I am not ignoring what you wrote in what I have just trimmed and neither 
am I belabouring the point, but I find it most strange that your BIOS - 
even if it is on a Dell computer - not to have the ability to choose 
which video to use.

As far as I know - which is not much - your BIOS will show the standard 
options when you enter the BIOS settings (?CTRL-DEL? or does Dell use 
some other combination of keys?) but then if you press something like 
CTRL-Fx you will get additional options displayed. Have you tried this 
to see what those "hidden" options are?
