To get your old video out to be enabled again, remove the CMOS battery for a few seconds (and jumper the CLR Cmos pins). When you get it back to default, see if the board will switch video automatically.

Desktops have a battery too :) 

Its a little 3 volt cr2032 in most cases.

Look for it disconnect the power(at the power supply) remove it and short(if they are at 1-2 move it to 2-3 for a few seconds then back) the pins called clr_rtc or clr_cmos.

Just to give you an idea of the battery look. Its the KTS one, the red box is the jumper location for a 2 pin only board. more boards have 3, but you get the idea.



If that fails, if you have onbaord video connect to it and look in the bios for an option to boot from PCI-E and not onboard or IGP.

Follow Nukemaster's advice. But shorting the clr cmos pins with the battery in won't always work and can damage the system.
