disable intergerated video card to allow for pci card to function


You need to access the BIOS to disable the on-board video. Do you have Windows 7 installed or have you upgraded to Windows 8?

For Windows 7, turn off the computer and then turn it back on. After pressing your on switch press Delete repeatedly to access the BIOS. (Some computers use Tab or another key, you should see a screen indicating the correct key.) If Windows starts to load, try again. (I usually have to try 3-4 times to press the key at the correct time following the POST.)

For Windows 8, the boot sequence can be too fast to hit the key. Use the Advanced Restart option. Access the Charms menu and choose Settings > General > Advanced Startup. Alternatively, Charms > Settings > Power > press Shift and then select Restart. This should give you a Boot options menu and you'll be able to access the BIOS from that.

On my machine, I need the Advanced BIOS and then the System Agent Configuration. Then I select Initiate Graphics Adapter. Your BIOS may be slightly different. Go through your VGA graphics for disabling the on-board graphics and enabling the correct PCI/PCI-e graphics option.

I hope this helps.

usb or ps2 keyboard ? might need to be enabled in BIOS

If you want to use a USB keyboard to access Windows command prompt options, make changes in the BIOS (Basic Input/Output System), or to operate legacy operating systems, you must enable support for the device inside the BIOS.

Shut down the computer and disconnect the USB keyboard. Connect a PS/2 keyboard to the PS/2 connector port on the rear of the computer. Turn on the computer and press the "Delete" key several times as soon as you see the initial boot or company logo screen. Wait for the main BIOS setup screen to appear. Press the right or left arrow keys to move the cursor to the "Advanced" or "Advanced Settings" menu option. Press the "Enter" key. Move the cursor to the "Integrated Peripherals" or "Peripheral Configuration" menu option. Press the "Enter" key. Press the down-arrow key to navigate to the "USB Controllers" option. Press the "+" or "-" key to change the menu option to "Enabled." Move the cursor to the "USB Legacy Support" or "USB Legacy Function" field. Press the "+" key repeatedly until the value option changes to "Enabled." Press the "F10" key to save changes to the BIOS settings and exit the setup utility. Wait until the computer begins to restart and then press the power button and hold it for approximately four or five seconds. The computer shuts down completely. Unplug the PS/2 keyboard from the computer and set it aside. Reconnect the USB keyboard restart the computer. As soon as you see the initial boot screen, tap the "Delete" key several times and wait for the BIOS setup screen to appear. If you are able to access the BIOS setup screen with the USB keyboard, USB support is active in the BIOS.

how do i access the BIOS of my pc? when my plug and play compatable sound system is connected to my onboard sound, the computer does not detect the device


You can access the BIOS by rebooting the computer. Upon bootup, press DEL button (you may want to press it several times). The BIOS or CMOS settings will appear. You may need to enable USB devices for your computer. Good luck!
