I think my MB has an integrated graphics card, but I don't know how to disable that. The manual doesn't say anything. But I figured that my VGA should override anything that comes on the MB.
It *should*, but for good measure, see if you can disable onboard graphics in your mobo's BIOS settings.
I had a similar problem actually when I built my box, GRUB wouldn't come up at all, so I couldn't get to Windows or Linux. Turned out it was b/c I was being a cheapskate trying to put in a 5 year old budget Nvidia card. Bought a newer one and my prob was solved.
May was well experiment to narrow down the list of potential problems. I'd yank the card and try booting off the integrated graphics. Then, disable them, and try booting off a different video card.
