How to make PCI-e GPU primary (NT8500gt)

On my daughter's PC that has the motherboard BIOSTAR N61PB-M2S with a GPU on board (GeForce 6150SE nForce 430) works fine...

I was put PCIe GPU NT8500gt (from another PC it was working) when I connect monitor on that GPU I have no signal on it...

Where did I go wrong?

If you've loaded the drivers, check the BIOS to see if there's an option to select the Primary Display Adapter. That board has a single VGA port so the BIOS is probably set for that port.

Yep. It's usually called PCI/PEG

It needs to be set as PEG for the 8500gt to be set as the primary adapter. The onboard will then be the secondary card which you can connect the second display to.
