Ok, so I took a pci - express video card out of a computer in my house to test in another one. Before I took it out, I disabled the display adapter from within Windows. Now that I'm done with the testing, I tried to place the card back in and boot up Windows, but the monitor gets a "No signal" error after getting past the Windows loading screen. I'm assuming this is because I disabled the display adapted inside Windows earlier. So then I tried to boot up Windows using the onboard display adapter, and got the same no signal error, and I think I remember my dad telling me he disabled the onboard video earlier for some other reason. To solve this problem, I'm guessing that I'd need to stick another card in (plug and play FTW!) and boot up Windows on that, then re-enable my PCI-E card, then reboot using that one instead. Unfortunately, that means ripping an old PCI card out of another computer in my house. :( Am I right with this method?

Nevermind, I solved the problem. The onboard VGA was disabled inside the bios, so I just had to run it in VGA - Enabled Safe Mode and re-enable the display adapter in device manager.
