I have fitted a new graphics card to my neighbours old (very Old) Packard Bell. Its accepted and the drivers are loaded from 98se disk. When restarted it says It does not support multi-screen. I have gone to the Bios to disable onboard graphics but (showing my ignorance) cannot find anything. Onboard sound is there. What I would really like to know is do they use any other words for video. here are things there I just do not understand. Onboard FDD and three onboard paralell ports with numbers and letters. If anyone can understand a word of this I would reall like some help.

I had the same problem with my first system when I fitted a PCI card (No agp slot) mine was a jumper on the mainboard if your neighbour has a mainboard book look it up but being packard bell you will be lucky I had to use a magnifying glass to find the jumper but all worked fine after I found and changed it.
