Low profile visiontek 9250 pci video card problems
 
I purchased a 9250, low profile, PCI and when I put it into my machine it doesn't seem to work. Now, without the video card in, everything works fine, put the video card in, all video ceases to work (neither the video card, nor the onboard, will output any video). The bios is configured to display using the PCI video card if one exists, but there isn't an option to disable onboard completely, it just disables it if there is another video card to use. I think my video card is broken, but I thought I would ask before I try to RMA it.

Can you see anything related to your graphic card when you use lspci command in terminal?

When the graphics card is installed I can't get any video from anything.

What I think is happening is when the graphics card is installed the motherboard recognizes that it is a graphics card and disables the onboard video, but then the graphics card isn't displaying video for some reason. The machine works fine without the graphics card installed using onboard video.

The bios disables the onboard graphic when it finds dedicated graphic card. Looks like you need to reconfigure your xorg detect the card properly. search around the forum, you should get the way to install driver for that graphic card.

Shouldn't the bios graphical stuff (loading screen, press del to enter setup, etc) still display? I think someone once told me that there are generic drivers that enable any video card to work with limited functionality so that the drivers can be installed. If my mobo didn't happen to have onboard video I wouldn't be able to do anything at all.
