Disabled only video adapter

I performed a knucklehead move and disabled the onboard video adapter on one of my computers (Dell Dimension 3000). It is the only adapter that is installed, so now I get a blank screen after the initial start-up.

I have limited knowledge of BIOS and CMOS and all that but I tried pulling the battery and removing the jumpers etc. to no avail. I could not locate anywhere in the BIOS to re-enable the adapter.

Is there an easy way to fix my screw-up?

Primary Video setting should do the trick.
