When your computer turns on, press F2 or F12 or Del key to get into the BIOS. Then find the part in the menu where it sais something like GPU or graphics Bus, switch it to PCI instead of Onboard. All motherboards are different so this is a general approach to the menu in the BIOS but definataly check in the BIOS.

When I go to the bios settings on my aspire mc605 it won't let me override the onboard graphics settings, I need to disable this to fit a new graphics card


You can disable onboard graphic on BIOS. Make changes to start on discrete graphic not dual graphic ( discrete vga+onboard vga )

Could be any number of issues, try checking your ram first. Sometimes when the ram cards are either, broken, loose, or the latches arent properly connected the ram card wont complete the circuit and the screen will remain blank, if cards are attached properly them try taking one card out amd run it with only one card, then switch the cards and try again, remember to check the latches are all closed even on the empty slots.

it could also be you graphics card, check that you are connecting the screen to the output from the graphics card and not the onboard, it is an override to the onboard. If that fails try taking out the graphics card and runing output through the motherboards onboard.

This answer assumes basic knowledge of computer components and installation

Trouble with install second video card HD 5450 to emachines t6532


Unclear of your statement. (More like run-on sentence)

Problem heading statement reads,
"trouble with install second video card HD5450 TO eMachines T6532"

Need clarification

The eMachines T6532 Desktop PC uses an MSI MS-7207 motherboard.
Also known as the MSI K8NGM2-L,

http://www.msi.com/product/mb/K8NGM2-FID--IL--L.html

(Click on photo for a better image)


Has one long white PCI Express x16 slot. (Expansion Slot)
Only uses one graphics card at a time, will Not use two.

[Graphics card / Video card. Same/same]

Therefore I surmise you are not referring to adding a Second graphics card, but are referring to;

A) This is the second time you have added a graphics card.

Or,

B) This is the second ATI Radeon HD5450 graphics card.
Had one before. Removed it, and are using a new one.

Or,

C) This is the second time you have added a graphics card.
It is not an ATI Radeon HD5450 like the old one is.

Know this;
1) You can ONLY use the OnBoard (Integrated) graphics,
OR the graphics card.
You CANNOT use both.

When using a graphics card the monitor is plugged into it.
You cannot plug into the onboard graphics of the motherboard, with it installed in the computer.

Said differently;
With the graphics card physically installed in the computer, you cannot just unplug the monitor from the graphics card; and plug it into the OnBoard graphics of the motherboard.

[Also; Computer on, you CANNOT unplug a monitor, and plug it back in.
This = NO ]


2) Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device.

The device is the graphics card.
The version of Windows operating system was not stated.

Did you install the software from the Installation Disk? (CD/DVD)
Has the drivers on it, and the user interface software.
User interface software for an ATI graphics card, is Catalyst Control Center.

(Just to note; I'm using a Powercolor Radeon HD5450 graphics card, right now.
I'm using dual monitors.

HP 2009M - 20 inch widescreen LCD monitor, and an RCA L26HD31 HDTV as the main monitor. (26 inch HDTV)
They work GREAT! ]

(It is an ATI Radeon HD5450 graphics card just like yours, IF yours has 1GB of graphics memory.

Doesn't matter what graphics card manufacturer, makes that HD5450, it is still an ATI (AMD) design.

Powercolor, VisionTek, Sapphire, Diamond Multimedia, Mickey Mouse, or Goofy. It is still an ATI graphics card )

The ATI Radeon HD5450 graphics card, has to have a MINIMUM power requirement of 350 Watts.
Does your power supply have 350 Watts or more?

If it is the original power supply, the answer is NO.

Back then power supply manufacturers were 'fudging' the true maximum rated wattage.
Why?

Sold more power supplies.

Power supply rated at 250 Watts?
Nope.
More like 60 to 70 percent of that.

Divide 250 by 10.
= 25.
Take that times 6. = 150 Watts (60 percent)
Times 7 = 175 Watts (70 percent)

Would like your opening statements clarified.
Post back in a Comment.

Can i put a ati radeon 9550 graphics card in a dell dimension 2400


You can put any graphics card in any machine you just need to install the proper driver
Use to be a jumper on the mother that disabled the onboard video but today I think the soft hardware saves use the trouble.
You can run 2 monitors at one time using the 2 video graphics... card and the one on board just set you display properties

Cant utilize extended monitor function in XP w/ onboard chipset as other VGA out


You cannot use both the onboard video and a separate card at the same time. Are you trying to use multiple monitors? Your video card must support that if you are, and the Radeon 7500 does not mention that it does. If it does, the ATI Catalyst drivers will have the option.

Integrated graphic controller in p4msd-800


Hi a_car, I understand your trouble. Mach Speed shows little information about the bios settings. The fastest way to get the bios to load the onboard graphics would be to clear the cmos jumper. This is shown on page 12. JCMOS1: Clear CMOS Header. Do not forget to set the jumper back to normal. If this fails to load the onboard graphics card I'll try & guide you from memory.
Enter the bios. Go to the title Advanced. Within advanced menu look for, advanced chipset features & integrated peripherals. One or both should list the settings you want to change too. When using the onboard graphics card, you will also need to set the total amount of system memory you want the graphics to use.

Good luck a_car!
Thank you for using fixya.
Merry xmiss!

ECS M925 MoBo onboard graphics


Well it all depends on if the onboard is fried. Usually, that's a sign of overheating. I'd toss in a case fan. Maybe try running the system with the side of the case off of it. If it still does this try putting a fan beside it to give it a massive rush of airflow. If it stables out, then it's a heat issue.

You can put an AGP card into that motherboard, which is always beneficial to the performance since the processor and RAM isn't being used by the video. However, you'll need to disable the onboard video system in the BIOS before you can really use an AGP card to it's ability.

I hope this helps bud.
