How do i find out witch display driver to disable so i can install new video card


You don't need to disable any driver, unplug, use ESD protection, install Graphics Card, move the monitor cable to the new card,(you may have to boot on the old monitor connection and install driver), install the driver for the new card and reboot plug into the new card. Do your windows updates to obtain the latest driver. You can open the Device Manager, open Display adapters and disable the Intel graphics adapter. Is it a PCI or AGP Graphics Card? Remember: with a Aftermarket Graphics Card it requires more Power/Watts, you should consider a PSU upgrade. You didn't post the Make, Model Graphics Card, usually there is a Min. Power Spec. for the card listed on the box.

try booting in safe mode, and watch as the drivers are opened, as safe mode boots. take note of the last driver or file which it stops on before freezing or resetting, then look up (google) the name of the file or driver (.dll file), to find out where your problem is. if it turns out to be a driver file associated with your phone modem, then it is your phone modem which is preventing the computer from starting.

if that doesnt work, then strip the computer down completely to 1 ram stick, the cpu, mobo, video card (or integrated) and 1 hard drive. disable any unnecesarry integrated components (such as the soundcard) in BIOS, and remove any usb devices or pci cards which are not absolutely necessary to boot the computer (such as a phone modem card, an external hard drive or wireless network card).

the computer should boot once stripped down to the bare essentials and all unnecessary hard ware is disabled/removed. if it boots, then add back/reenable your extra cards, and devices one at a time, until you find the device which is keeping it from booting.

if it will still not boot when stripped down, then it is an essential, such as the motherboard, which is at fault.

Can I add a NIC card to my compaq presario pc sr5250nx? I keep loosing my internet connection every five minutes and have to reboot the computer to reconnect


you should be able to
http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00840496.pdf

if your system is still within warranty I would think twice about opening the case yourself to installing a new network card.. you will be voiding your warranty.. so think about it

another thing i would try before deciding on going for another network card is to check your onboard network adapter has updated drivers... or you may want to reinstall the drivers for that adapter.. either one of those may probably fix your issue assuming is not a hardware failing given that your system may not be that old.... make sure you check the windows update and look for any new hardware driver for your network adapter that may be avaliable through windows update.

before you install your new network pci card you may have/want to disable the one on board going into your bios for that. so to ensure there's no resource conflicts when installing the driver for your new card (it may not be a problem even if you don't but if you run into problems while installing the new card consider this suggestion)

Installing modem


By the looks of your question, it appears you may have an internal PCI modem. If that is the case, please state your PCI modem brand and model. You may have what is called a WinModem or "softmodem" because they were usually US Robotics modems made strictly for windows. They are known to be buggy with their software drivers and hard to install but not impossible. Since softmodems use your CPU's power one solution would be to change to an external modem (since they have their own processor) and save yourself some headaches later on.

Thanks.

How to disable onboard/integrated video in bios


I would suggest attempting to configure it through windows. Go start, control panel, display and set the secondary output which should be your pci card to display the primary screen. If that does not work I would suggest going onto the hp website and searching for further assistance.
