New Graphics Card Problem

So this is my first time posting on this forum after looking around for a solution to my problem. I just bought a new HP Desktop and it came with Intel Integrated Graphics 4000. I also bought a Nvidia Geforce 220 (I know it's a crap card, I just need it for photoshop and video editing and whatnot. So when I installed the new card and turned on the computer the monitor received no signal and the computer made 6 short beeps. It then stayed but the monitor turned off because it wasn't getting a signal. How do I fix this? I heard I have to disable the integrated graphics in device manager but I'm afraid if I do that and the card doesn't work, I won't have a way to turn it back on. Any help is appreciated.

Ya, change that in BIOS.
Or check whether you have connected the cables right.

Have you connected the Monitor cable to GPU?

I looked through the BIOS and couldn't find a way to disable onboard graphics or choose the boot device. And yes I connected the monitor to the GPU.

Look for a Youtube video to do so.
