Bios problem on the DX 6100 MT

I have a Hp dx 6100 MT I installed a graphic video on the PCIex16 slot but not detected.
F10 run setup and device options item not listed on integrated video board to turn it off
Why not get this item?
How I can disable the integrated graphics and activate the external?
The BIOS version is the last (786C1 v02.15)

thanks for the help ..

Hi:

 

On your model (and any dc and dx model desktop that I am aware of), when you install a PCIe video card, the onboard video is automatically disabled.

 

If you install a PCI video card, you would then see a BIOS setting as to which video adapter should be the primary video card--onboard or PCI.

 

So, this means that either the video card you installed requires too much power, the card is defective, or the card is incompatible with your machine.  My money is on one of the last two assumptions.
