I'm still trying to breath life into an older intel mobo by adding a graphics card. When I insert the card in the pci-e16 slot and turn on the pc, only the fans come on. It never boots. Someone suggested that I boot up normally and switch the bios from the onboard video to the pci-e slot, then restart the pc and see if it boots up. If it does not, will I be able to reverse those steps? Will I be able to get to the bios? Will I have to remove the jumper on the mobo in order to get it to boot? I've never fooled with the jumper so I am uncertain what its purpose is and how it functions. I had the card checked in a separate mobo and it is OK. Any suggestions will be appreciated.
