Actually thats not necessarily true, as you can set the default to boot from motherboard anyways, which brings up a good point. If you do have a video card, and onboard graphics, try the onboard graphics connector.

Yes, you could do that with a graphics card in, but you'd have to have changed that setting. Score 0 Anonymous a b C Monitor December 11, 2011 12:57:20 AM Yes i meant that.
