    Im not familiar with that board but sometimes if you put a discrete graphics card into your motherboard it sometimes auto matically shuts off onboard graphics. Given that the 8400 can handle 2 outputs by itself, Id just disable the ATI onboard graphics and remove all the drivers for it to ensure the ATI drivers dont conflict with Nvidia drivers.
