Default PC using onboard intel graphics instead of my Nvidia Graphics Card

If you saw my last thread I was messing about trying to get duel monitor working, I managed this by going into bios and enabling onboard devices for duel monitor, it seems this has kicked in my onboard graphics card instead of my nvidia grahpics card.

Any idea how to resolve this without losing the ability to duel monitor?

Thanks

But seriously... can you list your motherboard model? Knowing what BIOS you're using will go a long way towards figuring it out. Also, are you sure you enabled your MB for dual monitor? Or did you maybe just set your on-board as 'first to boot'?

Why are you even adjusting your BIOS? Does your Nvidia card not have more than one output?
