Are You sure the graphics card is not defect?
When I installed a graphics card instead of the onboard
circuit, the SIS Mirage was disabeled automatically.
I have installation CD for the graphics, of course.
Also, I thought that disabeling devices could be done
through the control panel, "hardware devices".

Add another video card to my Acer T108-UA381B to have two displays but system only see new card. Does not recognize the bus video


most desktops disable on board GPU in favor of the better add-on card. Your best bet is get an add on card with multiple outputs and hook all your monitors to that card. Using 2 different cards is a pain in the aft.

How do I disable my onboard graphics on my Acer Aspire T160? I want to add an HD 512MB pci express graphics card.


Hi,

You can disable the onboard VGA card in BIOS, to do so
keep on tapping F2 button as soon as you hit the power button, under the CMOS search for VGA or onboard VGA and click Disable.

Thanks

I have an Optiplex 210L and want to add on a video card. I came across an EVGA GeForce 9400gt 1GB PCI card and decided "why not!" after disabling the onboard video and setting the bios to auto (or look for...


Remove the GeForce card.
Enable the onboard video as "primary".
Start Windows.
Within Device Manager, remove the driver for the GeForce adapter.
Download the latest software software for the GeForce video-card,
and install it.
Shutdown.
Insert the GeForce card, and leave the onboard video as "Primary".
Start Windows.
It should treat the GeForce card as an "additional" video-adapter,
as if you had two monitors, side-by-side.
If it works in this configuration, shutdown.
Set the GeForce card to "primary" and restart.
If it works in this configuration, shutdown.
Set the onboard video to "disabled".
Restart.
