Some newer systems automatically disable the onboard video when another card is detected, but since yours is a 486, there has to be a jumper or BIOS setting. Try looking on the motherboard for any identifiers to disabling the video. You can usually find something printed on the motherboards concerning the jumpers (usually found in white paint)

Check out Ray's Packard Bell site at He has a lot of good Packard Bell dirt there.

Some motherboards -- the FIC KA11 comes to mind -- will not allow you to disable the integrated chips.
