I have an Intel processor that does NOT have integrated graphics. https://www.neweggbusiness.com/product/product.aspx?item=9b-19-117-981

However, my MOBO does support integrated graphics. I am trying to boot for the first time and I am trying to display with a graphics card. I cannot get any signal from the graphics card.

Is the BIOS defaulting to integrated graphics even though my CPU does not support it?

If so, how can I change this?

that's not how it works.

By default, when you have a graphics card inserted, the system will default to the graphics card and the iGPU (if there is one) is disabled.

Make sure your GPU is plugged into the top most PCIe slot, and that ALL the power cables for it (if it requires any) are firmly plugged into it.

Lastly, make sure you plug the video cable to the monitor into the graphics card, not the back of the motherboard.

I appreciate the insight! Unfortunately, I have tried your suggestions and no display still. I suppose the problem must be lying elsewhere.
