Default AGP and motherboard video

I have a motherboard that has on board video. I have run a very old graphics card (PCI) and I have ran the computer with dual monitors. I recently acquired an AGP video card and now I can't run dual monitors with the mobo video and the AGP card. All I get is the AGP card. Is there any way to enable the on board video when an AGP card is installed? I am running windows 2000

Usually, you can't. You can try to go into your motherboard BIOS to "enable" the on-board graphics instead of automatic. It may or may not work because they usually just allow one graphics controller to work over another, "overriding" one.
