Disabled onboard graphics... lost display

I'm not sure what happened. I was getting a message on my desktop talking about ATI Catalyst not recognizing my display adapter. After doing some quick research I read somewhere that I might need to disable my onboard video. I did that, and the screen went dead.

I came back a few minutes later, and it was magically back on. Unphased by my previous disaster, I did something else that someone recommended, namely uninstalling the Catalyst Control Center. When I turned my computer back on, there was, again, no display.

Please help me. If I can get this fixed, I promise to stop listing to my instincts (without asking first).

A bit more information about how brilliant I am.

The thread that said to uninstall the Catalyst Control Center was for someone who was upgrading FROM a Radeon card to an Nvidia card. I built a new system with an Asus 7870, and am just trying to get the system to fully recognize my new card. These are clearly different situations.

Ugh. Your help is greatly appreciated.

are you sure the monitor is plugged into the graphics card, and not the on board?
