I hope I didn't goof up. I purchased an Idea Center K Series desktop from Tiger Direct along with a KFA Nvidia GeForce 8400 video card. I bought the system to use in my church to run a projection system as a 2nd monitor. I thought enabling dual monitors would be as easy as installing the video card and connecting the projector to its output. However, with the GeForce video card in the PCIE slot, the integrated video seems to disapear leaving only the GeForce. I assumed there would be a BIOS setting that would allow me to enable both the integrated video and the PCIE card, but I can't find it.
Please tell me there's a way to make this work!

My computer is a K210 Idea Center. The adpter worked with no modifications to the power supply -- it uses the PCIE connector. It worked as soon as I installed it and booted up with no changes made to the computer configuration. I am assuming that the BIOS detected the new video card and automatically disabled the on board graphics. That's what I am hoping to avoid.
