    My friend got a new gfx card so that he could extend his desktop to his pc to use his pc as a media center/work station. His plan is to plug it to the computer using s video.

    He installed the gfx card but the connection is different from the one the monitor uses. He plugged in to on board video and has also set to boot from the on board video as primary but every time the computer boots the monitor still doesnt have signal.

    Is there a way to boot from the on board video while still having the card in the pci slot so that he can extend his desktop to the tv?
