrated graphics and Separate GPU).

I looked everywhere in my BIOS, but couldn't find it and gave up. Your advice revitalized my efforts, so I checked the mobo's driver manual. Lo and behold, there it was, under some obscure category!

Got everything to work. Thanks!
